Khunu Explore: Arkhangai Journeys

February 19, 2020

Note: In light of the Covid-19 outbreak Khunu Explore trips are currently being reviewed. We hope to provide more information once the longer-term situation becomes clearer. 

We will travel by foot, horse, river and vehicle to see this incredible region. You will herd yaks, collect fibre, enjoy incredible sunsets and immerse yourself in all the region has to offer.

We begin our journey in the capital Ulaan Bataar where we’ll spend one night before heading west to Arkhangai Aimag, an eight-hour drive across the scenic Mongolian steppe. Along the way we’ll visit the Erdene Monastery, site of Ghengis Khan’s ancient capital, before arriving at our private ger camp for a traditional Mongolian dinner prepared by our own chef.

The following morning we begin learning the ways of Arkhangai herders, starting with some basic horse riding lessons (from some of the finest riders in the world), followed by an afternoon herding yaks before returning to our ger camp late afternoon.

The next day we leave the ger camp on foot and head out on a three day rafting trip along the Tamir River. Each evening we will camp on the riverbanks, fish for supper, and enjoy time away from the pressures of the modern world. Expect tranquillity, wide vistas, and big open skies.

The next two days will be spent back at our ger camp where you will be given the opportunity to horse trek, explore the local mountains on foot, or just learn more about the traditional ways of herder life.

On day nine we begin our drive back to Ulaan Bataar, stopping on route for a picnic lunch in Mongolia’s famously scenic countryside. We will be staying outside of the capital at Tur Hurah, an old villa built during the Soviet era and owned by celebrated writer and academic Jack Weatherford. Tur Hurah is a great place to relax, walk the local hills and visit the capital, which is only a 40-minute drive away. A car and driver will at your disposal for day trips to the capital and the nearby Genghis Khan statue on the Tuul River.

On day ten its time to say goodbye to Mongolia, complete with a Khunu gift pack and what we hope will be many happy memories.
