Our adventure in Mongolia provides thirteen days of riding plus sightseeing in Ulaan Baatar and Kharkhorin, the ancient capital of Genghis Khan. We will ride through beautiful scenery; forests, rivers, and mountains. We'll cover about 20 miles per day with plenty of time to visit the many local herders in their gers along the way. Each night we meet our support truck at a new campsite.

Day 2: Meet horses and wranglers. On the horseback trek, we cover approximately 20 miles per day and meet our support vehicle each night at a new campsite.
