Mongolia travel experience – reveal the beauty of Zavkhan province

The word Mongolia often stirs up an image of horses and wide steppe to many – well, true to some extent as the Mongols have more than 3 million horses and the country is the 19th largest country by territory. However, Mongolia is a lot more than that – globetrotters are mesmerised by the diverse natural and cultural wonders that Mongolia has to offer. This experiential journey will take you to through best of Zavkhan province – rightly, a hidden gem in the western part of Mongolia, as well as the essential sights and cultural performances in/around capital city Ulaanbaatar.

Stretched for 82500 sq.km, the characteristics of Zavkhan landscape is a striking combination of snowcapped Khangai Mountains, lush green forest, crystal clear lakes and rivers (rich in fish), open steppe and even sand dunes at some parts. Also there are plentiful natural hot springs, which are believed to cure various diseases. This journey will guide you to amazing Khar Lake – a stunning freshwater lake with beautiful sandy shores, where you will spend a few days exploring the nearby natural wonders of Senjit Khad, Mongol Els sand dunes and Naryn River that flows from sand dunes. Soft adventure activities such as horseback riding, fishing and hiking are easily available. Also at nights you can enjoy star gazing at its’ best. You will lodge at the comfortable mobile camp set up by Premium Travel Mongolia, and will enjoy delicious food (including fresh fish from the Lake!) cooked by our skilled tour chef. And make sure you prepare your camera and batteries well as Zavkhan and the Lake Khar area are a super photogenic!

This remote province is home to about 70 thousand people, 60% of whom are nomadic herders whose lifestyle has not been changed a lot since the days of Genghis Khan. You might have heard many stories of travellers being dazed by the sincere hospitality of the nomads. However, if you look deeper into their spirit, you will witness how strong, stern nomadic men can be moved to tears by their race horses rushing to a finish line. Their lifestyle, religion and philosophy are shaped by the Mother Nature to a great degree; and nomadic customs, music, literature and costumes have been passed through centuries. And in this hectic 21st century only Mongolian nomads welcome strangers with unlocked doors. There will be plenty of occasions you will meet real nomadic people and enjoy their heartwarming hospitality during the journey.

Premium Travel Mongolia tour guides are knowledgeable, experienced, and are happy to be the ambassadors of their country. Plus, travelling extensively in remote Mongolia and discovering the wonders doesn’t mean rough travel conditions. We utilize comfortable 4×4 vehicles with AC, clean and comfy mobile Ger camps to complete your wonderful Mongolia experience with us.
