Amazing tour to Western Mongolia & Altai Mountains, 9 days

Amazing tour to Altai Tavan Bogd National Park

I focus on real experiences, if you book with us you will have the adventure of your life. I worked for 5 years with most of the travel companies in Ulgii and realized everyone offers the same tours, very touristic, so I decided I want to bring something different. With us, you will experience the real nomadic life, not just a touristic visit where you smile for a profile picture. With us you will have so many for an entire year.  

This expedition is open for all ages. I want you to enjoy Mongolia and have an unforgettable time.   

On this expedition we offer full encounter with nature and the nomadic life, which includes eagle hunting, horse riding, learn the nomad ways, live the experience at its best. Also we can adjust the expedition to any needs we are very flexible (so don't hesitate to contact us for any question or request).  You may don't know but being a vegetarian isn't easy in Mongolia, we have many experience with all nationalities and different age groups.  We're new to this platform without many reviews, but we are not new in the business.
