My journey began with a dream to explore the world, starting with my beloved Mongolia. Having almost completed this adventure, I transitioned into the role of a social media marketer at our company in 2019. It's been a thrilling experience to witness the joy and excitement in the eyes of my guests as they discover the pristine landscapes and immerse themselves in our captivating history. At our company, trust and reliability are our cornerstones. We strive to provide an experience that's not just about visiting places, but about forging connections with the heart of Mongolia. It's an honor to introduce travelers to the raw beauty and rich heritage of my native land. Welcome to Mongolia, a land where ancient history meets untouched wilderness. As the proud owner of a family travel tourism company, my love for exploration and showcasing the beauty of my homeland runs deep. Having traversed the vast landscapes and absorbed the rich history myself, I understand the yearning for authentic, secure travel experiences.

    Well what a surprise, I had a wonderful time too, despite the short duration of my stay! It provided me with a good glimpse into the life of Mongol/nomads. The team was well organized; the family team was hospitable, and I was impressed by the thoroughness and attention to detail of the business.It was the perfect introduction to Mongolia and horseback riding! All the best.

    My wife and I had an incredible experience, one of the best we've ever had. It was a bit challenging for me, riding 30-40 km daily, and my wife is more experienced than me. Despite that, I enjoy challenges and this was just what I needed after two years of city life in Korea. Under the guidance of Rinston, our three-person team took care of all the arrangements and constantly checked in with us to ensure we were comfortable with the tasks. We are already thinking about returning to ride with this team again in the future.
