Mongolia is likely the only place where the horse population exceeds that of humans. Horses have been at the heart of nomadic life in Mongolia and have played a crucial role in Mongolian history and culture. These resilient and low-maintenance horses were essential to the conquests of Chinggis Khaan's armies in the 13th century, and they continue to enable Mongolians to live and travel across the vast steppes of Inner Asia much like their ancestors did for thousands of years. 

This trek offers a unique opportunity to live and ride alongside the descendants of Chinggis Khaan himself, with a focus on horseback riding in a pristine ecosystem northeast of Ulaanbaatar, near the birthplace of Genghis Khan and likely a hunting ground from the early 13th century.

The price displayed is for groups 10-12 people. 6-9 participants: $1,750 pp, 3-5 participants: $2,455 pp, 2 participants: $2,700 pp.

    about provider
    I recently took part in a scientific expedition organized by Odno's team, and it was hands down the best expedition I've ever been on! Every aspect of the trip - including travel, accommodation, equipment and meals - was expertly managed by their company. The commitment is commendable, as they offer more than just typical tourist activities. The company is dedicated to promoting conservation, knowledge, and citizen science through unique experiences such as cultural tours, wildlife excursions and paleo- and geotourism. Their expertise and dedication make them an ideal choice for learning about this incredible place. I am eager to return to Mongolia and work with you guys again.
