Observe wild horses’ last species in Hustai National Park
Horseback riding is the best way to explore a place while being totally immersed in nature. You will be taken through Mongolia’s vast steppes, off the beaten trails, until you reach the famous Hustai National Park. On the way you will discover lands where nomadic families have been raising their horses, sheep and yaks for centuries. When in the need of a short break, you will stop to meet them and share some tea or fermented mare milk (airag). During this trip you will ride across rivers, green hills and grass land and camp on the river side.
Once you reach Hustai, you will explore the park to find the famous Takhi. It is the last species of true wild horses in the world who has never been domesticated. Saved from extinction and reintroduced in the wild in the late 80’s, the takhi is still an endangered species. It is only in Mongolia you’ll have the chance to observe them in the wild.
This park is also the home of red deers, wild boars, grey wolves, lynx and many more. If you look up the sky you might even see a golden eagle or one of the 200 species of birds sheltered by this park.
During this trek, we will ride about 40-45km per day and be supported by a logistic vehicle and cook.
Duration: 5 days / 4 nights
7 days / 6 nights also available – Extension of 2 days in the Bogd Khan Uul National Park
