5 days Yak trek in the Khan Khentii
Itinerary (Ulaanbaatar - Jalman Meadows - Khan Khentii - Ulaanbaatar)

You need to travel, and use the modes of transport, like the Mongol herdsmen themselves in order to get a real feeling for, and experience a close up encounter with the pace and lifestyle of the local people. During this dramatic journey you will wander by foot into the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area, a beautiful wilderness area closing up on the Khentii Mountains. If you are an experienced rider, a horse may be rented for you. We will be equipped as a true expedition, yak carts bringing the luggage. We will also bring all necessary provisions, a cook, an assistant, plus a ger (yurt) to house our mobile restaurant unit. In connection with this you will get the experience of assembling this comfortable Mongol style dwelling with our local herdsmen.

Brief Outline Itinerary
On this journey we use low impact traditional modes of transport. Our equipment will be carried on carts, the same way the locals use to transport their belongings, moving from one pasture to another. For this purpose we will use yaks and horses. We will also carry a ger, which is the traditional felt tent, in which most Mongols live even these days. Essentially, this means we can utilize the services of the local people in the area where we are to travel. They are the experts, and we will be able to get a first hand experience of how to move a camp in the Mongolian traditional way.

Joint tour : Departure from Ulaanbataar : Please refer to the dates below.

Day  1
Ulan Bataar - Jalman Meadows (-/Lunch/Diner)
After breakfast we leave Ulaanbaatar for the Upper Tuul River Valley in the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area some 110 km away; a three-hour drive by bus or car. We drive one hour on tarmac road, one hour through a beautiful steppe valley where there are many herdsmen with their livestock. The last hour we cross the ridge at Zamtiin Davaa, and, traveling through forests, we reach the Upper Tuul River Valley. Pitch camp next to the Tuul River. Overnight in tents.

Day  2
Jalman Meadows - Khan Khentii (Breakfast/Lunch/Diner)
We load our luggage onto the carts. Our first campsite is in a steppe valley, surrounded by the Hentii hills, which are covered with larch and birch forests. Herdsmen keep their livestock in the southern areas, following a lifestyle that has essentially been the same since the time of Genghis Khan. Overnight in tents.

Day  3
Khan Khentii (Breakfast/Lunch/Diner)
We trek for three full days toward the Hentii wilderness area and soon we touch the limits of human habitation. We will use yaks to pull the traditional wooden carts on which all our equipment will be loaded and transported. Our Mongol staff will accompany us on horseback. No support vehicles will be required, nor are they practical in the area where we are to trek. The yaks will set the pace of our nomadic journey over easy terrain (max. 20 km per day). A cook who knows western and Mongolian cooking will be with us in the field. Members will be able to learn how to build a ger. This can be done very quickly if several people join in. Overnight in tents.

Day  4
Khan Khentii (Breakfast/Lunch/Diner)
We are now in a scenic area, where rivers flow down broad steppe valleys. Around us are forested hills and mountains. Along the rivers there are wooded and alluvial meadows with broad-leaf forests. Today we will return back to the road.

Day  5
Khan Khentii - Ulan Bataar (Breakfast/-/Diner)
After breakfast transfer back to Ulaanbaatar (3½ hrs). In the afternoon free time to explore the city. On this day you may also choose instead to transfer to nearby Jalman Meadows Ger Camp, 8km further up the Tuul River Valley, and extend your stay in the zone. Please ask us for additional hotel reservations as needed in Ulaanbaatar. You have the choice to continue explore other parts of Mongolia or stay another day or two in Ulaanbaatar.

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.

Transport: Mongolian families frequently move from one pasture to another using wooden traditional carts. These are tied to the animals available in the region. Here we will use yaks and horses: the services of some herdsmen will be hired by the expedition, and they will provide us with their animals.

Staff: A Mongolian leader will accompany the group at all times. For these groups the service will be in English. There will also be an assistant to the cook. In addition, the services of the local herdsmen will be hired along with their animals.

Riding horses: There will be an opportunity for experienced riders at the time of booking to ordera saddled riding horse, with a horse-man to follow, at the cost of USD 35. Mongolian horses are peculiar and horsemanship is somewhat different among the Mongols as compared to home. We suggest you bring your own riding hat with you, since none are available in Mongolia.

Meals: Our cook will prepare the meals. We pride ourselves in having cooks adapt with 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.
