Question: Long distance Trekking through villages in Mongolia

Hi,

I'm looking for a long distance trail (of several weeks) in Mongolia that goes through villages, where I could meet the locals and get supply (I'll carry my camping gear with me).

Could you please suggest a place to start?

I want to start in May, so it'd be too early for the mountains, but I am keen to do a continuous long distance villages-trek of several weeks.

Hi Ching, Thank you. I'll of course buy a map of the area I will trek. Could you be please more specific and tell please about a good starting point of a long distance hike that will pass through nomads and water sources? Thank you very much.

Firstly I suggest you get a good fully detailed map of Mongolia and if you are trekking, Central part is more suitable for example Arkhangai, Uvurkhangai, Bulgan province.
