Tailor Made Itinerary - 6

Khoridol Saridag Mountains & Lake Khovsgol Trek (Hiking)


  • Khovsgol is without doubt one of the most beautiful and accessible parts of Mongolia

    Water from Lake Khovsgol is so pure that you can drink it. The shores are surrounded by forests and flower filled meadows, and along the western side lie the dramatic Khoridol Saridag mountains. This five day trek along the lake shore and up onto the mountain ridges offers magnificent views and great hiking. There may be opportunities to meet local nomadic people and observe their ancient lifestyle.

    The daily walking distance is 10-20 km, with some fairly steep up and downhill sections.

    The trek is suitable for anyone who takes regular exercise. The luggage is carried by pack horses and the local staff will cook and set up camp each night during the trek.
