Day 1: Flight to Uliastai

Zavkhan aimag is situated in the western part of Mongolia.
On the North it borders with the Russian Federation. The eastern edge of Zavkhan aimag is the western flank of the Khangai Nuruu, the second highest mountain range in Mongolia, and a spectacular area of forests and lakes, dotted with snow-clad peaks, white-water streams and hot and cold springs.
The southern and western parts of Zavkhan, usually ignored by visitors and by Mongolians because of poor roads and transport, is a sharp contrast – a land of vast deserts, sand dunes, salt lakes and mountains where rain falls once or twice a year. Because off its awkward location few travellers pass which is pity. Scenery is some of most dramatic and varied in the country.
You will be picked up by our team at Donoi airport. Our jeeps will drive us along the Bogd River through the Donoi Khundii open valley to reach our starting point close to the granite formation. This place is called Mod Tolgoi.

Day 2: Otgontenger Mountain

For 2 days we will ride into the direction of the Otgontenger Mountain. Otgontenger Uul is the highest peak of the Khangai Nuruu range and Mongolia’s 5th highest mountain. Its peak is at 4020 meters above the sea level. Otgontenger is the only mountain of the Khangai range that is capped with a glacier.
The mountain is one of the worshipped mountains of Mongolia. Worshipping began during Khunnu times by the first governing state of Mongolia, and this tradition continues to the present day. Historically, this mountain was initially protected in 1818. The peak and its environs have been protected since 1992 to conserve the high mountain ecosystem. The south face of Otgon Tenger Uul is the biggest granite wall in Mongolia.
