Itinerary

Travel to Mongolia and visit Ulaanbaatar. Locals in traditional dress mingling with workers in business suits; stark Soviet architecture alongside traditional Asiatic museums, palaces and monasteries - welcome to Mongolia!
Drive through open grasslands to a remote Manchu-style monastery dedicated to the great Buddhist and sculptor Zanabazar. Spend the night in a ger camp.
Relax in the stunning surroundings of the Selenge River. Nature lovers can hike to the volcanic crater at Uran Uul (Pot Mountain). Experience local hospitality during a homestay with a Mongolian family. Learn to make traditional delicacies and get an insight into everyday nomadic life.
Surrounded by rolling grasslands, fir forests and wildflower meadows, Lake Khovsgol is one of Mongolia's most picturesque destinations. Take an optional horse trek, visit reindeer herders or take a boat trip on the lake.
Set in picturesque mountains, the Great White Lake is a beautiful place to walk or just sit and watch the native birds. Gaze over the surreal landscape atop volcanic peaks and end the day with a Mongolian barbecue.
Visit a museum featuring traditional Mongolian costumes, weaponry and art. Enjoy the remote, untouched beauty of the region and soak in the Tsenkher hot springs.
Explore the remains of Karakorum, the capital city built by Genghis Khan in the 13th century. Visit the impressive Erdene Zuu Khiid, birthplace of Mongolian Buddhism. Head into a shifting landscape of sand dunes on a camel ride through the desert in Khogno Khan.
Return to the capital via roadside shrines and ger communities. A cultural performance is the perfect way to conclude this adventure through wild Mongolia.
