The Gobi Desert, heart of the silk road and siren song for adventurers, scientists and historians for millenia is the showcase for this wilderness trek. It is the Gobi that secured Chinggis’ Khan’s victories to the South and enabled his march toward world domination. Passable only by Mongols for generations, it is home to some of the hardiest animals and people on the planet and the history of the development of societies is etched gently in its sand and rock covered landscape.
This trek begins in the hills and on the vast grasslands bordering the northern edge of the Gobi Desert. Winding paths in the saddle crossing the grasslands and long nights under the clearest, most spectacular star-draped vistas on the planet make this a unique and one of a kind experience. Our ride gradually takes us from the hills, across the grasslands and into the north end of the Gobi Desert to Baga Gazariin Chuuluu, a magical, storied outcropping that has been home to Mongolians since the beginning of time.
We spend two nights and one full day exploring the rock and the historical and cultural secrets it holds with Victoria Wilson, accomplished archeologist specializing in Baga Gazariin Chuuluu on the history of Baga Gazariin Chuuluu and our associate guide on the trip. Truly breathtaking and inspiring the history, legend and ruins of this area are something beyond belief. The return ride will take us through more breathtaking scenery and along routes used for the silk road and Chinggis Khaan himself.
This wilderness adventure is suitable for all level of riders . We will spend 6-8 hours a day in the saddle.
Local city tours available as an add – on. Accommodation / food in Ulaanbaatar extra.
Please note that, as with all our treks, we will be proceeding into areas where medical coverage is sparse or non-existent and, in the event of an emergency your treatment may be delayed as a result. Mongolian horses are very forward moving and responsive and if your experience or ability is not up to managing them, for your own safety you will be put on a lead for some or all of the trek.
