Our Horse Riding Expeditions in Mongolia
Destinations of Our Horse Riding Expeditions in Mongolia
Chingiis Khan roamed these mountain areas as the boy Temujiin. The Khentii Mountains are the backdrop of our horse riding expeditions in Mongolia. They hold the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park and the Khan Khentii Special Protected Area. It is a mystical place in history, this, the largest of Mongolia’s wilderness. We escape the modern world, and by horseback are greeted to breathtaking scenery with each new day. Make this your destination to nature, your destination to rediscover yourself.
Gorkhi Terelj National Park Expeditions
Ride in Scenic Landscapes shaped by Nomadic Traditions
Gorkhi Terelj National Park is great country for horseback riding and exploring – wide open valleys and rolling hills, trails along rivers, over forested passes, down through high grasses to discover another valley. Explore the hills and grasslands, rest below rock formations arising from the steppe. Experience true hospitality and the ambiance of a Mongolian Ger (more known as Yurt in the West). Live the local culture, and be at ease with your horse – be at ease with nature.
Khentii Mountains Expeditions
Journey into the Heart of the Taiga Forest
Challenge your spirit of adventure. Enter the Khan Khentii, steeped in the spiritual history of Mongolia. Its wildness will reward you with magnificent scenery, and the solitude of the Northern forest. Follow ancient horse trails to the sources of the rivers. Encounter wildlife. Make a high mountain passage with our pack horses. Stop at alpine lakes. Enjoy camping comforts in the wild. Bond with your horse – and listen to the silence.

“An Adventure of a Life Time – “I loved every minute, the horses were lovely and very responsive, the countryside was wild and beautiful, the saddles comfortable and the food that was produced out of a tiny tent was indeed amazing (including freshly ground coffee every morning and wine at night). Everything was well organized but at the same time very relaxed.” Trish Durlacher, Sydney, Australia.
