Tumursukh
The director of Horidal Saridag Strictly Protected Area who will take you on the exclusive horse trekking trails used only by local rangers or hunters. Born in the adjacent Darhad valley and started as a local ranger in the park, there’s hardly anyone who knows the lake area and its surrounding ecosystem better than Tumursukh. He is also a licensed wolf-hunter, in the country where wolf hunting is still officially permitted in order to control the population to protect herders’ livestock. This never before granted access to the backdoors of the mountain is an epic journey dedicated for those who like adventure and thrill, while contributing to the cause of promoting these hard working individuals.

    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.
