Day 1: Ulaanbaatar
Sainbainuu! Welcome to Mongolia. You can arrive at any time before your group meeting at 6 pm. Please have your passport, insurance and next of kin information ready to give to your leader at this meeting. Afterwards you'll have the option to join your fellow travellers for dinner at a local restaurant. If you arrive in town earlier and have time, be sure to get out and explore 'UB', a fascinating town where elderly Mongolians in traditional dress mingle with the nation's young business elite. A great place to start is Gandan Khiid, Mongolia's largest and most important monastery. The Fine Arts Museum, Winter Palace Museum of Bogd Khan and Intellectual Museum are also well worth visiting.

Accommodation: Hotel

Optional Activities:
- Fine Arts Museum - MNT5000
- Gandan Monastery - MNT4000
- National History Museum - MNT5000
- Winter Palace Museum of Bogd Khan - MNT5000

Special Information:
Due to the fact that much of Ulaanbaatar's infrastructure lacks regular maintenance, you may only have sporadic access to hot water at our hotel.

Day 2: Amarbayasgalant Monastery
Today your adventure begins as you drive out through the beautiful Mongolian countryside (approximately 9 hours). Most of the drive today is on paved roads, but be prepared for some bumps after the final turnoff to the the remote Amarbayasgalant Khiid. Your leader and drivers will be glad to teach you some basic Mongolian words on the way – a great way to prepare for interactions with the locals, few of whom speak English. Your final destination today is Mongolia's second most important place of worship (after Gandan Monastery in UB), situated in the beautiful Iven Gol River valley, at the foot of Burengiin Mountain, in the Selenge province. After seeing the monastery, you will get your first taste of life in a ger at the first camp of the trip. This is the way that the majority of Mongolia's population has always lived – away from the city and in the wide open spaces of seemingly endless countryside. It's the quintessential Mongolian experience. Although such camps are set up for visitors, this type of housing is still used around the country, even in the capital where you will have seen many 'ger suburbs' surrounding the city centre.

Accommodation: Ger Camp
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Included Activities:
Amarbayasgalant - Monastery

Day 3: Selenge River
Continue to the lovely Selenge River via the copper mining town of Erdenet (approximately 8 hours). There may be opportunities to spot some interesting wildlife along the way, such as marmots and many different species of birds. You will arrive at your ger camp in the settlement of Unit in the afternoon. Stretch your legs on arrival and take a walk up to the Togoo Uul (Pot Mountain) – an extinct volcano looming over the surrounding steppe. The hike to the top rewards you with views of the crater's lush interior. From this vantage, you can only imagine what this incredible landscape must have looked like millions of years ago.

Accommodation: Ger Camp
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Included Activities:
Selenge - Uran Togoo hike

Day 4: Selenge River
Today your journey (approximately 9 hours) brings you to the mountainous outskirts of Ikh Uul for your first stay with a local nomad family. This is a rare opportunity to see how modern Mongolian nomads are preserving an ancient way of life while embracing some elements of modernity. You will be welcomed into the family ger and shown traditional Mongolian hospitality, starting with a bowl of salty milk tea and perhaps some aaruul (dried curds). This evening you will help your hosts prepare dinner – maybe some buuz (steamed dumplings) or barbecue. Your hosts may teach you some Mongolian games, such as shooting arrows from a bow in the local style. Many nomad families keep animals, so don't be surprised if there is some interaction with goats, dogs, horses and sheep. The location is remote, with no nearby settlements or light pollution. The night sky is incredible in clear weather, so be sure to do some stargazing before retiring for the evening.

Accommodation: Family Ger Stay (1 night)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Special Information:
As the conditions are very basic here this family stay may be a culture shock for some. There are no toilet facilities as such; your leader will point you in the right direction of the 'bathroom'. You will sleep in a mattress on the floor of one of the family's gers. It can get very chilly here in the evenings, so warm clothes are essential. There is also a one-camera policy on these homestays, which makes for a more immersive engagement with hosts and minimises intrusion. This is one way you can live the philosophy of responsible travel while in Mongolia. (Photos can be copied and shared among the group back in UB.)

Day 5: Lake Khovsgol
Enjoy breakfast with our host family and bid them farewell. It's another long day of driving today, across some rough terrain, to Khovsgol Lake (approximately 9 hours). Some say this is Mongolia's most beautiful destination, a pristine wilderness area that's home to many ethnic minorities. It boasts spectacular scenery with stunning fir forests, lush green grasslands and meadows peppered with wildflowers. Since it is a popular destination for both foreign tourists and local holiday makers, you will likely come across other travellers here, especially in the peak travel months of June and July. You'll stay in a tourist ger camp just near the lake. Settle in for the night and sleep well, because there are plenty of optional activities to choose from tomorrow.

Accommodation: Ger Camp
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Optional Activities:
Boat hire per hour Khovsgol Lake - MNT10000

Day 6: Lake Khovsgol
Today you might like to hike up to one of the nearby peaks or perhaps take a boat trip out on the lake. Explore on foot and relax on one of our few days not on the road. All of these are great ways to experience this gorgeous region. Overnight in the tourist ger camp again tonight.

Accommodation: Ger Camp
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Special Information:
While you're here the camp staff might offer you the option to visit a local settlement of reindeer herders. These reindeer are brought to Lake Khovsgol from other regions so that the herders can benefit from tourism. This area, however, is not ideal for these animals, as they are native to much colder climates. For this reason, Intrepid does not recommend or support this activity.

Day 7: Shine Ider
On Day 7 you will set off early to drive back through the town of Murun, and on to Shine Ider (approximately 10 hours). Here you will enjoy the second family stay of your trip. Now that you know what to expect from a Mongolian homestay, you should feel more comfortable the second time around. Get to know your hosts as you help them prepare dinner. You might even have the chance to watch as the family's livestock are milked and herded.

Accommodation: Family Ger Stay (1 night)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8: Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake
On Day 8, after breakfast with the family, you'll drive to the surreal Lake Terkhiin Tsagaan, aka the Great White Lake (approximately 7 hours). This natural volcanic lake, surrounded by mountains, is a surreal and memorable sight. Using the tourist ger camp at Maikhan Tolgoi as a base, you will drive up to one of the volcanic craters and hike to the top for spectacular views. There are plenty of nice trails to walk during your two-night stay here, so make the most of this relaxing break from the road.

Accommodation: Ger Camp
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9: Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake
Spend another day enjoying your time at the Great White Lake.

Accommodation: Ger Camp
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10: Tsenkher
On Day 10, travel to the Tsenkher Hot Springs (approximately 6 hours). These are situated in the valley of the Delger River. On the way, you'll stop at Tsetserleg, a provincial town with a local market and a unique little museum housed in a former temple, which you'll visit with a local guide. At this stop, there's the chance to wander around the town for a glimpse at what provincial Mongolian life is like. Perhaps stock up on some snacks and drinks for the travels ahead. If there is time and the connection is good, you can also visit an internet cafe to get in touch with friends and family back home. From here it's about another hour to the hot springs, where you'll check into the tourist ger camp on arrival.

Accommodation: Ger Camp
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Included Activities:
Tsetserleg - Local Museum

Day 11: Tsenkher
Today is a free day to relax, explore, or simply laze about in the thermal waters of these invigorating natural hot springs. Be sure to pack your swimwear so you can take part in this activity. Surrounded by the remote beauty of the landscape, this location is perfect for slowing down to a more meditative pace and taking it easy. There are also optional hikes and activities on offer if you'd prefer something more active.

Accommodation: Ger Camp
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Included Activities:
Tsenkher - Hot Springs

Day 12: Karakorum / Khogno Khan
Continue to Karakorum (approximately 4 hours), a town built by the legendary Genghis Khan in the 13th century. Ask your leader and drivers to tell you some stories about this great man on the way – after all, he's the nation's hero. In Karakorum you will visit the first Buddhist centre of Mongolia, the immense Erdene Zuu Monastery. This impressive walled compound retains much of its former glory, and within it you can inspect the three temples, each one dedicated to a different stage of a Buddha's life – child, adolescent and adult stages. Later in the afternoon, you will drive to the Khogno Khan Mountains, the location of your tourist ger camp tonight.

Accommodation: Ger Camp
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Included Activities:
Karakorum - Erdenezuu Monastery & Museum

Day 13: Karakorum / Khogno Khan
Just nearby Karakorum is a sudden strip of sand dunes – a striking contrast to the landscape you have just travelled through. Here you will enjoy a camel trek along the dunes – an ideal way to experience this eye-popping landscape. At your ger camp, there might be the opportunity to practice the art of Mongolian archery under the tutorage of some local experts. It's certainly much harder than it looks, requiring good strength and aim! The afternoon is yours to spend as you please.

Accommodation: Ger Camp
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Included Activities:
Khogno Khan - Camel ride

Optional Activities:
Archery at Ger Camp - MNT5000

Day 14: Ulaanbaatar
Travel back across the rolling grasslands to Ulaanbaatar (approximately 8 hours). The route will take you past 'ovoos' (roadside shrines) and ger suburbs. Arriving in the metropolis, you'll check back into your hotel. Depending on the arrival time, there might be the chance to shop for some local handicrafts such as cashmere and felt products, or check out some more of the city's sights and museums. Tonight you can celebrate your journey around Mongolia by witnessing a special cultural performance featuring throat singing and traditional dancing. There will be an optional final dinner at a local restaurant recommended by your leader.

Accommodation: Hotel
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Included Activities:
Ulaanbaatar - Cultural Performance

Day 15: Ulaanbaatar
Say 'bayartai' to your group as your adventure draws to a close. There are no activities planned for the day, and you're free to depart the hotel at any time before 12 noon. If you'd like to stay longer in UB, it's recommended that you book additional accommodation well in advance.

Meals Included: Breakfast

Die Organisation der Reise war ausgezeichnet, die Reiseführerin bestens vorbereitet und die Fahrer der Vans fantastisch. Die Reise war ein großes Erlebnis und wir bekamen einen bleibenden Eindruck von der Größe des Landes, der liebenswerten Menschen dieses Erdteiles und der unglaublichen Pracht der unendlichen Natur.

Zu empfehlen für Menschen, die Natur lieben, lange und komplizierte Autostrecken nicht scheuen und auch einmal auf den üblichen Komfort des Lebens verzichten können.
