MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH JOURNEYS THAT CARE FOR THEIR PEOPLE, THE LAND AND THE FUTURE OF TRAVEL
A CONTRIBUTION WE ARE PROUD OF, TO EMPOWER YOU WITH DECISIONS THAT WILL IMPACT FOR THE BETTER
Travel to contribute is a beautiful thought we deeply care about. This human adventure brings value and service to our guests while giving back to the local community, families of herders in need, raising funds for the children of the countryside, and establishing the future of the next generation without disturbing Nature.
How does it work? For all our trips, each participation includes by default a percentage dedicated to supporting our projects in the countryside each year for the 4 main initiatives we engage with. As we love our people and Nature, we make a point to support those in need both financially but also with communication and various help annually. But what makes it even more special is that we should absolutely respect the environment and leave no trace when traveling. Explore our moving ongoing projects below.
TRAVELING: AN UNPARALLELED EXPERIENCE WITH NOMADS
It is our privilege and honor to represent and introduce some of the last remaining true nomads located in remote and less inhabited regions of the country. Our deepest wish is to welcome travelers from around the world, and giving them the experience of true cultural exchange, and getting answers to reaching a quality standard of living in the countryside, and be staying there very comfortably.

ECO-PRACTICES AND DOMESTIC WASTE MANAGEMENT PROJECT
Gobi Mountain Lake started its journey into tourism by first providing inbound tours. It has been a specialist for trekking and meditation open to many, and active tours for local clubs around the themes of meditation and hiking. During this time our company established a proper way to travel among pristine and virgin places where no one else travels. Click below to read about the project!
The combination and the efforts of several people and minds create more beautiful projects and results than a single person itself. We believe in this concept, and this is also applicable to our relationship with our partners. Together, sharing ideas and the same values on how we see Nature and its own protection lead us to work with talented institutions and associations or companies to make our projects even more successful and beautiful. Today, there is a big advantage to work hand in hand with partners involved into finding solutions on environmental and ecological issues, and combine them into our travel field.
SMILE MONGOLIA CLUB
Originally created by Mr. Boya with the goal of supporting its members involving Meditation and Hiking activities, Smile Mongolia Club, helps local people to remain active and travel in Nature throughout the vast territory of Mongolia. The club is supporting educational traveling and sustainable meditation initiatives. The meditation sessions depend on the ancient Tantric traditions, that were well present in Mongolia centuries ago. While traveling, the club creates a special bond with Nature, brings the benefits of sharing healthy meals and foods, practicing yoga, and get mindfulness through Tantric meditations in deep natural sites. In just a few years of existence, the Club grew to an extensive number of members, bringing together people of various backgrounds from herders to top representatives and high ranks officers of the State. Each and everyone is involved in his/her own way into bringing benefits to others with their various skills and moral support. Growing together, growing healthier would be a good summary of what the club is all about.
"Mongolian Eco-Police, a branch of the State Police trains and gives courses and lectures to companies in order to fulfill an Eco engagement and good practices in order to travel safely and respect Nature. That is how we came to be an official partner of the Mongolian Eco-Police organization, and be responsible for keeping the surroundings clean and exactly the way we have seen it during our journeys. We also engage ourselves in giving advice and education on how to protect the land from pollution and destruction. Gobi Mountain Lake is an official Eco-Police member-ranger for its travel destinations, and recently obtained certification for that matter. We are very proud of our engagement.
“Be Colorful” is a Waste Management NGO with the goal to elevate the waste treatment standards of Mongolia to those of the global conventions, in order to reduce the environmental impact caused by garbage, cooperate with other NGOs and the private sector as well as educate the general population, and to contribute to developing the practice of implementing eco-friendly waste management systems. “Be Colorful” therefore aims for long-term objectives to provide a healthy and clean environment for future generations and maintain an ecological balance, to reduce the global warming effects.
"ARSLAN" MONGOLIAN NATIVE DOG BREEDING CLUB
Arslan Club-Mongolian Bankhar Breeding Club aims to raise Mongolian purebreds with their pure blood, protect their genetic fund, reintroduce them into nomadic herder culture, promote the breed internationally, and register it as an internationally recognized independent breed and it’s expanding as a Mongol Bankhar Federation in Mongolia. The federation currently unites more than 100 official Mongolian Bankhar breeders and it will be active in the future with the aim of becoming a specialized association of Mongolian Bankhar breeds not only in Mongolia but also worldwide.
We are investing in the future of traveling,
with better practices and responsibilities towards human, nature and animals.
