Discovery to the Far West Mongolia Tour

14 days from $2500

Perfect jeep over landing discovery tour, just another option of the “Travelling to the far west Mongolia” program. Here the route is drawn down to the south from the middle of the program and it ends in Ulgii town of Bayan-Ulgii province. We circled the program in 16 days to make it available for time-limited adventurers. In general, people know that the landscape elevation rises up towards the west part of Mongolia comprising the high mountain ranges of Altai and Khangai. But do all people know that we also can find golden sand dunes as well as fantastic views of sparkling lakes nestled between the sandhills there? Along this trip, you have an opportunity to discover all those beauties in a very peaceful way. You will constantly meet local people of different Mongolian ethnic groups, which are as different as you go further to the west. This is a very rewarding trip to a part of Mongolia rarely been visited by foreigners yet.
