Very few people will get to experience the wonders of Mongolia. One of the world’s last wildernesses, the landlocked country is renowned for its nomadic culture that exists within its vast and rugged landscapes. From the mesmerising Gobi Desert to the steppe of the central heartland, the eagle hunters of the Altai to the camel herders of Bayangobi, Mongolia offers remarkable adventures and immersive experiences.
Possibilities are endless once you depart from the capital of Ulaanbaatar. One adventure is to set out across desert landscapes to Altai Tavan Bogd National Park. Experience homestays with locals, enjoy traditional feasts and take part in the remarkable tradition that is eagle hunting, experiencing the thrill of the hunt alongside the Kazakh nomads and their magnificent golden eagles.
Another adventure awaits in Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area, where you can trek along the Tuul River, camp in luxurious yurts and stay with local herding families. Elsen Tasarkhai is where you’ll find camel herders riding along the dunes at sunset on these magnificent creatures. Venturing to the nearby foothills of Khugno Khaan Mountains on horseback is one of many other adventures that await on the wild expanses of Mongolia.
