Classic horse riding trek in Mongolia

Mongolian Classic with Naadam Festival

Ride Overview

This horse riding trek in Mongolia combines the lush beauty of the Blue Khentii Mountain, the austere landscape of the Gobi Desert, and the colorful Naadam Festival.
The mountains of Gorkhi-Terelj National Park are breathtaking; lush green forests, crystal-clear lakes, mountain streams, waterfalls and spectacular mountain scenery. The wild flowers, which carpet the meadows and hillsides in profusion are quite beautiful and occasionally one glimpses elusive wildlife including mountain elk, wildcat, bears, Argali sheep, foxes and wolves. After several days of riding and hiking at the mountain camp, drive back to Ulaanbaatar for Naadam Festival, the most colorful and enjoyable of all Mongolian celebrations. It is a time when all the country celebrates the three national sports of horse racing, archery and wrestling. Then fly south to explore the historical, cultural and natural sights of the Gobi Desert which are enthralling but rarely visited. This dramatic and varied landscape has attracted several generations of explorers and adventurers from around the world.

Mongolian Classic Treks are scheduled at times other than in conjunction with the Naadam Festival. The itinerary is the same at the mountain camp and in the Gobi Desert, but does not include the festival.
