Mongolia: Land of the Great Khan

Group Tour

Overview

On this epic trip across Mongolia we will experience the incredible diversity of scenery in which this country abounds. From the flaming cliffs at Bayanzag and the towering sand dunes at Khongoryn Els we’ll make for the remote western stretches of the Gobi before heading north, crossing mountain ranges and pine and lark forests, to finally reach the grasslands and wild horses for which the country is so rightly famed.

Wherever we travel we’ll be sure to encounter scattered families of Mongolians ...

ACCOMMODATION

As an overall ethos, wherever possible we aim to use characterful accommodation that enhances the overall travel experience, not just offers a bed for the night. This can obviously vary dramatically from country to country and from trip to trip.

On this particular trip we will be in hotels for three nights (in Ulaanbaatar & Bayankhongor) and in ger camps for the rest of the trip. Whilst staying in the ger camps you will sleep in a native Mongolian dwelling which Russians call yurts. Although not luxurious, they are clean, comfortable and cosy. Each ger is equipped with a bed, linen, stove and usually a small wash stand. Whilst most of the camps do have electricity 24/7 there are some that are run through a generator and electricity is only available during certain times.

Please note when staying at the Gobi Oasis Homestay there are a mix of gers and rooms so the group will be split between these and you maybe required to share a room with another guest depending on the size of the group.

The majority of the camps used on this tour will have a shared western-style flush loo and shower facilities in separate blocks. All meals eaten at the ger camps are served in a central ger restaurant.

Starting this morning, we’ll have an introductory meeting at the hotel before paying a visit to Gandan Monastery, the largest and most important in Mongolia.

Day 2 Ulaanbaatar – Mandalgobi

Today we start our journey down to the desert plains of the South - quite a long day to tonight's destination but only the last hour and a half is off-road. After leaving UB we'll drive to Baga Gazriin Chuluu for a gentle one hour hike to visit the Som Hoh Burd temple ruins. Afterwards, we will carry on our journey to Mandalgobi where we will be staying this evening. We will visit the Gobi Oasis tree-planting nursery, a conservation project that Byamba and her husband Radnaa have been running for the past 35 years. After a walk around the town we will head to Byamba's home where we will get the chance to learn how to make traditional Mongolian dumplings and sample our hard work for dinner.

Day 3 Mandalgobi - Tsagaan Suvarga

This morning we will head further south to the Omnogobi province to see the impressive rock formations of Tsagaan Suvarga. These beautiful formations can be explored on foot, and provide great photographic opportunities. After reaching our ger camp we can hike to see two famous caves known locally as the lie and stand caves, titled this way as some part of the caves are very small in which you need to crawl through and other large enough to stand up in. We will also get a chance to see the plethora of rock paintings here too. Tonight our ger camp will be near the formations.

After breakfast we drive down to Dalanzadgad, the provincial capital of Omnogobi. Here we can head into town to visit the interesting and recently renovated South Gobi Museum, stroll around the local market where we'll catch a glimpse of everyday life, and have lunch. This afternoon we then will get to spend some time with a nomadic family - step inside their ger and experience traditional local hospitality, including milk tea, before watching a demonstration of the nomadic skill of 'breaking in' horses. Later in the afternoon we head to Bayanzag for an exploratory walk around the spectacular sandstone formations, known as the Flaming Cliffs due to their deep red hue. Here we can soak up the sunset views before hopping back in the vehicles and back to our camp for dinner.

Day 5 Bayanzag - Yolyn Am - Moltsog Els - Bayanzag

It’s an early start today as we explore Yolyn Am Canyon, known as the Vulture's Gorge. This gorge is nestled deep within the hills and is a haven from the desert heat. Some areas of the valley are continually sheltered from the hot sun and house huge blocks of ice that gradually melt away during the summer. This is a perfect area for hiking and if you are lucky enough you might spot ibex and wild
sheep grazing high on the rocky walls of the mountains. This afternoon those who wish can relax at the camp but we can also offer an opportunity to visit the nearby village of Bulgan and the Moltsog Els sand dunes. Here you can have the chance to visit a local family of camel herders, before heading back to our camp for the night.

Day 6 Bayanzag - Khongoryn Els

We head to the west today to visit the Khavtsgait petroglyphs where we will take a walk through the rocky outcrop and search the surrounding area for ancient engravings. We then continue on through the desert and take a road that winds its way through the rocky mountains and past herds of grazing goats and camels.  This afternoon we can try some camel milk and take a ride along the dunes on a two-humped Bactrian camel. Around 30% of the world's camels are found in Mongolia, mostly in the Gobi Desert, and today we will get an insight into why these animals are so vital to nomadic communities. Our ger camp for this evening is located close to the impressive Khongoryn Els Dunes and an early evening climb to the top affords stunning views out across the rippling sands towards the desert beyond as the sun sets.

Today we have a long day of driving as we make our way towards Khermen Tsav. Arriving at Gurvan Tes soum (district) in time for lunch and to get some supplies, we then head for a hike amongst the rock formations and the Zulganai, a river that forms a beautiful oasis around it where forests of cane and willow grow. American scholar and palaeontologist Roy Chapman Andrews named this place "The End of the World." Khermen Tsav is known not only for its natural beauty but also by its treasure trove of dinosaur fossils; the first full skeleton of a dinosaur was found here and even nowadays, one can still find fossilized dinosaur bones and eggs lying on the surface of sandy land. The beauty of the cliffs is accentuated by small groves of native Gobi Saxaul tree. Before dinner we will also have the opportunity to visit the Narandaats rock formation which is located nearby.

Day 12 Orkhon Valley

Day 12 Orkhon Valley

The Orkhon Valley holds a very special place in both the hearts of the Mongolians and in the culture of the world. Inscribed in 1992 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, it is said to be the 'cradle of nomadic civilisation of the steppes' and held the seat of imperial power. It is easy to imagine such an empire unfolding beneath you as you stand on the edge overlooking the elbow of the Orkhon River. Hidden away on a hillside, surrounded by pine forests, lies the tiny and peaceful Tovkhon Khiid Monastery. After a leisurely morning we head north for a hike up to this stunning hilltop monastery which offers great views of the surrounding Arkhangai Hills as well as some interesting hilltop temple architecture. After lunch back at the camp, there will be a number of activities available, from more hiking to a spot of archery with our handmade bow and arrow set.

After breakfast we continue through the high passes to Kharkhorin, built on the site of Karakorum, briefly the capital of the Mongol Empire during the 16th century. Here we can visit the local market, the small but interesting museum, the Monument of the 3 Kings overlooking the Orkhon River, and the fertility stone on the edge of town. We shall also plan a visit to Purevnambar's family, who grow sea buckthorn and blueberries on a small commercial scale. We’ll have the chance to walk around their plantation and sample the superfood berry in one of its many formats - most common is to have it as a hot reviving beverage. Purev is also an artist renowned for Buddha painting, sculpture and felt making. Depending on timing, we'll plan for a traditional homecooked lunch at the family's homestead. In the afternoon, we visit the Erdenesiin Khuree Mongolian script and calligraphy centre and art exhibition gers before settling into our camp nearby.

Additional Details

Responsible Travel

With local people, culture and eco-systems in mind, responsible travel and sustainable tourism are at the core of Wild Frontiers. We believe that a successful trip not only delivers a unique and unsurpassable journey for our travellers but also benefits the people and places we visit.

When designing our tours, we actively seek out experiences that have a positive impact on the communities and precious environments we visit - from supporting social enterprises; resting our heads in rural homestays; and eating at locally owned restaurants; to helping fund conservation projects that protect wildlife and their habitats. 

Visit the Responsible Travel area of our website to read more, including the work of the Wild Frontiers Foundation through which we fundraise to aid community empowerment and education projects.

Reducing Single Use Plastic

We recognise the environmental issues and challenges around single-use plastic in many countries we visit and are actively working with our partners on the ground to reduce plastic waste on our tours and within the hotels and restaurants we visit. You can help to reduce your personal plastic waste by taking a refillable, filtered water bottle with you on your trip. Filtered water bottles can be refilled from water sources including your hotel room and restaurant taps, drinking fountains and refill stations. Every time you refill your bottle without the use of single-use plastic, you will be helping to reduce waste and protect the environment.

Visas

VISAS

Visas are necessary for many of the destinations we travel to and while we aim to provide you with the most up-to-date information, requirements frequently change and as such for the latest advice we advise that you check with the relevant embassies or contact a reputable visa agency. More details can be found here - https://www.wildfrontierstravel.com/visa

For this tour UK passport holders currently do not require a visa for Mongolia if staying for up to 30 days.
 
Passports should ideally be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the end of your tour.

There are no mandatory vaccination requirements for travellers to Mongolia. 

For all destinations, please make sure you are up-to-date with any standard vaccinations (e.g. MMR, Hepatitis A, Tetanus) as recommended by your local health care provider. 

For the most up-to-date information on all vaccination requirements and the most suitable anti-malarial tablets, we strongly suggest that you seek advice from your local travel centre or consult an official travel health website such as www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk or www.travelhealthpro.org.uk

Covid Testing: No mandatory testing is currently required for vaccinated or unvaccinated travellers.

If necessary further details will be sent out to you upon booking, however ensuring that correct and valid visas & vaccinations are obtained remains the sole responsibility of the client.

Extensions

If you have more time available, why not arrive early to adjust to a new time zone or just to get a feel for the country before your tour starts? Alternatively, you might choose to allow a few extra days after the tour to relax or to undertake some further exploration.

The choice is completely yours and we can usually arrange anything from simply additional accommodation and transfers to full tailor-made itineraries*. Please contact the office for more details and to discuss your requirements.

*Please note bespoke, tailor-made itineraries need to be a minimum of 7 days and we can only offer them in countries where we have a tailor-made expert

Terelj, Genghis Khan statue & Gun Galut

Terelj, Genghis Khan statue & Gun Galut

Only a few hours to the east of the capital you’ll find the ever popular Terelj National Park with its stunning scenery, the world’s largest statue of Genghis Khan and the Gun Galut Nature Reserve which is great for walking and kayaking. Allow 3-4 days.

Governmental Travel Advice

Many governments issue advice which highlights potential hazards their citizens might experience when travelling abroad. We strongly suggest you refer to your country’s particular advisory site before booking and contact us if you have any queries or concerns. Click to follow links to the advice of the British Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) or the US State Department.

Non-UK citizens should consult the travel advice of their respective governments.

Key Information

CLIMATE

Although it boasts over 260 sunny days a year and is known as the "Land of the Blue Sky", Mongolia's climate is extreme with fierce summers and bitterly cold winters. Late May through to August is typically a good time for travelling with cooler temperatures and occasionally rain, which fills the rivers and brings fresh grass to the steppes.

IS THIS TRIP FOR ME?

It may sound obvious but Wild Frontiers tours are not always for everyone and it is important to us that the tour you choose is the most suitable. All our tours have a fitness rating as a guideline but you should check the day-by-day itinerary carefully. In certain instances we may ask you to complete a travel questionnaire before confirming your booking in order to ensure your suitability. Should you have any concerns about your ability to partake in any aspect of the tour then please contact the office.

KEY ASPECTS TO CONSIDER

Anyone in a reasonable state of health, with an open mind and a sense of adventure should be perfectly able to cope with this tour, as all the walks are optional. 

There are some long drives to be taken but that is part of the Mongolian experience, and there will always be time for walks, photos and local encounters. Some of the areas visited are remote and see few foreign visitors so be prepared for the unexpected and be aware that changes to local conditions can dramatically affect envisaged timings and exact routings.

Please be advised that on this trip vegetarians can be catered for but the selection and variety may be very limited, therefore we recommend packing a few extra bits to fill the gaps!

THE NATURE OF ADVENTURE TRAVEL

We feel that it’s worth pointing out that while we will always strive to stick as close to the stated itinerary as possible, it may be necessary from time to time to make changes to our itineraries or services (due to weather, political and religious influences etc.) and this can happen with little or no notice. This unpredictability can be one of the most exciting aspects of adventure travel and for many of our clients often leads to unexpected highlights as the tour-leader necessarily adapts the tour to the changing conditions. However we are aware that this lack of assuredness may not suit everyone. As such, with the greatest respect, if you are someone who needs to know that everything will happen exactly as planned, we would kindly suggest that perhaps our tours are not for you. Adventure travel can be infectious and once you’ve caught the bug, it is likely to never leave you, but especially if this is your first such tour we would strongly urge you to give us a call if you have any concerns whatsoever about your suitability for this trip.

TRAVELLING SOLO AND SINGLE SUPPLEMENTS

As a company approximately 70% of our clients are solo travellers, so it’s very unlikely you’ll be alone!

Our prices are typically based on twin-share accommodation but single supplements are not compulsory for any Wild Frontiers tour. If you prefer not to pay a single supplement we’ll pair you with someone else of the same sex for you to share with throughout the trip. On this trip, if you do opt to pay for a single supplement then please note that it will cover you for all nights of the tour except at the Gobi Oasis Homestay.

Please note that paying a single supplement entitles you to lone occupancy of a single room. In many cases these rooms will be of the same size as a double/twin room, but in some cases they may be smaller.

INSURANCE

Insurance that provides cover for emergency repatriation in case of a medical emergency is compulsory for all tours. You should be aware that due to some of the geographical areas visited and some of the activities included on certain of our trips some standard insurance policies may not always provide adequate cover. As such we strongly recommend that you purchase a policy that adequately covers your trip. Please see the Insurance section for more details.

General Information

TOUR PRICE

All our tours are priced on a land-only basis, giving you maximum flexibility when deciding how to get to and from your tour.

DEPOSIT

A 10% deposit is required to confirm your booking.
