Mongol Adventures – Redux

August – September 2015

This past summer I returned to Mongolia for further adventures. Unfortunately I contacted John Williamson at Zavkhan Trekking a few days too late and the last place on his Zavkhan Classic horse trek had already been filled. Four years ago I rode horses for three weeks in the remote Altai region of Western Mongolia and I was impressed with their small-scale, custom treks that take you way off the beaten path.

This year I had to make do with less remote, more touristy treks. To make up for the shorter length, I took two trips; a 7-day horse trek and then a 10-day jeep trek, both organized through Stepperiders, Mongolia, a locally owned company specializing in horse trekking near Ulaanbaatar.
