DAY6- DAY8: ALTAI TAVAN BOGD TREKKING

After breakfast, we will start to trekking to the Malchin peak, Altai mountains.

Stunning Altai Tavan Bogd National Park follows Western Mongolia's border with China and Russia, and is the greatest attraction in Western Mongolia. The Park really does have it all: beautiful valleys, alpine lakes, rivers, glaciers, and the highest peaks in Mongolia. This natural richness gives rise to a host of activities; most visitors will do some hiking or horse riding, but there are fantastic opportunities for the better equipped or ogranised to try fishing, climbing, rafting, or back country skiing. To top it all off, travelers can experience the amazing Kazakh culture and see archeological sights such as petroglyphs and burial mounds. With all these attractions, you would think the place would be crawling with tourists. Fortunately, Altai Tavan Bogd Park is still blessedly peaceful and unvisited; even in peak tourist season, traveling the most popular areas, you'll only see other tourists every few days or so. Get there before it all changes! 

TAVAN BOGD MOUNTAINS

Tavan Bogd, or 'Five Saints', is so named for the five large peaks which lie right on the Western Mongolian border. The tallest of these, Khuiten Uul, is the highest mountain in Mongolia, at 4,369m (about 14,300 feet). It forms the Altai Mountains tri-border between Russia, China and Mongolia. From between these permanently snow-covered peaks tumble two spectacular glaciers. The valleys heading up toward the peaks are completely empty of people and absolutely stunning. Whether you do a day hike up or make a five day hike or horse trek up from the lakes below, you'll find Visiting these peaks to be a highlight of Western Mongolia.

To visit the Altai Tavan Bogd National park peaks by vehicle, there is one access road which heads into the park east from Ulaanhus via Zagastruur. It's a rough but very pretty drive up through the barren, rugged hills and nomad ger camps to reach the park. Also, the road from Ulaanhus contains some of the best petroglyphs (deer stones) in Mongolia, so keep a lookout as you're driving past. If you dont' have a (good!) guide, you may risk driving straight past them. Accommodation: Tents  Meals: BF, L, D

Khuvsgul Lake is located in the northwest of Mongolia near the border to Russia, at the foot of the eastern Sayan Mountains. It is 1,645 m above sea level, 136 km long and 262 m deep. It is the second-most voluminous freshwater lake in Asia, and holds almost 70% of Mongolia's fresh water and 0.4% of all the fresh water in the world. Its watershed is relatively small, and it only has small tributaries. It gets drained at the south end by the Egiin Gol, which connects to the Selenge and ultimately into Lake Baikal. In between, the water travels a distance of more than 1,000 km, and a height difference of 1,169 m, although the line-of-sight distance is only about 200 km. Its location in northern Mongolia helps form the southern border of the great Siberian taiga forest, of which the dominant tree is the Siberian Larch. The lake is surrounded by several mountain ranges. The highest mountain is the Burenkhaan / Munkh Saridag (3,492 m), which has its peak north of the lake exactly on the Russian-Mongolian border. The surface of the lake freezes over completely in winter. It's inhabited by nine species of fish including the Siberian grayling, sturgeon and lenok and the area is rich with various species of flora and fauna. And the area is home to argali sheep, ibex, bear, sable, moose and wolves. The region hosts three separate, unique peoples: Darkhad, Buriat and Tsaatan. Shamanism, rather than Buddhism, is the religion of choice in these parts.

DAY14. AMARBAYASGALANT MONASTERY

Amarbayasgalant Monastery, whose name means ”monastery of the quiet felicity”, is located near the Selenge River, at the foot of Mount Burenkhan. It’s one of the three largest monasteries of Mongolia. The Manchu emperor Enkh Amgalan Khan built the monastery in the 18th century, in memory of the first Bogd Gegeen, Zanabazar, in order to keep and preserve his mortal remains. The construction began in 1727 and completed in 1737. 1200 langs (= 3730 kilograms or 8223 pounds) of silver coming from the state coffers were used to build this sumptuous monastery. The emperor personally wrote in four languages (Mongolian, Tibetan, Manchu and Chinese) a message symbolizing his protection and his control. This was written on a sign suspended in the entrance of the main temple. It’s one of the rare monasteries that have partly avoided the destruction of 1937 by the Soviets. The buildings of the main part were spared and the thangkas, the statues and the manuscripts were looted. All the lamas in charge of the place were executed and the monastery has been neglected for 50 years. Since 1998, the lamas have been restoring the monastery and new statues have been ordered in New Delhi, India.

This monastery shows a real archaeological unity. The style is generally Chinese, with Mongolian and Tibetan influences. The place is symmetrical and the main buildings follow each other along a North-South axis ; the other buildings are located on parallel lateral axis.

Today you can see 28 constructions, notably a two-storeyed temple covering an area of 32 square metres (344 square feet) and open for the ceremonies. This remarkable 300-years old construction proudly stands.

Accommodation: Tent or Traditional ger yurt  Meals: BF, L, D

DAY15. DRIVING BACK TO ULAANBAATAR CITY

After setting up at the family ger camp, will drive back to Ulaanbaatar. When we arrive to Ulaanbaatar, we will be transferred to a hostel or hotel for tonight. (BF,L)

  • Gina Passini

    GREAT tour with Altai Nomadic Expedition!!I did a 5 night/6 day tour with Tamirra, my guide, and Gamba, my driver, and I loved it! Tamirra and Gamba were great company, and I really enjoyed spending time with them and learning about Mongolia from Mongolians. Delicious meals were prepared and had a nice, comfortable car while driving to the White Stupa, Yol Valley, Khongor sand dunes, Flaming Cliffs, and Baga Gazriin Chuluu. I really enjoyed meeting Mongolian families, staying in gers, seeing camels and livestock in their natural environment, and doing some great hikes and seeing beautiful scenery. I LOVED riding a camel in the Gobi Desert and a horse in the Yol Valley.

    Our family had a week long trip in July 2016 in Central Mongolia with Tamiraa as our guide and Nyamaa as our driver. Tamiraa is very professional, friendly and helpful person. She provided us with unique experience of beautiful Mongolia and nomadic life. The driver Nyamaa is highly professional too and is very responsible person. Safety and comport of passengers is his top priority.Our children enjoyed the trip very much too. I highly recommend to travel with this Altai Nomadic and especially with Tamiraa and Nyamaa. We will surely come again to Mongolia and choose Tamiraa again as our guide.

  • Soumya Halder

    Our trip was so perfectly organised and planned by Altai Nomadic. We had no idea what a wonderful trip this would turn out to be. Right from pickup at the airport to drop, we were always helped with a smile which made us feel we were spending time with family in a new and unknown place.Since we were travelling in winter and with the temperatures not familiar to us (being from Calcutta, India where temperatures are never sub zero), Tamiraa made sure we were comfortable at all times. She never rushed us in the trip even when we were taking up too much time at a particular spot. She was also very patient with us being very noisy people.
