For me, the highlights of my trip was the horse- riding in the Mongolian countryside and seeing the beautiful landscapes and wild life.
We particularly enjoyed our time staying in ger camps, visiting with Nomad families and touring around the Gobi desert. The unique opportunities to observe Mongolian traditional and culture were wonderful (horse show, Mongolian costumes, horsehead 2- string fiddle player, throat singer… etc) were most memorable and meaningful. Camel and horseback riding, the beautiful sand dunes and the Gobi Desert, all our hikes were also highlights. The Khongor Sand Dunes, Yol valley, the red flaming cliffs, saxual forest- all were stunningly beautiful and unforgettable.
