Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Contemplate the Soviet architecture and influence in Ulaanbaatar, explore the ruins of remote monasteries, share a ger with a nomadic family, soak in the Tsenkher Hot Springs, visit Mongolia's ancient capital, see the wild horses in Khustai National Park

Long after the reign of Genghis Khan, nomadism remains a way of life in modern Mongolia. But with so much to see and do here, it's only natural that people would want to move about and explore. This adventure taps into the nomadic lifestyle embraced by almost 40% of the local population, travelling through ruggedly beautiful gorges and sandstone mountains in search of golden eagles, desert gazelles, and the Mongolian horse. And when you're not moving, you'll experience local customs up close, exploring rural villages and sleeping in traditional ger tents.

Day 1: Ulaanbaatar
Arrive at any time.

My fifth trip with G Adventures and this is the third in which the group leader was too laid back, hardly spoke to give info on the country or places visited, rarely gave a time frame for stops or itinerary. The drives were too long for the value of the attractions. This company really gives you the minimum. It was still a great experience and I enjoyed some wonderful places but I probably should look for a different operator next time.
