Introduction - Northern Exposure
Travel to one of the last truly wild corners of the planet on this two-week tour covering the highlights of north and central Mongolia. Your trip starts with three days exploring the capital’s monasteries and museums, with a foray out to the colossal Genghis Khan statue, before commencing your journey across the grasslands. First halt is at one of the country’s most important, remote and beautiful Buddhist monasteries, where you’ll spend your first night in a Mongolian ger.
Yurt camps, located near hilltop shrines, waterfalls and hot springs, provide bases for the remainder of the tour as you travel to and from Lake Khovsgol, where you’ll have a rare opportunity to visit an encampment of Tsaatan reindeer herders – an experience of a lifetime. Horse lovers will also enjoy a visit to the delightful Khustain Nuruu sanctuary where some of world’s last pure wild horses survive. After a final night back in Ulaanbaatar, you catch your return flight to the UK.
You travel independently on a departure date of your choice. Internal travel is by air-conditioned car.
