Enjoy horse & camel riding in Mongolia with nomadic culture experience
Fond of the outdoors? You will fall head over heels for Mongolia. What’s not to adore about a country that’s so remote, so vast, and so naturally beautiful? How can you not love the horse trekking, the hiking, the camel riding and the camping under the starry skies? You just can’t resist but love Mongolia and the soft adventures in this tour! Discovering the natural and cultural highlights in the Central Mongolia, you will enjoy a 2-day horse trekking from the Lake Ugii to the ancient capital Karakorum (where you will visit the legendary Erdene Zuu monastery and many more!), and a half day hiking in the Khugnu Khan Mountains and a sunset camel ride at the Elsen Tasarkhai sand dunes.
Besides the nature and adventure, Mongolia’s the home of hearty nomadic people, whose lifestyle has not been changed a lot since the days of Genghis Khan and his empire. Their lifestyle, religion and philosophy are shaped by the Mother Nature to a great degree; and nomadic lifestyle, music, literature and costumes have been passed through centuries. And in this hectic 21st century only Mongolian nomads welcome strangers with unlocked doors. You will visit a nomadic family or two to enjoy their heartwarming hospitality during the journey.
