A two-week magical, mountain adventure in the remote northwest corner of Mongolia.
One of the World’s great adventure treks that crosses two high passes
Wild, unspoilt terrain populated by nomads
Enjoy the hospitality of the local people by visiting a local family ‘ger’
Full service camping on trek and good quality hotels elsewhere
Our moderate trek between the twin peaks of Mount Kharkiraa and Mount Turgen begins in the Uliastai Valley in remote Uvs province. We reach jewel-like waters of the Blue Lake within the first days, progressing over low passes, through steep-sided valleys and along the banks of the Kharkiraa river. Along the way, scenery becomes increasingly dramatic and varied with open plateau, glacial lakes and high peaks forming the captivating backdrop to our trek. This is a once in a lifetime experience in a truly wild, unkempt region where local people live a nomadic existence and we will undoubtedly encounter their ‘open house’ hospitality.
