Greetings from rugged Altai. My name is Yerganat (Erka). I was born and raised in Ulgii, Western Mongolia.

Erka organized everything to its best, one highlight after the other.

We made fantastic experiences out in the nature together with wonderful people.

Great team, great organization. Contacted Erka for a 7 day trip in Altai due to fair price long experience and complete information we planned the itinerary.

During the trip also a driver Seicu with a UAZ and a cook Heicu came along with us. Well what to say perfect trip, even in the occasions where unexpected problems appeared Erka and his team reacted smoothly. Food was tasty and driving efficient. As result had pleasant and funny and relaxing holiday. Surely Recommended for a trip in Altai region.

My husband and I booked a weeklong tour with Erka and it was an outstanding experience. Erka was extremely responsive while we were planning the trip and customized an itinerary to meet our trip preferences.

The trip itself was absolutely incredible. Erka expertly guided us through the Naadam festival, an Altai Tavan Bogd NP trek, and an eagle hunter excursion- all tailored to what we wanted to do and see. The chef, Rina, on our hike was also outstanding. We did not know it was possible to eat so well in the mountains.

We would wholeheartedly recommend Trekmates and Erka to anyone looking for a remarkable trip in Western Mongolia!

Erka was proficient in English, punctual, professional and went above and beyond to make our trip successful. Leading up to the trip Erka answered all of our questions and concerns.

When faced with challenging weather conditions Erka took steps to ensure the trip would remain safe and comfortable but worked with us when we decided to proceed with the plans set in the itinerary.

Lastly, the dyamic duo of Hconti and Baku ( driver & cook) topped off the trip with efficient driving and delicioso local dishes.

It was a true adventure with a little bit of everything!

Bryan about listing 6 day Western Mongolia trip 2 years ago.

Erka was terrific! He went above and beyond to make sure things went smoothly. He put a trip together for my son and me whereby we had the authentic and unique experince we were looking for in Mongola. It was really helpful to us that Erka speaks fluent English. Eka arranged for a great cook/driver. Awesome food! We definitely plan to come back to Mongolia and have Eka as our guide again.
