    Central & North Mongolian routes combined a week trip allows you to visit yak herding nomads and to see a little semi-desert which surrounded by Gobi Oasis. The journey goes further into north to visit Khorgo Terkh National Park, where you'll do hiking a whole day to explore the Mongolian biggest volcanic crater, small volcanic caves and the great white lake.


    Head to the west to visit the Khugnu Tarna Nature Reserve, protects some endangered species of birds of prey and wolves. Three different nature zones are combined together in the same place and covers 49600hectars. Once we reach to the NR, will ride a Mongolian two humped camel and hike to Khugnu Khaan Mountain to visit the Erdene Khamba temple.

    Head to Kharkhorin village, an ancient capital of the Great Mongolian Empire, one of the most popular tourist destinations. Upon arrival in the village, we'll visit the earliest surviving monastery “Erdene Dzuu”, constructed with stones nearby ruins of the ancient Mongolian capital of Kharakhorum in 1586 by Abtai Sain King. The Monastic complex was also inscribed on the list of World Heritage in 2004 as a part of the Orkhon Valley Cultural Landscape. Before driving our accommodation, we’ll enjoy some exhibits and artifacts in Kharkhorum museum.

    Drive to Khorgo Terkh NP, famous with its attractive scenery, situated in Arkhangai province. Once reach of the park, we’ll visit Great White Lake/ Terkhyn tsagaan nuur/ where we’ll spend the night on its shore. We'll hike around Khorgo Mountain and explore small caves which are formed by volcanic lava stream.

    Head to Zuun lake, situated about 2000 meters above sea level and it can be really cold (below 13 degrees) in the evening even during summer time. It is a salt water lake and it’s so exclusive that it is not even marked on the google map! We took 5-hour bone grinding ride on the trusty 4-wheel drive through rolling plains and mountainous tracks to reach this lake.

    Drive to the most scenic destination of Northen Mongolia, Khuvsgul Lake (Khovsgol Nuur, also spelled 'Hovsgol') is the largest freshwater lake in Mongolia by volume and second largest by area holding 2% of the world's fresh water. Located near the Russian border, at the foot of the eastern Sayan Mountains, it is nicknamed "Younger sister of the Sister Lakes (Lake Khuvsgul and Lake Baikal)". The area of Khuvsgul Lake, raised well above sea level, is 2760ms. Its length is 136 km and width 36.5 km, and up to 260 m deep.

    Day off, enjoy whole day to explore the surroundings around the lake

    Travel to Uran Uul, an extinct volcano with energy and beauty beyond at the altitude of 1686 meters above sea level in Bulgan province. The nature-lovers from all over the Globe head to Uran Uul due to its ridge of crater that arise in nature which resembled a nice creature of mother nature. The area was preserved by the government as a Natural Monument with 5800 hectares in 1965. Incredibly beautiful volcano is formed a circle-shaped ridge with 500 diameters that contains emerald- green lake with 1.5 meters deep. Volcano is erupted as the tectonic movements of the Earth’s crust about 20 thousand years ago. Another three craters such as Tulga, Jalavch and Togoo are located 12 km in the south of Uran Uul and, these volcanic field is one of the outstanding landmarks where the rolling grasslands meet the foothills of Hangai mountains.

    Head our to Amarbayasgalant Monastery, was built during 1727-1736, in the honour of Undur Gegeen Zanabazar, the first Bogd, Buddhist leader of Mongolia. He was also a Founder of the Mongol School of religious art and created the minted Buddha Statues that are now highly respected and recognized worldwide. The architectures of this monastery are in perfect harmony with nature and environment. It is situated in the cul-de-sac of a long, deep valley backed by the sheef cliff of Burenkhan Mountain against which the monastery is built. The valley is well-watered by the Evin River and has long been renowned for its rich vegetation and pasture land. In particular thick groves of native Mongolian cherries have attracted people since ancient times until the present and are the reason for the association of this valley with theologies of fertility, re-birth and gardens of paradise.
