The towering peaks of the Tavan Bogd mountain range have, for centuries, mesmerised locals and visitors alike. Located in the Bayan-Olgii, the westernmost province of Mongolia, this magnificent mountain range is home to unique species of alpine animals such as Argali sheep, ibex, red deer, moose, snow leopard and golden eagle. Bordering with China and Russia, Bayan-Olgii is inhabited largely by Muslim and Kazakh communities, and houses Mongolia’s highest peak, the Khuiten Peak, which stands at 4,374 m above sea-level.

Summer makes a wonderful visit to experience one of the most dramatic natural landscapes Mongolia can offer. Besides the snow-capped peaks, travellers are also greeted by glaciers, deep lush valleys carpeted with myriad of flowers, alpine lakes and hospitable eagle-hunters. Horse riding is perhaps one of the best forms of transportation to get around the region. Riding through the rugged and yet untouched terrains makes one feel like Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings.

Your journey starts from Olgii, the provincial capital, and make way towards the base of Tavan Bogd mountain range. Sleeping under the Milky Way, singing and drinking with the nomads, hiking in the mountain range and horse riding across stunning landscapes are just some of the amazing activities to whet your adventure appetite. The trip will end off with a cultural visit where you get to interact up-close and personal with the eagle-hunter and his family.
