True wilderness trekking going out into the wild blue Mongolian yonder! You will trek across pristine rivers, stunning mountain ranges, through horse-high brush and along miles and miles of the famed Mongolian Steppe as this trek takes you to a time out of mind.
For days you will see only untouched wilderness, winding rivers, rolling hills, gentle ambles through pristine forests and stunning rock formations that jump out and touch you. Your destination, Khaggii Khar Lake is a small oasis surrounded by those rarest of rare things in Mongolia – forests. You will spend one full day there relaxing, hiking, fishing or just enjoying being away from it all before turning back and experiencing the stunning beauty of Terelj Gorkhi National park.
Terrain includes river crossings, bog, brush riding, and forest riding – including sometimes steep terrain both up and down and, of course, miles of Mongolian steppe. Most days will include 5-6 hours of riding with ample time for rest breaks, photography or just relaxing. Evenings will include loads of star gazing, chatting around the fire (when we can build one) enjoying a cup of tea or a glass or red if you prefer.
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.
As always, Horse Trek Mongolia will donate 20% of the tariff from this trek to support the children of the Children of the Peak Sanctuary Kindergarten. See www.veloofoundation.com for details
