RIDE WITH WESTERN MONGOLIAN SPIRIT AMONG ITS UNCONQUERED WILDERNESS
HORSE RIDING IN DISTINCT AREAS OF WESTERN MONGOLIA
THE HORSE RIDING EXPERIENCE WITH GOBI MOUNTAIN LAKE
This large country divides into 21 provinces and each one has its own weather conditions and different landscapes with its nomadic tradition and lifestyles. Gobi Mountain Lake chooses for its horse riding tours especially the Western provinces as part of its destination where nature is an undeniable untamed, where people are true to their origin and owners to their home country and it's way different than riding in the central and main touristic areas. The vast majority of western Mongolia 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.
From 1600 and up to 2000 meters high: and it gets cold during the nights, and considered as the coldest winters and even the coldest of all the country. Therefore it naturally takes out the flies and other bugs that may be present in other regions, providing an easier and better experience of riding, also more safe for the common travelers. Especially when horses are bitten by the local “horseflies” as called by the herders, they become more aggressive and making the conditions of riding less safe and sometimes uncontrollable for not too experienced riders. We understood the importance to ride horses in a relaxed way, with happy horses, and making the experience safe for everyone, both for the herders and our guests. Riding in those different territories, far from the crowds and those potential issues, make the experience even better, enjoyable, relaxed, and safe.
Gobi Mountain Lake horseback riding adventures are designed in three distinct regions where each represents truly astounding unrepeatable nature. Hangai Mountain region: A beautiful wide valley for an amazing free ride (riding with the 3 gaits). This is a vast country of open grassland, distanced mountains, small lakes, many rivers, and busy nomadic life. The upper backcountry of Tarbagаtai mountain: to experience large mountains, very tall cliff “deer jumping cliffs”, stormy rivers, holy lakes, pine forests, a very wonderful large panel of sceneries for a more adventurous experience. The national park of the Great Mongol Els sand dunes, with the Gobi Mountain Sand dunes, with unbelievable landscapes and microclimate.
To develop our horse riding tours, we established a long term friendship with the locals, where they take pride to take care of their animals the best possible way, using custom made saddles comfortable both for the animals and humans, so that the trip is a success. We are paying extra care for the wealth of our local people and their horses so that they can develop their own activities and also get a benefit from us and making them more responsible for their role in making this beautiful adventure coming true. Since the company created the Bankhar-native guarding dog project, we support long term plans with the local families, for their own well being and resources, so that they can also join us during the horse riding tours without worrying about keeping an eye on the animals and their home. The reintroduced Bankhar will keep those tasks safe for the family.
