TOUR OVERVIEW

Travel with us for an adventure horse trek to Gunjiin Sum "Princess Temple". This remote village is difficult to access with a vehicle and we will be traveling in total autonomy on horseback with pack-horses to carry the equipment.

Gunjiin soum hosts the Princess Temple dedicated to a Mongolian nobleman, Dondovdorj, a Chinese wife. She was a peaceful princess who loved her adopted country and people.

Your trek will start at the end of the paved road in Terelj National Park crossing a large river and continuing throughout a beautiful landscape made of rivers, forests, steppe valleys, and mountains with rich flora.

The further you will ride, the fewer nomadic families you will meet. This will be a wonderful immersion in Mongolia's quiet nature. However, don't be surprised if you hear wolves during the night! The road can be difficult depending on the weather conditions, as it can transform into large swamp areas after rainfalls. We, therefore, recommend it to people who are used to challenging treks and conditions and comfortable on and around horses.
