For some of the best hiking in Central Asia, join us on a trek in the mountains of the Altai, Khovsgol or Khangai where you will be delighted by the unspoiled beauty and remoteness that Mongolia offers. You can join our July scheduled trek to Mount Kharkhiraa, or if you have a group of friends (4 or more people) we can organise a tailor-made trip for you.
The Altai mountain range stretches from north to south along the western border with Kazakhstan and China. Many of the peaks are eternally snow-covered and even the lower valleys are only passable on foot during the brief summer. Many of the people living in this part of the country are Mongolian Kazakh's. They are Moslem not Buddhist, speak their own language and there are many cultural differences. The gers of the Kazakh's are larger and taller than those of the Mongolian nomads.
The remote snow capped peaks of Uvs province are the setting for a truly wild and adventurous trek in Western Mongolia. We use camels to carry our luggage and equipment as we hike over high mountain passes, impressive plateau and along spectacular river valleys of the Altai mountains.Go To Mt.Kharkhiraa Trek
Although much of Mongolian is vast open steppe or desert, there are a number of mountain areas that are good for trekking. In the north, close to the Russian border, is Lake Khovsgol to the west of which lie the Khoridol Saridag mountains. They are tall and steep sided; quite often there are no clear trails to follow. Central Mongolia is dominated by the Khangai mountains which stretch from the edge of the Gobi Desert northwards. These mountains, although of high altitude, are more like rolling green hills and climbs and descents are not so steep. On the western side of Mongolia are the Altai mountains, quite high with trails usually following river valleys. Other mountainous areas include the Khentii mountains east of Ulaanbaatar and the Gurvansaikhan National Park in the Gobi Desert.
You have to be fit to do a trek in Mongolia and most treks are classed as moderate. If you do a tailor-made trek the grade can be adjusted for you. The altitude is always below 3000 metres.

On our Mount Kharkhiraa trek, as for other hikes in very remote areas of Mongolia, we will be camping in tents. This is truly wild camping and at the mercy of nature, but our Force 10 tents are suitable for sun, rain, strong winds or snow.
If you choose to do a tailor-made walking holiday with daily hikes from ger camps, the accommodation is slightly more luxurious, having proper beds, toilet and washing facilities, a restaurant, etc.. We can travel from one ger camp to another by jeep, so that you don't have to walk long distances in areas where the landscape doesn't change much.
Food is always provided on all our tours. Once on trek there are no tea houses or shops where one could buy something to eat, so all food is carried with us from the start, or provided by ger camps if it's that kind of trip.
Travel to Mongolia and enjoy a very remote trek in the mountains of Uvs province. The route crosses fast flowing white water rivers and climbs to high peaks amongst the ancient glaciers. The variety and quantity of wild flowers is amazing and the views are stunning. Camels are loaded up each morning to carry all the equipment and are always photogenic. Please note this is old, low resolution video.
We organize several fixed date group trips to Mongolia including mountain biking, motorcycling, horse riding, trekking and cultural trips. You are welcome to join as an individual or if there are several friends together. This is a good way to travel in Mongolia if you want the companionship of others and to meet some interesting people.
