|Asia-Planet > Mongolia > Mongolia Tours > 12 days Horse Ride steppes and Khan Khentii|
This journey on horseback is a close encounter with Mongolian horsemen and their horses.A nomadic people who to date have survived the modern pressures and lifestyles. There is no other nation in the world that so much depends on horses. The Mongol horsemanship is famous, and strikingly different to anything else.The herders keep their horses in a semi-wild condition, allowing them to live freely in harem groups. During the harsh winter in subzero temperatures, the horses are able to fend for themselves and protect their foals against predators such as wolfs.There are no fences or any stables anywhere.
We will start this horse ride as a nomadic journey, without vehicle support in wild terrain. Our luggage will be loaded on to yak carts; a ger will be carried to house our mobile restaurant unit.The beginning of the ride will be in the steppes and gradually it will become very scenic in the forest steppe mosaic and southern taiga lifezone. Mountains, steppes, forests and wooded meadows. Camping along rivers.

Note : We have introduced a concept of practical and desirable ways of travel in Mongolia, which is the synergy of Western and Mongolian ideas brought about after many years experience of travel all across Mongolia. We emphasize the quality of human contacts and encounters with local people. Respect for the horse and local equestrian traditions, from which many lessons can be learnt. Shared adventures, living with horses, yaks and camels in the great outdoors, choosing the life of the nomad. An active holiday calling for some effort but with moments of complete relaxation and pleasure.
Transport: Mongolian families frequently move from one pasture to the other using traditional wooden carts.These are tied to the animals available in the region.Here we will use yaks, or rather yak-cow crossbreeds here called "hainag". The services of some herdsmen will be hired by the expedition, and they will provide us with their animals.
Staff : A local guide who speaks English and Mongolian will accompany the group at all times. A cook will follow, with an assistant.In addition, the services of the local herdsmen will be hired along with their animals.The horsemen follow a traditional lifestyle in the areas where we will be riding.
Meals: Our cook will prepare the meals. We pride ourselves in having cooks adapt to both western and Mongolian cooking on our trips.There are always vegetables available, and we have no problem accommodating vegetarians on our trips.For breakfast we can usually buy fresh yogurt from the herdsmen in the local area.
Minimum riding ability: Competent rider. Fit and capable of riding at all paces confidently.Varying terrain, in the saddle for several hours.
