5 days Ger Camp in the Khan Khentii
Itinerary (Ulaanbaataar - Khan Khentii - Jalman Meadows Ger camp - Ulaanbaatar )

In the uppermost parts of the Tuul River Valley, just one-day ride short of the watershed of Asia, is Jalman Mountain and Jalman Meadows. It is a huge meadow along the Tuul River with a lot of wildflowers in the summer. It is located within the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area, which is Mongolia's only and true wilderness area, extending all the way up until the Russian-Siberian frontier. Terelj National Park is the southernmost extension of that same wilderness area. In Terelj proper tourism has been allowed to develop. Nomadic Journeys low impact ger camp, Jalman Meadows Ger Camp, is located next to the Tuul River and Jalman Meadows.

The area is in the transition zone of steppes and taiga forests in the uppermost parts of the Tuul River Valley, a mere full day's ride from where the river originate. Hence, there are steppe valleys, meadows along the Tuul River, larch forests with patches of birch.Wildlife such as wolf, lynx, brown bear, red deer, gazelle, moose, wild boar are certainly present but hard to see during the summer. Jalman Meadows is located in the autumn and winter pastures of nomadic herders of Erdene soum. A few remain, but most families vacate the area with their animals to allow for good seasonal pasture. North from the meadows it is complete wilderness, and a two days hike south, you will find the summer pastures of the nomadic families.This is the reason for a profusion of wildflowers around Jalman Meadows.
