We, 2 girls, planed to travel Altai Mountains and booked a 6-day tour with Dauren. He also helped us check flight schedule and called us in the middle of the night before we fly to Ulgii. He's really nice.
He came to pick us once we arrived Ulgii airport. It's like meeting with a friend not the tour guide :) We didn't have any camping equipment, Dauren then prepared everything for us.
Days we spent on Altai Tavan Bogd National Park were unforgettable! We met Milky Way and Lunar Eclipse with Mars at the first night. The camera is a must!
We went for hiking to the Base Camp. Don't forget to bring sweater and waterproof shoes. At the Base Camp we could see many peaks including "Khuiten Peak" the highest peak of Mongolia.
The Khoton Lake that we swam. This place's really wide and more grassy than Base Camp, the mosquitoes and insects are everywhere with you. The mosquito repellent would be savior.
And the Eagle Hunter family camp that warmly welcomed us in their Ger. Be prepared to get stunning in true traditional culture and the kids!
These were all amazing. Just few people live in this western most area, no electricity, no internet, no phone signal. This's what it's called NATURE. Dauren's a professional and well-knowledge that always gave us details and information related everywhere we visited.
It was 5 of us (my friend and I, Dauren, a driver, a cook), it's like travelling with friends. The driver and the cook were not speaking English, but they wholeheartedly tried to communicate with us all time. The driver even sang traditional Kazakh songs for us.
After the descent from Altai Tavan Bogd, we had a chance to stay in Ger at Dauren's home. His team, his family, and he himself did make us feel at ease and comfortable. And again, it felt like home of a friend.
If you're seeking for a tour guide in Altai Tavan Bogd, I recommend this one.
