Is this tour suitable for me?

This is a regular tour includes overnight stays in ger camps in the countryside and a hotel in Ulaanbaatar. No hard physical or risky activities included. Traveling in Mongolia always requires long driving through changing landscapes and through scenic views. Even though, we tried to plan the tour to have as little driving as possible. Approximate day driving will be 3-5 hours. However, the driving time is subject to change due to weather and road conditions when driving on rough roads of pristine and gorgeous Khentii mountains. We also cross several rivers and streams. The itinerary includes some light activities such as 1-2 hours soft hiking and an hour horse riding with supports of your guide and local equestrian.

Accommodation

Mongolian tourism depends highly on the season, and seasonal accommodation ger camps are fully open between 20 May and 20 September.
