Schönheiten der Ostmongolei

In May 2003 an exploration team from Nomads visited the far east of the country and made a discovery: a wealth of thrilling landscapes, untouched nature, wildlife and the essence of nomadic hospitality. It is more than a pleasure to share our discoveries with travelers and adventurers!

This new Nomad's trip is in one of the least explored parts of Mongolia, namely that of the eastern steppe. In this vast and extensive area you will camp next to lakes and rivers and we will immerse you into the recent and ancient history of the area.

The highlight of the trip is the hidden valley called “Sleeping Beauty” , which is all but inaccessible due to its remoteness. Our team members that explored the area were probably amongst only a few visitors that the valley has seen in the last few decades.

A rich spectrum of wildlife ranging from steppe gazelles and wolves to otters and elk expect you. This is where you can observe thousands of gazelles crossing your way or hundreds of cranes and other rare birds flocking before they migrate to warmer places. Local rangers will guide you to spot elks and otters.

A traditional homeland of nomadic tribes since Hun times, the area has preserved the best traditions of nomadic hospitality already forgotten in Central Mongolian areas which is a striking surprise even to the Mongols themselves. You will learn about the lifestyles of the local people by riding horses together, visiting their homes as well as learning about how the local communities are striving to preserve their traditions in this new era and environment. Bee farmers, and herb planters will introduce you to their new challenges.
