- Travel in the footsteps of Genghis Khan
- Epic adventure on horseback
- Stay in a traditional Mongolian ger
Step into adventure with this incredible two-week journey on horseback through Mongolia’s Sacred Mountains. The Khan Khentii range played an important role in the life of the legendary Genghis Khan, whose empire stretched across much of the Asian world by the 13th century. This full-service tour begins on meeting your guide at Ulaanbaatar Airport, before some city sightseeing in the Mongolian capital. Then you’ll transfer to a wilderness camp to become acquainted with the hardy steed that will be your trusty companion, and the friendly wranglers charged with looking after them. Before long, it’s off into the vast and stunningly beautiful mountain terrain for a truly epic quest.
You’ll see ancient monasteries, meet nomadic families, and learn about the life of this all-conquering soldier. The tour passes the lake where he was crowned as Khan of the Mongols, and the lake at the side of which the coronation feast was held. Traverse breathtaking landscapes, swim and fish in rivers, and eat delicious traditional Mongolian fare prepared by a chef that accompanies the tour throughout. You’ll sleep in tents and gers, hike and kayak, and essentially get away from it all in this incredible place. Possibly the ultimate gift experience in Mongolia, this is suited to the adventurous of spirit, and reasonably experienced riders only.
