Across the steppe as a true Mongolian horseman
This adventure will offer you the opportunity to experience horseman’s life for the time of a trek. Indeed you will join horsemen to help them herding Stepperiders horses. There are over 200 horses that have to be herd from Stepperiders’ camp to winter camp. This journey will take them one month, but you will join them for 5 days.
Horse herding has been done for centuries and is necessary to provide enough grass to the horses to survive the tough winter. The summer camp hills have been grazed and it is time for this area to rest and re-grow until next summer. The winter camp will ensure good conditions to the horses who will experience temperatures going below -40C.
If you like adventure and horses and are not afraid from the cold, this trek is perfect for you! It will be a total immersion in a life far from the ordinary! You will end with the visit of Terelj National park, celebrating the end of your trek in a warm ger with the other participants.
The weather can be tough in October, this is why you will be followed by a support vehicle, to allow you to rest and warm up when it becomes too difficult.
