See the most iconic scenes; Genghis Khan Statue, Gorkhi-Terelj national park, Turtle Rock, and spend a day as nomad in a renowned Ger

One of the top experiences in Mongolia is staying in a ger, especially where the Mongol empire's capital established. If you love the outdoors, you will fall head over heels for Mongolia. Everyone does. Hiking, horse, camping, cow carriage, trekking, river crossing, nomadic activities, and everything you will need to experience will be included in this tour.

Mongolia in 3 days

See the most iconic scenes; Khustai Nuruu, Elsen Tasarkhai, Erdene Zuu, Kharkhorum (the ancient capital city of Mongol Empire)

In a country the size of western Europe, half of Mongolia's population still pursue their ancient nomadic traditions, scattered like seeds across the landscape. What is not to love about a country that is so vast, remote, and naturally beautiful? Centuries of nomadic living have given Mongolians a natural bond with travelers. There is so much more to Mongolia than Chinggis Khaan (Genghis Khan)!

Khongor sand dunes, Flaming Cliffs, Gobi Waterfall, Dragon Grave, Forest of Giant Rocks

Golden sand will not remember your steps once the wind blows, the footprint of the Gobi desert will stay in your heart forever. Dinosaur fossils from millions of year ago still remain here. Desert pants, dry but capable of coming to life in an overnight rain.

Horse riding in a few Days

"I would love to ride through vast areas of steppes and see the distant mountains"

Horses are not just a daily means of transportation, but are true companions during long journeys and their milk is used to make drinks. Half-wild creatures that are capable of feeding themselves in the wild have created a new whole culture of steppe nomads.

Around Mongolia

EVERY TOUR IS UNIQUE

Perhaps you have something in mind that we haven't done before! That happens now and then, so please do not hesitate to ask us. You wouldn't believe some of the requests that we receive. For example, visiting the worst neighborhoods in "the city", helicopter ride through sand dune, visit  deep underground mining sites, hunting with golden eagle, and a private horse polo match! We still have few more. If so, let us know and we will create a unique experience just for you.
