DAY 2 – KHARKHORIN, GATEWAY TO THE ORKHON VALLEY

Journey to Kharkhorin, the former capital of Mongolia. The legendary city of Genghis Khan was founded in 1220 and was one of the main stages of the silk road. The Mongolian Empire was governed from this city until Khubilai Khan set up the capital elsewhere. Today, there are only a few signs left over from the former capital.

In the afternoon we visit Erdene Zuu Monastery, built in 1586 by a nomad prince. The Chinese and Tibetan-inspired buildings are surrounded with 108 sacred stupas. We also visit the Museum of Kharkhorin.

DAY 3 – STAY AMONGST NOMADS IN THE ORKHON

Journey to Orkhon Valley. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the valley is the land of nomadism and many breeders set their summer camp there.

Visit the Tovkhon Monastery. Vehicles cannot go to the top of Öndör Ulaan Hill so we will walk until there to discover Tovkhon Ermitage, where Zanabazar, the first religious leader of Mongolia created the Soyombo alphabet. The monastery is located 2312 meters (1,44 mile) above the sea level and from there we’ll have a wonderful view of the whole Khangai range. We’ll also have a picnic here with an exceptional view facing Orkhon Valley.

DAY 4 – THE ORKHON VALLEY

From the Guest Ger you will board your steed and ride horse to the as Ulan Tsutgalaan falls. You may also get the chance to help herd sheep and yaks with local nomads.

Ulan Tsutgalaan falls translates to white flood flowing on the black stone, transformed in the rainbow by a short sun ray. These 16-metres (52,49 feet) falls are pure magic! They were formed 20.000 years ago, as a result of a unique combination of earthquakes and volcano eruptions.

If horse riding doesn’t interest you, then there is plenty of hiking trails, swimming spots, or you can just hang out with the nomads and learn about their way of life.
