Tailor Made Itinerary - 9

Khovsgol Mountains and Lake (Horse Riding)


  • Khovsgol Province in Northern Mongolia

    Is best known for its beautiful lake - the locals call it “Mother Ocean”. There are few roads in these parts and all the local people use horses to travel in the area. In the winter the huge lake is frozen and people take their horses and sleighs on the ice up to the Siberian border to do trade. Khovsgol lake is surrounded by forests and mountains full of wild animals and birds. One can ride in the mountains and along the lake shore for many days, enjoying the pure air and dramatic scenery.

    Mongolian horses and saddles

    The ride will be adjusted to suit your riding experience, so the time spent riding each day could be from between four to six hours. Saddles are usually Russian style like a leather cushion with a metal hand bar. Since vehicles are unable to travel in these parts all equipment and luggage are carried on pack horses.
