This tour is designed for those seeking greater comfort compared to other rides in Mongolia. Instead of small tents and sleeping bags, you'll stay in yurts with comfortable beds, proper bed linen, and heating from a stove. Luggage will be carried by yaks as the camp moves every other night. The journey covers the southern outskirts of Khan Khentii and the picturesque Gorkhi Terelj National Park.

The tour begins with a brief drive to the Khan Khentii Taiga zone. Upon arrival at the Upper Tuul River, guides and locals will have already set up your yurts. After a day's ride in the area (staying two nights), the journey continues without vehicular support, venturing into wild terrain alongside local nomads and a caravan of yaks carrying baggage and camp equipment. Each location will be enjoyed for two nights, offering diverse landscapes including mountains, steppes, forests and leafy woods, often camping near a river.

Private trip supplement: 2/3 people + 600$ per trip. 4+ 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.
