AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE - AT YOUR OWN PACE - THE WONDERFUL LANDSCAPES OF THE WEST
HIKING AND TREKKING IN WESTERN MONGOLIA
Western Mongolia brings awesome hiking and trekking places and opportunities to nature lovers. Its diverse wilderness runs along the Khangai and the Altai Mountain range. Between the north-western end of the Khangai Mountains and the western summit of the Altai Mountains, it passes through the Great Mongol Sands National Park and Kharhiraa-Turgen Mountain National Park. The vast majority of the trek is situated within the designated wilderness and lies almost entirely at or above 5,000-8,000 feet (1,500-2,400 m) in elevation. The trek has been described as Mongolia's most undiscovered trail and one of the most remote places in the country.
With some of the most off-the-beaten-track routes, you can choose from a wide range of locations to challenge yourself and bring you closer to the culture and wilderness of Mongolia. Our responsible travel guidelines have been developed to ensure our treks to have a minimal impact on the culture, environment, and community, saving the beauty of this nature for future generations and travelers. Whether it’s camping in semi-permanent campsites to discourage logging in western Mongolian high mountains, sand dunes, to hiring local guides, porters, cooks, and pack horses or camels, your presence on one of our trekking trips means that you are helping the local community to grow and to develop itself both economically and environmentally.
Gobi Mountain Lake offers journeys for all levels of trekkers, from the beginners to the pros, from a small and moderate hike to a challenging trek. Our treks and hikes will take you to some of Mongolia’s most remote and beautiful locations.
