VACATION IN MONGOLIA
Vacation in Mongolia
All the best of western Mongolia are combined on this tour
Vacation in Mongolia is an amazing trip for those people who love adventure and see more in Mongolia. During this trip you will be driving through Altai mountains and see 20 km long Potaniin glacier, do climbing up to Malchin peak which is higher than 4000 meters from the sea level, do one-day horse riding, short hiking, experience nomadic life, visit eagle hunter’s family and much more activities that combined in this tour!
We invite you to visit western Mongolian most remote villages where China, Russia, and Kazakhstan are just a stone’s throw away. We invite you to experience people who live differently than you do. Thanks to their austere and rusting reality they have acquired a kind of freedom that not everyone is able to handle. Being with them you become different too as if you were living another life.
