Mountain Scenery and Trekking

Life in Mongolia has probably in many places retained its original character, among others thanks to the vastness of the country, and opens to Western travelers today an insight into a frugal but cozy life, far away from everyday hustle and bustle. The seemingly endless expanse of the Mountain scenery, in which the scree slopes are interspersed by lush wildflower valleys, and snowcapped peaks crown the juicy- green pastures, can be best discovered on foot, or on the back of the strong Mongolian horses - or on the back of camels.

To get out of the tent in the morning, to take a deep breath of the cool, clean air and to refresh oneself with crystal clear spring water enables an experience of nature with all our senses, the way it is only possible in these remote areas of the world. Whether you choose one of our proven itineraries, or would like to reach certain destinations, we are happy to put together your custom- made Mongolia journey!
