Reiten: auf den Pfaden der Nomaden im Zavkhan Aimag

This is an exciting ride in the heart of the Khangai mountains, an area that is renowned for its abundance of wildlife and generosity of the nature. For the people of the Khangai, generosity is natural and is never questioned. A visitor is just asked to bring his vessels and have them filled up with mare's milk, the most adorned beverage of the Mongols.

Riding through mountains and green forested valleys you will visit pristine lakes, freshwater lakes, and experience this immensely rich and beautiful country.

Day 1

Ulaanbaatar- Tosontsengel- Ider River
After a relaxed morning at the hotel you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Tosontsengel. Your guide will accompany you on board and after an hour and a half you will land in this jewel of the Khangai Mountains. On arrival we will meet the rest of our staff and drive to Ider river via Mergen Pass. The Ider River is fed by the Khangai mountain range. We will set our tented camp on the bank of the Ider river.

Day 2

Ider river- Ider village- Darkhan Uul village
After breakfast we head to Darkhan Uul village via Ider village. Our campsite will be on the banks of Ider river next to the Darkhan Uul village. We will reach the bank of the Ider river early in the afternoon. Our horsemen will be awaiting our arrival at the campsite. Dinner and tented camp overnight.

Day 3

Today will be dedicated to familiarizing yourselves with the horses and tack. We will have meals and overnight in our previous camp. Those not wanting to ride the the whole day can just relax.

Day 4

Today we will start our linear horse ride. We will start up the Ider valley and reach the foothills of Rashaanii Pass. Our vehicles will go ahead and set up our camp, so by the time we reach there, the showers will be set up and dinner will be ready. Total riding is 25km.

Day 5

Today we will continue riding, and we will pass by the Otgon Hot Spring Resort and descend into the Bogd River Valley, a wide lush valley with larch forests on the higher slopes, until we reach the place called Uujim Corner. If you wish you can take a hot bath in the spring. Later we will continue until we reach a pass called “Hot Spring Pass" and we will camp overlooking Mount Baga Bogd.

Day 6

We will ride further south to reach Lake Nart at the lower reaches of Mount Otgontenger. The lake lays at the northern edge of the Dayan Mountain Range, and it is a pretty spot surrounded by larch forest. From here we can see the majestic and snowy dome of Mount Otgontenger. We will stay overnight next to the lake.

Day 7

Riding further we will visit nomadic families scattered around Lake Blue. Nomadic hospitality is a crucial factor in surviving this harsh and remote area, and hosts will offer ‘airag’ or fermented mare's milk, the beverage adorned by all Mongols for its nutritious and healthy qualities. After that we ride upstream along the Bogd River and make our camp at the northern foothills of Mount Otgontenger. It is 4031m high and is considered to be a sacred mountain by the local people. It really is the acme of the Khangai Mountain Range.

Day 8
