GLOBETROTTING IN MONGOLIA

If you’re an intrepid traveller and thrive on a good adventure then Mongolia is the destination for you. It’s a country that’s still finding its feet in terms of tourism, where itineraries don’t always go according to plan and spontaneity is the order of the day. That aside, horse enthusiasts will be swept up with the spirit of the wild-eyed Mongolian ponies, the far-reaching, infinite steppe and the thrill of roaming a country that is fence-free, where horses are the main mode of transport.

Prepare to drink a lot of vodka, shout ‘Choo Choo!’ to your dreadlocked pony, stay in cozy, traditional gers with your own fireplace and be swept off your feet by the hospitality of the Mongolian people.

The ride coincides with local Naadam festivals, which are a must-see to truly appreciate the mind-blowing culture of the Mongolians. It’s a true highlight to watch child jockeys ride like centaurs across the steppe.

FAST FACTS

breed of horses: local Mongolian working horses between 13 and 14 hands high

pace:  pace varies from a walk through to a canter

riding ability: beginner to advanced. Beginner riders have to be fit and have a lot of trail riding hours under their belt.

accommodation: the accommodation varies throughout the trip, with the majority of the nights spent camping in tents, but there will also be times when you stay in ger camps and hotels at the beginning and end of the ride. A ger camp is a Mongolian version of a motel with traditionally decorated gers for sleeping (usually shared rooms with 4 pax), a separate dining hall and very basic shower and toilet facilities.

PAYMENT OPTIONS

Accepted payment is by credit card only. There is a 2% surcharge on all credit card payments. Since you’ll be paying in a foreign currency, in this case USD, we believe paying via credit card is the most cost effective and easiest option for you.

Why is the price quoted in US dollars?

With our overseas riding destinations (rides other than in Australia), the currency is dictated by our partner in that country. Therefore due to fluctuating exchange rates we have to quote in the same currency.
