Hiking
Nomadising in Khan Khentii

At the gate of Ulan Bator, is a sanctuary of greenery where nomads live in harmony with the nature.

With local breeders and their yaks, leave for a 5-day-hike in the remote parts of the Gorkhi Terelj National Park. We carry the yurts and beds that we'll set up each evening on the banks of the different rivers that flow among the steppes and valleys of the park. It's a unique experience of nomadising for the travellers who want to travel close to the luxuriant nature and breeders.
