I got to visit Ulgii for a short trip in July. Our group was picked up from the airport right on time by Nurbol and his driver. He took us aroung the center of Ulgii and the next day we headed to eagle hunter Jenisbek's family in Saksai village. We had a full day of good activities, talking to the host family, sharing a local dish and of course, taking photos with the eagle. Nurbol was knowledgeable, kind and understanding since our group included three little kids. We had an amazing time in Olgii thanks to Nurbol! Thanks again.

Nurbol provided a great logistic support during our ski mountaineering trip in Tavan Bogd and Tsambaragav. Nurbol and his team arranged the transport with very good vans, the food with an absolutely amazing cook and they helped us in exploring their beautiful country when the conditions for skiing were not good. Our experience with them was very positive and we do recommend them.

We went ski touring with some friends in the Altai during the three first weeks of April with Nurbol. Nurbol picked us up at the small airport of Olgiy with a driver. After buying supplies at the market of Olgiy, we started our journey to the inaccessible but beautiful Altai Mountains.

It took about 8 hours of driving to get from Olgiy to the entrance of the Tavan Bogd National Park. The road is bumpy and sinuous but the driver was very competent and the landscapes are beautiful. Nurbol also puts on some Mongolian music and has always some good jokes to tell so the ride seemed very short.

When we arrived at Tavan Bogd National Park, we just had the time to pitch the yourte before night fell. Nurbol had brought some meet and a bottle of vodka with him so we had the pleasure to eat and drink together with the local breeder who had helped us with the yourte.

Nurbol and his driver then went back to Olgiy while we began exploring the Altai Mountains. We spent two weeks alone, just two friends in the vastness of the Mongalian Altai. We spent our days exploring the mountains around the yourthe and we made it to the top of a few summits. We spent the evenings in our cozy yourthe cooking and reading books.

After two weeks we were joined by 3 other friends who were also brought from Olgiy by Nurbol and his driver. With the help of Nurbol and a local guide we then set up a second yourte higher in the moutains to reach higher summits. Thanks to this advanced camp we made it to some great summits as the Malchin Peak.

After 1 week in the second gear, I went down to the valley and I was brought back to Olgiy by Nurbol's driver. 1 of my friends came back with me while the three others stayed for one more week.

Nurbol's organisation was great along the whole trip. He was on time for every traject to and from Olgiy and provided us with all the necessary stuff for our stay in the mountains. As said above, Nurbol is always very friendly and polite, and his has very good contacts with the locals. I must however indicate that we were completely autonomous for our ski expeditions. Nurbol took the trajects and the accomodation in charge but we used no guide for our expeditions in the Altai.

It was a great and beautiful trip in what I consider as of one the most beautiful and remote places on earth. Nurbol made this trip possible and I'm very grateful to him for his great organization.

I recently completed a four-day tour organized by Nurbol which included numerous activities surrounding the Eagle Festival which is held in the Kazakh region of Mongolia each year. He made all the local arrangements for me and ensured I was pickup at the airport and transferred to my hotel. From there I was introduced to my driver with a large SUV and to my personal guide Ms. Asyeli who was very charming, knowledgeable and spoke English very well, as well as Kazakh and Mongolian. I spent the first two days traveling in the region, cross country and met with two nomad families who practice eagle hunting and will be attending the festival. This included the traditional meal with family which was prepared by my guide. This was followed by an excellent demonstration on the art of Eagle hunting was also provided by our host, and I was able to capture the moment on film. We also had the privilege to track Argyle sheep up a mountain in difficult terrain with the assistance of a local herdsman who was recruited on the moment and knew where a few of them were located after I expressed the sudden desire to see some.

I spent two days at the festival, wondering about taking pictures and meeting with other tourist and talking to participants with the ever attentive Ms. Asyeli beside me who ensure I was well-taken care. Nurbol also arranged for meals to be prepared and served when I was ready, in order not to distract from the activities going on.

There is much to be said for having your own personal team. An avid photographer I was able to ask the driver to stop as often as I wished to take pictures or to change direction in order to capture the right moment. He was always accommodating and eventually able to anticipate my desire based on my reaction. With both Ms. Asyeli and Nurbol been local individuals I was provided with insight information and guidance that I would not have had otherwise. They were also able to juggle the schedule and make last minute changes based on circumstances.

Travelers must always come prepared and be ready to expect the unexpected, especially in a country so vast as Mongolia where the climate can cause havoc on the best of intentions. I decided to hire local and was well rewarded with excellent service, care, and consideration. I recommend the team to anyone looking for that personal service.

This is for the more adventurous spirit and possibly unlike anything else. We stayed in a ger and the temperatures were in the 20's during the night. The people of NW Mongolia are nomadic ,friendly and welcome your participation in the event. The roads are bumpy and dirt but this does not present a problem to viewing the Eagle hunters , on their horse, as the compete for the honor of winning. The prize is bragging rights and maybe an extra portion of fermented mares milk. Our group had excellent food and met many of the hunters while experiencing the ability to hold an Eagle on your arm. Layers of clothing an the ability to accept the unexpected will help you enjoy the introduction to the Kazak people of Mongolia .It does take time to travel to the festival so go with a highly rated tour company.

Great adventure in Mongolia! It wouldn't have been possible without Indy Guide & Nurbol's assistance. I made a post on Indy Guide asking for a very specific trip to be arranged. This was to be a multi-day trip on horseback following an eagle hunter through the Altai mountains. My request was for a minimalist set-up where just a few horses, eagle, and hunter would be provided. We brought our own camping gear, food, and water which we attached to an extra horse.

Nurbol contacted me and was very detailed in what he could provide. He offered a reasonable price compared to what other tour operators asked. He was responsive and knowledgeable in all communications. Most importantly, he found the perfect eagle hunter for us, Esen.

Nurbol speaks english very well and I would recommend anyone travelling to western Mongolia contact him. I would be confident in Nurbol's ability to assist with arranging any itinerary. If planning to visit an Eagle Hunter or ride across the Altai mountains, be sure to request Esen.
