Day 1 Arrive at Kharkhorin

Our team will pick you up from anywhere in UB and send you to Kharkhorin, the old capital of the Mongolian Empire. For groups of less than 5 people, we will take you to the public bus to go to Kharkhorin which is the final stop. Our guide will pick you up in Kharkhorin and bring you to a ger camp to have a dinner and relax. For groups of 5 or more, we will rent a private bus for you.

Day 2 Visit of Kharkhorin

After breakfast, you will visit the Erdene Zuu buddhist complex and its wall of 108 stupas, built on the ruins of Karakorum, the ancient capital of the Mongolian Empire. After lunch, you will go to the museum of Karakorum which is probably the best museum of Mongolia. Your guide will tell you more about Karakorum and the Mongolian history. Then, you will leave Kharkhorin to go to the heart of the Orkhon Valley. On the way, you will stop at Urtiin Togoi scenic spot. You will have a dinner and spend the night at Orkhon camp. 

Day 3 The Orkhon Waterfall

The third day is dedicated to kayaking on the Orkhon river. Firstly, you will hike to Ulaan Tsutgalan, the largest waterfall of Mongolia, 7 km away from the camp. On the way you will stop by a nomad family to taste their dairy products and learn more about the nomadic way of life. Once at the waterfall, you will have a lunch and embark on your rafting to descend the river, which is very impetuous on some spots and very calm on others. If you are not comfortable with rafting, you can come back to the camp with our driver. Once at the camp, you can do some fishing, play archery, volleyball, pétanque, or just relax. 

Day 4 Tuvkhun monastery

Early in the morning, you will head towards the Tuvkhun Monastery, founded by the monk Zanabazar in 1648. We will either ride or walk through the forest to the Monastery located on top of the Shireet mountain. After visiting the place and having your lunch, you will return to the bus and head towards Tsagaan Sum about 10 kilometers away from Tuvkhun. There, you will explore the ruins of the Ogodei's palace. 

Day 5 The Gates of Naiman Nuur

The horse riding trip to Naiman Nuur National Park will start from Orkhon Camp. You will first pass by the Orkhon waterfall and continue through larch and pine tree forests to reach Borgiin oroi, nearby the Naiman Nuur mountains. You will set up your campsite and enjoy a campfire for the night. 

Day 6 Khangai Mountain

You will ride through Khangai Nuruu mountain pass and head to the first lake of Naiman Nuur - lake Bugat. After lunch, you will ride through grasslands and forests to reach the largest lake of Naiman Nuur - lake Shireet. You will set up your campsite near the lake for the night.

Day 7 Shireet Lake 

In the morning, you will leave lake Shireet on the other side and start your way back to the camp. You will stop by the river Shuranga to take your lunch. You will reach the camp at dusk and enjoy a good supper and rest in comfortable beds.

On day 8, to recover from your efforts,  you will relax in the hot springs of Mogoit Spa. But before that, you will hike through the forest to the sacred mountain of Tsagaan Khairkhan (the white rock). The hot springs of Mogoit Spa are said to have been discovered by Zanabazar. They contain sulphur and have therapeutic virtues. You can stay in the camp with our driver. In the camp, you can do some fishing, play archery, volleyball, pétanque, or just relax.
