Mid-central Mongolia Horse Riding Tour

Duration:14days / 13nights


Mongolian strong horses are very faithful companions of nomads

Riding in Mongolia is interesting and exciting. Mongolia is probably the most horse riding nation in the world. There is no other nation so much accompanied by the horse in the world that even children learn horse riding as they walk. To be a friend of Mongolian horse, it is not necessary to be a skilled horseman; both good riders and less experienced riders will find it out Mongolian horses are so easy to deal. The absence of fences and spectacular forest with stunning rock formations and galloping nomads await you.

This is a close encounter with Mongolian horsemen and their horses. And we shall ride together for 6-8 hours each day covering about 20 km/32mile per day. So reasonable fitness levels and bit previous riding experience are recommended.
