Western Mongolia Tour in 5 Days

   In this dramatic journey we will explore beautiful Western Mongolian Altai mountains & steppes, glaciers, golden eagle & hunters and visit to Mongolian, Kazakh and Tuvan nomads so you can learn nomadic way of life. In addition, western Mongolia is rich in archeological sites that vary from ancient petroglyphs to stone carvings from early Turkic invasion.

  Day 1, Early flight to Ulgii. Meet your our team and after lunch drive to Taban Bogd National park. Along the way, we will find numerous petroglyphs and Turkic stones. Bayan-Ulgii is rich in archaeological remains, as a reminder of the Bronze Age and the time of the Huns and Turkic invasions. Reach to Ger camp. Overnight in Kazakh or Mongolian ger. 

Day 2, TavanBogd massif (17 km ride up and down)

Today we will ride horse towards the Base Camp of Altai Tavan Bogd Mountains. Here we can see the glaciers and TavanBogd massif.
