Mongolia is a landlocked country dominated by sparsely populated steppe and the semi-desert Gobi.
It was once the centre of an empire that stretched all the way to Europe, ruled by Genghis Khan and his mounted armies.
In 1990 Mongolia abandoned its 70-year-old Soviet-style one-party system and returned to a Buddhist community, embracing political and economic reform. There are vast quantities of untapped mineral wealth in the country which has made Mongolia vulnerable to foreign investors and is transforming the country's tiny economy. A third of the population lives in the capital, Ulan Baator, and about half the country's people are nomadic, herding livestock across the extensive pasturelands.
Mongolia is a blend of traditional and modern, which makes a riding holiday in Mongolia so exciting.
The rides below are divided into two categories: "Ger" and "Camp": a ger is a traditional circular construction made from felt, the same as a yurt (which is Turkish); they are heated and you sleep on a safari-style cot-bed. The other rides are camping itineraries where we use conventional two-man tents and sleeping mattresses on the ground.
WE CAN ARRANGE ALL THE RIDE DESCRIBED BELOW FOR PRIVATE GROUPS OF 4 OR MORE RIDERS
