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.

Day 1. We're off for the luxuriant nature of the Terelj !

Ulan Bator - Terelj Village
  • Journey to Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, a real gorgeous green setting at the gates of the capital : rocky formations sculpted by erosion, mountains tree-filled with pines, plains scattered with wild flowers and edelweiss, rivers and lakes.

Day 2. We're off for 5 days of a nomadic life !

Terelj Village - Terelj national park
  • We start our hike along the Terelj River in a valley where many breeders live and where yaks graze in total freedom. We pass the first pass of Sandrakh before reaching Mounts Sambartai Khoshuu. Once arrived on the place of our camp, we unload the yaks and put up our yurts with the breeders. We'll spend the night in the yurt like real nomads.

  • We go on in our nomadisation in a remote part of the park where nature will be your one and only companion. About noon, we reach the small Gunj Monastery. Partly destroyed during the Soviet purges, the vestiges of the Monastery of the Princess Gunj are nestled in the heart of the forest of larches. In the afternoon, we reach the Baruunbayan River where we set up our yurts camp.

  • Last day hiking before joining our local guides and their families. We walk along the Tuul River in an area where nomads camps are more and more numerous. In the early afternoon, we join our hosts and spend a few moments with them.
  • Back to Ulan-Bator. Last herds of wild horses crossing the road outside our dumbfounded eyes, last yurts smoking far away, the steppe will be with us until the last moment. Arrival in town and settling in at your hotel, where you can rest a few moments.
  • Rest of the day free. With our guide, you can go shopping in the centre of the city.
  • At 18 o' clock, Mongolian traditional show at Tumen Ekh: folkloric dances, contortion, and of course khoomi, the overtone singing.
