At the Doorstep to great Horse Riding Country

The riding base camp of Stone Horse Expeditions is at the door-step to great horse riding country – the cultural landscapes of Gorkhi Terelj National Park and the mountain wilderness of the Khan Khentii Special Protected Area, two of Mongolia’s premier parks.

At the Stone Horse staging area – riders getting acquainted with their trail horses and saddles and packing their gear on horseback

Our staging area is about an hour’s drive from Ulaanbaatar in the Darkhid Valley, the home valley of our herd of Mongolian horses and where we work with the local community. The quiet valley, with gers and log cabins, is the back drop for your welcome, where we prepare and pack for our horse riding expedition — and where you meet and get to know your horse before we set out. From here, a short forest ride takes us to a pass beyond which lies the park – and days of riding, exploring and relaxing.

 

 

 

Our Commitment to Conservation.

dscn8908

Conservation of the environment is one of the main reasons why we enjoy taking people on horse tours into some of Mongolia’s most pristine and wild areas. Sharing this with you gives us joy and confidence that others from around the world will also understand that conserving the biodiversity of nature is not a luxury, but a necessity of life that all of us must protect. We believe that Thoreau’s dictum In wildness is the preservation of the world” is something people must both feel and experience to truly understand. We can help you do that. Read more.

We work with the local Community

Horse Riding Mongolia, Horse Treks, Horse Riding Holiday Mongolia

Stone Horse Expeditions & Travel personnel have a long history of working with local communities throughout Mongolia on conservation and rural development, and we continue to do so. Working with the Darkhid community of herders, we support initiatives that reduce human caused pressure on natural resources and restore grasslands, forest, wetlands and streams.

Through our company, we arrange the bookings for a homestay in a ger(yurt) with local herder families so you can experience life here as the herders live it. Most guests have liked joining in the normal daily chores of the homestay hosts, learning about herders’ life in Mongolia first hand. Learn about a GER STAY.

The Darkhid Valley, A View from the Stone Horse Staging Area
The Darkhid Valley

The Darkhid Valley lies secluded, its mountain steppe pastures surrounded by forests of Siberian larch, pine, spruce and birch,  and with small streams and wetlands harboring willow and elder. The grasslands that provide pasture for wildlife and livestock comprise several hundred species of wild grasses and herbs that bloom in an explosion of colors when left in their natural state. With its summer flowers, high grass, and songs of the Cuckoo everywhere, the valley is near paradise. A great place to start your holiday…
