AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE - AT YOUR OWN PACE - THE WONDERFUL LANDSCAPES OF THE WEST

THE SOUL-FILLING TREKKING TO WESTERN MONGOLIA'S HIDDEN GEMS

Western Mongolia brings awesome hiking and trekking places and opportunities to nature lovers. Its diverse wilderness runs along the Khangai and the Altai Mountain range. Between the north-western end of the Khangai Mountains and the western summit of the Altai Mountains, it passes through the Great Mongol Sands National Park and Kharhiraa-Turgen Mountain National Park. The vast majority of the trek is situated within the designated wilderness and lies almost entirely at or above 5,000-8,000 feet (1,500-2,400 m) in elevation. The trek has been described as Mongolia's most undiscovered trail and one of the most remote places in the country.

With some of the most off-the-beaten-track routes, you can choose from a wide range of locations to challenge yourself and bring you closer to the culture and wilderness of Mongolia. Our responsible travel guidelines have been developed to ensure our treks have a minimal impact on the culture, environment, and community, saving the beauty of this nature for future generations and travelers. Whether it’s camping in semi-permanent campsites to discourage logging in western Mongolian high mountains, sand dunes, to hiring local guides, porters, cooks, and pack horses or camels, your presence on one of our trekking trips means that you are helping the local community to grow and to develop itself both economically and environmentally.

TREKKING THROUGH THE ICONIC YAK VALLEY AMONG HERDERS

Introducing the beautiful and peaceful landscape of the iconic yak valley, known for its large number of yak herd in the country, part of the sum of Tsakhir, of the Arkhangai province around 700km West from the capital city. Learn more about the destination below!

THE RIVER VALLEY TREK

This green little gem is sitting right on the northern slopes of the Tarvagatai Mountains and provides a really peaceful feeling. It is actually one of the greenest places of the whole country, featuring beautiful larch forests, rivers, mountains around, and small valleys hosting nomadic life. It is possible to spot wildlife there, birds, but of course to immerse yourself into pastoral nomadism with herders and many of their animals around with horses and yaks especially. Because of its amazing natural values, it is one of the best places to ride horses. The terrain not being flat everywhere provides some interesting challenges such as crossing rivers, passing through forests, and accessing higher grounds with an amazing view over the entire region. This is a very rewarding place for many reasons. Learn more about the destination below!

TREK AMONG THE PEACEFUL LAKES AND HOLY MOUNTAINS

From mountainous peaks to the holy lakes and cascading waterfalls, it’s an inspiring way to get deep into the remote backcountry. The entire treks are filled with incredible scenery and potentially quite a few wildlife spotting occasions. This is sightseeing and adventure full of great moments that will provide just enough relaxation in between. You will get off the beaten path to discover hidden areas, observe wildlife, be amazed by the surrounding glaciers, tranquil lakes, mountain rivers, misty waterfalls, and an amazing cliff called by the locals "Deer Jumping Canyon". High passes with great views, magical lakes, rocky gorges, waterfalls, remote valleys: this trek has everything. Learn more about the trekking destination below!

GREAT MONGOL SANDS NATIONAL PARK TREK

The timeless spirit of Mongolia can be found amid its rolling sand dunes and endless deserts. If you always dreamed to experience great sand dunes, this journey will push you over the edge. We have crafted here the perfect cocktail of western Mongolia's most dramatic sights. Wander through the sand dunes, dine together with a wonderful view over the stretching desert, and sleep at the sand camp. Trekking here leads you through the unique rock formations and across the enormous sand dunes of the Great Mongol Sands National Park. The enormous sand dunes of western Mongolia are an enthralling destination of breathtaking landscapes—the desert, the mountains, the sand rivers, immense dunes, lakes —and the fascinating lifestyle of the western Mongolian nomads. Dedicating days to experience the western Mongolia desert allows you to truly switch off from civilization. Emulate the nomadic existence. Lose yourself into the rhythm of the trek, and what we consider to be the luxuries of desert life: establishing wild camps, dining on the dune, enjoying sunset & cocktail parties, the night skies, and the natural wonders of the desert. Learn more about the destination below!

THE ROCKIES OF WESTERN GOBI

The Western Rockies and its 108 Caves represent the jewel of the Great Mongol Sands National Park. Rising high above the endless desert, Western Rockies looks almost ethereal and otherworldly. Described as a “floating Gobi Rockies”, it is without a doubt one of the most beautiful mountains of the Gobi. The western Rockies trek offers a plethora of options based on your experience. The 400m cliff walls are scale-able only by experienced mountaineers. The good news for hikers is that there is also a ramp-like trail that leads to the top. It leads you past stunning natural rock Bowles, huge Gate Rock, and undiscovered large caves. Learn more about the destination below!

TREKKING INTO KHARKHIRAA MOUNTAINS
