TRIANGLE MOUNTAIN TREK

The Ride brings you to the North-West side of our camp. Following along the river, it naturally leads to a green step towards the rocks of the Tarbagatai mountain range. On this path, the nature seems changing uncovering green sceneries and mountains, and as we go up the streams of the river, we progress to higher grounds. The view finally unveils a stunning panorama over the region as we are reaching up to 2600m above sea level.

The trek is about 10km total (both ways) only, but as being one of the first of your explorations of the high Mongolian mountains, the ascent here will be approx. 750m which is quite a lot. The hike itself will take about a full day with beautiful stops along the way, taking the time to enjoy Nature and with a delightful picnic about half way. Your exercise will be a quite smooth experience for this first ever approach of your adventure.

Generally, the trails are built from the valley up and back down to the same spots, which give flexibility to every trekker who wants to stop the adventure earlier than the rest of the group and be back to the support vehicle to enjoy further rest. If they want, driven back to camp, to gather around and discuss the preparation of the next adventures, and joy the nomads or see the surroundings freely. The vehicle turns back to get back the final group back to the camp. So we are quite flexible and respectful upon your needs, especially understanding this will be your very first ride or trek closer to high mountains.

It is a unique ride, which pleases you totally to a very remote spot, where you can see only birds, running marmots along with the fields, and in the wild, horses or from time to time deer running away from us, with only the empty mountains surrounding us.

This is a pleasure to ride here, which features beautiful long valleys, crossing rivers, and riding along the ridges of the flat mountains until reaching the head of the valley, and riding up to a small lake at 2500m, the highlight of this ride. The car cannot pass this high and will be waiting for us and the kitchen and a delicious meal before the last ascent to the lake itself. A wonderful panorama facing the valleys, resting with our companions and horses.
