Mongolia Redux – The Horse Trek

August-September 2015

Since a long horse trek in the Zavkhan was out, I chose to go with Stepperiders, a Mongolian owned horse trekking outfit. They have a beautiful Ger Camp outside of UB and own over 300 horses. If you want to buy a horse and gear and trek solo, they are the people to go to. For me, though, I found their trek a bit too tame. I guess I was spoiled from the Altai trek I took before. For seven days we camped out in beautiful wilderness areas, but several times we had to traverse paved roads and pass close to cities to reach the national parks or monasteries. Though, if you have spent little time on horses or in the Mongolian wilderness, then it will be one of your peak experiences.
