If you are looking for an off the beaten path destination, Mongolia is the place to go. Our Mount Khuiten (14,350’) and Peak Nairandal (13,714’) climb has been a huge success the past three years and we are looking forward to doing it again! The trip starts in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar where we will do a day of sightseeing before flying west to Bayan Olgii. From Olgii we drive overland across the steppes, traversing grasslands and rivers until we arrive at the Park Entrance where the Bactrian (2 hump) camels will be waiting to help us with our trek to the base of the Altai Mountains. The climb of Mount Khuiten is a blast. What an interesting area!
If you would like to enjoy more of the Mongolian culture and can spare a few more days, our Mount Khuiten Expedition perfectly coincides with the famous Naadam Festival that occurs each year just outside of Ulaanbaatar, making it easy to take in some traditional Mongolian horse racing, archery, and wrestling! And, if you need even more, we can also assist you to visit the Gobi Desert after the climbing portion of the expedition. If you have thought about Mongolia but can’t wrap your head around how to get there, get in touch with us and we can help make it happen!
