Horseback Riding Vacation Mongolia

You will love this tour for the unique opportunity to combine two outdoor activities: hiking and horseback riding. It has an itinerary where you will ride or hike every day in a new environment. After five days of hiking through the mountains of Khangai, spend four days on horseback in the Orkhon Valley.
