Is this tour suitable for me?

The tour takes place at two beautiful national parks; Gorkhi Terelj National Park and Khan Khentii National Park. We will drive through Gorkhi Terelj National Park rather than ride horses there. Khan Khentii National Park is our main site of the horse riding. The national park is the closest wilderness area not traveled much. Therefore, we do not need to drive far, and you will be in an entirely different world just after 2 hours driving. The tour is suitable for both beginners and advanced riders. If you are not a horseback adventurer, but traveling your family or friends they like this kind of activities. No worries. You can ride the horses at your pace with the help of a local equestrian. If long or fast riding as others is not your interest, you can enjoy some hiking and sit in your support vehicle which follows you every day. We planned the tour have maximum 25 to 30 km riding a day. Even though you can have your optional riding after settled camping if the 25 to 30 km is not enough for you. You or people in your group are all beginners and amateur riders. Even though wish to discover the country of wild nature and horse culture on horseback, we could customize the itinerary, could shorten the riding distance or number of riding days. However, we may require some horse riding abilities for your safety, comfort, and favor of you and the other tour members if you join other people of our group departures. Local riding techniques, the best ways to treat Mongol horses and their character etc. will be taught at the beginning of the tour. The tour includes 1 overnight stay in a ger camp at the end of your countryside tour. So that, you can wash and be refreshed before your arrival in the city. 3 nights in the tent among outstanding nature and 2 nights in a hotel in Ulaanbaatar.
