Company profile: For 10 years Zavkhan Trekking has been exploring the remotest corners of Mongolia (and more recently Afghanistan) on horse back, working with the local people. Each year we explore new routes and are looking for adventurers to join us for some seriously exciting riding. You will have plenty of opportunity to be a part of the fascinating nomadic culture, as you ride through mountains, forests and steppe. Treks are accompanied by a western guide and we cater for all levels of riding experience.
Destination Profile: Mongolia is the ultimate horse trekking destination, a vast land of forested mountains and wide open steppe with almost no roads and no fences (or gates to open!). With no private ownership of land you are free to ride and camp anywhere. The local people in the countryside are still mainly nomadic herdsmen, moving with their herds of horses and yaks, and flocks of sheep and goats. Their hospitality to strangers is legendary. The climate ranges from pleasantly warm during the summer to incredibly cold in winter, but it is almost always sunny hence the name 'Land of Blue Sky'.
About the horses: Mongolian horses are small but amazingly tough. They are not shod and are left to fend for themselves during winter, are lovely-natured.
