10 Days Horse Trekking and Nomadic Culture Experience in Northern Mongolia

Mörön, Mongolia

Horse Trekking Holiday in Mongolia

Enjoy a trip to Northern Mongolia and visit Khuvsgul Lake, the deepest and freshest lake in Mongolia. Northern Mongolia is called Mongolian Switzerland because it is completely covered by a green forest. There are 20 ethnic groups in total in Mongolia, one of them is Tsaatan (reindeer people). Hidden in an isolated corner of Northern Mongolia, straddling the border of Russian Siberia, a unique minority group lives in the sprawling tundra. The Tsaatan people are notably different for the livestock that they keep. Not yaks, camels, goats or horses, but reindeer. These reindeer herders have been attracting international attention over the last few years for their unique and unchanged way of life. This tour offers you to explore the Tsaatan people, enjoy Khuvsgul Lake and experience a nomadic culture.
