Tour Details

The Essence of Mongolia – Khara Khorum is an activity-packed tour into central Mongolia. Visit the
Orkhon Valley – World Cultural Heritage, Khogno Khan Reserve, and the dunes at Elsen Tasarkhai
before venturing to the Hustai National Park to see the wild Takhi horses and plenty of other wildlife.
This condensed trip lets you experience as much of Mongolia as possible in a short time of four
days. Overnight, stay at authentic guest gers next to local nomadic families and in a comfortable
ger camp for one night. Learn about your hosts’ culture and traditions, socialize with them, ride
horses and Bactrian camels, hike, and visit hilltop temples. This all-encompassing trip contains
most of what Mongolia offers, including must-dos and must-sees, and is perfect for those with
limited time in the country.
