This is a very convenient itinerary for those looking for an easy trek. This trek takes place in the heart of Mongolia, in Arkhangai province, a symbol of Mongolian identity, with its peaceful green meadows, rolling hills and valleys dotted with wildflowers.
Since the area presents a great environment for animal husbandry, you’ll have the opportunity to meet nomads and be invited to their families. Parallel, some few days of the tour will be spent in complete isolation from human contact, in the beautiful Suvarga khairkhan mountain. During the trek, we will occasionally have visit interesting museums and historical sites of Orkhon valley, including Kharkhorin and Erdene Zuu Monastery site, which are an important part of Mongolian history. You will also enjoy the magnificent Orkhon waterfall, freshwater rivers, and lovely sandy area of Elsen Tasarhai.
