Get to know Mongolia through visiting the beautiful National parks of Terelj & Khustai, a fine example of conservation and ecosystem preservation where the wild Takhi horse has been successfully re-introduced. Feel small (actually & figuratively!) next to the 40m high Equestrian Genghis Khan statue and enjoy an introduction into the history of this wonderful country. We will also explore the capital Ulaanbaatar to see its temples, traditional dancing and feast on delicious Mongolian food.
During the communist period in Kazakhstan, many Kazakhs fled to Mongolia and settled in Bayan-Ölgii Province, bringing with them their tradition of hunting with golden eagles. There are an estimated 250 eagle hunters in Bayan-Ölgii, which is located in the Altai Mountains of Western Mongolia. Their falconry custom involves hunting with golden eagles on horseback, primarily for red and corsac foxes during the cold winter months, when it is easier to see the gold-coloured foxes against the snow.
We will stay in ger camps and with a local family and take an amazing round trip adventure riding horses towards the Altai Tavan Bogd base camp amongst the National Park’s stupendous mountain peaks in this vast frontier.
