Day 2. Drive to The Elsen Tasarkhai semi-desert (B/L/D)

Today, we will pick you up from your hotel and drive to the Elsen-Tasarkhai semi-desert. The area is surrounded by sand dunes, hills covered with rare bushes, and a small forest near a river. This presents a unique combination of Mongolian mountains, forests, and Gobi-type landscape in one location.

Once we get there, we will ride a camel for 1 hour, then walk on the sand dunes, explore the area, experience the lifestyle of a nomadic family in a traditional Mongolian ger, and relax in beautifully serene nature. For dinner, we will have a traditional Mongolian BBQ. Overnight at a nomadic family's ger camp.

Day 3. Drive to 13th century ancient capital Kharkhorum (B/L/D)

In the morning, we will drive to the Kharkorum, the Great Mongolian Empire's ancient capital. The city served as the Mongolian capital for only 40 years (until Khubilai Khaan moved it to Beijing). Chinese soldiers later destroyed most of the city during the second half of the 14th century.

The remnants of the town were used to build the ErdeneZuu Monastery in the 16th century. Upon arrival in the Kharkorum, the first and most prominent landmark is the massive walls of the Erdenezuu Monastery, the first Buddhist monastery in Mongolia. Explore the area, visit the museum, and explore the area. Overnight at a local hotel.

Trees, a frozen waterfall and snow

Day 4. Drive to Orkhon waterfall (B/L/D)

Today, we will drive to Orkhon Valley, which was registered as World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2005.
Many of Mongolia's ancient monuments lie within its basin. Orkhon Waterfall, also called Ulaan Tsutgalan, was formed by a series of volcanic eruptions about 20.000 years ago.
​It cascades from a height of 22 meters and is 10m wide. Here we will visit a nomad family and go horse riding for an hour. Overnight at a nomadic family's ger camp.

Lots of trees and snow

Day 5. Drive to Tuvkhun Monastery (B/L/D)

Today, we will drive to Tuvkhun Monastery. Visitors hike 5 km up to the monastery from the skirt of the mountain. The Tuvkhun monastery was first established in 1648 by the 14-year-old Zanabazar first Jebtsundamba khutuktu Bogd. He first noticed this beautiful place in 1651 and then built a small wooden cabin for meditation. That was the beginning of the Tuvkhun monastery. Overnight at a nomadic family's ger camp.

frozen lake

Day 6. Drive to Frozen Ugii Lake (B/L/D)

In the morning, we will drive to the Uglii lake, a freshwater lake in eastern Arkhangai in central Mongolia.

The lake, designated a Ramsar Site of International Importance, is known for its fish and bird life. It is a stopover point for migrating water birds of the family Anatidae.​
Almost half the lake is less than 3 m deep. Overnight at a nomadic family's ger camp.

Day 7. Drive to Hustai National Park (B/L/D)
