Tailor Made Itinerary - 7

Khangai Mountain & White Lake Trek (Hiking)


  • Arkhangai Province in Central Mongolia

    This trek in in a beautiful part of the country which has some exciting geographical features and nomadic families living the traditional lifestyle. Hot mineral springs, used by the local people as health spas, are quite common in Mongolia, and the first part of our trek takes us to a small resort in the wooded hills of the Khangai mountains. Further north, the White Lake and its surrounding area were influenced by volcanic activity thousands of years ago creating some dramatic sights.

    The trek is suitable for people who enjoy easy to moderate hiking

    There are few steep slopes to climb and for the most part we can walk on rough jeep tracks.The distance planned for each days trekking varies from approximately 15-25km per day. However a support vehicle will always be at hand so if you prefer to do shorter daily walks this will not be a problem. Accommodation outside the city will be a mixture of traditional ger camps and camping in western style tents.
