Photos of Mongolia Horse Riding

Photography for Environmental Awareness and Nature Conservation in Mongolia

Photography has always played a role in our work to show the beauty of nature, and to raise public awareness of threats to the natural environment and the need to protect the resources of our planet and to set aside pristine wilderness. We are continuing this work in Mongolia with our eco tourism riding expeditions.

Stone Horse Expeditions into the Gorkhi Terelj National Park and the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area offer great opportunities for photography,of nature, of horses, of riding adventures in Mongolia and of the interesting historic and cultural sites we explore on our horse trekking expeditions in Mongolia.

Desert travel adventure in the Gobi.
.
This was during our 6 day camel trek in Mongolia's Gobi in May this year. A great way to see the desert landscape, and to get acqainted with another mode of travel.
.
Its slow paced, compared to horseback travel, and there is a nice feel to it when the little caravan moves along quietly and steadily, leaving big prints of soft feet in the sand..
.
The biggest challenge for our trek were the relentless Gobi winds, still blowing. The winds used to abate by May usually, but it seems the new weather patterns have prolonged the windy periods in Mongolia's South..
.
The country is among those experiencing the most pronounced manifestations of climate change, with a rise in average temperatures and in extreme weather events.
.
Nevertheless, our Gobi trek was a great adventure and memorable experience for our intrepid travelers - thanks to our knowledgable and skillfull local guides, careful preparation and quality camping equipment to provide shelter and a few comforts.
.
Winter is actually the best time, despite colder temperatures, for camelback adventures down here. The weather is typically calm, and the camels are clad in thick coats of wool.

We like to capture the images of landscapes and wilderness, and to document the days of the riding holidays with our guests. After each tour, we make a selection of photos and make them available to our tour guests – a selection for the group plus individual selections.
