This tour invites you to explore the highlights of western Mongolia, the country's most remote region. Western Mongolia has many National Parks, Strictly Protected Areas, and Nature reserves. 
Western Mongolia has lots of beautiful sides. It is also home to the highest mountains in Mongolia. The Altai mountain range; the highest peak is Khuiten, 4374 m; the most extensive saltwater Uvs Lake Basin (inscribed in "UNESCO World Heritage Sites" in 2003), and many smaller lakes, mountains, rivers, forests, steppe, etc. Therefore, the region is home to the Kazakhs, a Muslim tribe. They use eagles to hunt foxes and hares during the cold winter when it is easier to see the gold-colored foxes against the snow. 

Our western Mongolian adventure tour will start with beautiful nature with a combination of high mountains, steppes, forests, and the Gobi Desert of Gobi-Altai province. Once we get there, we will have a chance to hike Tsambagarav Mountain.
This trip will impress you with its beauty and unique culture and customs. Also, we will see the impressive Altai Tavan-Bogd mountain range, the "Challenge of the West," that towers over the western part of Mongolia. Let me leave the rest of it to you to feel the beauty of virgin nature with your own eyes and experience it to your taste. Enjoy every moment with us!
