Testimonial
horse riding

Though I am not professional rider, our horse trekking guides guided me very well. Mongolian horses look like pony but I knew how powerful they are. Our horsetrekking went through forest, high mountain and finally reached Tsaatan reindeer people. We had good time with them. I will recommend this adventure tour to anyone who is interested in horse riding.

Tour Description

There is no better way to explore Mongolia than on horseback. We offer a wide range of horse trekking in Mongolia: this one is in the far north of Mongolia in the Khovsgol Lake. Reindeer breeding people who live in this area, we will reach there with horse trekking. Join us on this horse trekking experience of a lifetime in the scenery of Khovsgol Lake. Enjoy the tranquility of riding on horseback and walking at a leisurely pace through the White Lakes, rivers, valleys and reinder breeding people/Tsaatan/. Camp under the endless blue Mongolian skies by crystal-clear waters of Khovsgol Lake. The best time to horse trekking in Mongolia is June to October when horses are at their best. We will ride through green pastures and lush meadows, camping next to the crystal-clear White Lakes and amongst valleys filed with wild flowers. The journey will be on foot and horseback, but always at a leisurely pace. On the way we will meet reindeer breeding people who maintain one of the world’s most ancient and sustainable ways of life. This journey will give you a fresh perspective on life and a renewed sense of well being.
