This horseback expedition provides intimate encounters with Mongolian horsemen, a nomadic people who have successfully maintained their traditional way of life amidst modern influences. Mongolia stands out as the only nation where horses play such a vital role. The unique Mongolian horsemanship sets it apart from other regions.

During this journey, we will ride two diverse landscapes on horseback: starting from the vast open steppe, the summer grazing grounds of Mongolian herders, we will gradually transition into the picturesque forest steppe and ascend into the southern taiga region of the Khan Khentii Area. You will witness a variety of terrains including steppes, wooded meadows, forests and mountains, camping beside rivers. This expedition will be a true 'Nomadic Journey', without vehicle support, through rugged terrain. 

Private trip supplement: 2-4 people + 500$ per trip. 5+ members no charge.

For 30 years we are a leading tour operator in Mongolia, focused on low impact sustainable tourism. We work with numerous community groups/enterprises and conservation initiatives around Mongolia. Our philosophy is to offer a slow paced low impact travel experience, visiting different places on a horse back, a yak carts, and a camel carts rather than traveling long difficult journeys on a vehicle. In all of our destinations, each of our camps guarantees a 360 degree unbroken view of the Mongolian landscape.
