Mongolian Altai Trek / 15 days 14 nights

Kazakh Tours, trekking, eagle hunting

This fantastic trekking adventure takes place in Western Mongolia, in Altai Tavan Bogd National Park among the snow-capped peaks of the High Altai Mountains, one of the longest mountain chains in Central Asia. In this remote corner where Mongolia, China, and Russia meet, we discover a beautiful swath of untouched wilderness, topped by the 14,000-foot peaks of Tavan Bogd National Park. With Bactrian camels and horses to carry our gear, we camp at alpine lakes, hike to a glacier, explore ancient burial mounds and petroglyphs that are haunting testaments to Mongolia's shamanic traditions, and experience a pristine mountain world where Kazakh nomads still hunt with golden eagles. Join us for a true expedition across trackless terrain - a singular experience for adventurous trekkers.

More about the tour, weather conditions, and recommendations.

It is designed for those who are experienced in mountain hiking and enjoy camping. On trek, we typically hike a total of 5-8 hours a day (8-10 miles), with a stop for a trailside lunch, at altitudes ranging between 6,000 and a maximum of 10,000 feet. In general, the hiking is over relatively flat or rolling terrain, but we do cover a number of miles each day and the trip is expeditionary in nature, even though most of the hikes are not that difficult. Make sure you have properly fitted, broken-in shoes and a good blister kit. Sturdy waterproof boots and gaiters are essential for potential snowy conditions atop Takhilt Pass. For your own enjoyment, we recommend that you make a special effort to be in good physical condition. Daily brisk walking, jogging, or staircase walking is an excellent preparatory exercise. Would recommend to use sleeping bags rated to -15 Celciuse. Our staff cooks and serves the meals, and there is a shared toilet at camp. Treated drinking water is distributed each day on trek.

On Days 3-10, our trek gear is transported between camps by camel and pack horses, and on other days by a 4x4 russian van. We will have a few local horses with us on this hike, for those interested, an occasional short horseback ride to take a break from hiking may be possible, but not guaranteed.

Our overland travel is by 4WD Toyota Land Cruisers and these Japanese jeeps make you feel comfortable across rough roads, bumpy tracks, and open country.

Our crew will consist of up to 8 people, depending on size of group. Our cook prepares Western style meals and we garuantee that you will gain weight. (kidding, but enough food)

Mountain weather is always unpredictable. Come prepared for at least some rain, wind, and some very cold nights and mornings and also dry hot days. Night time temperatures can drop to 30ºF! A dusting of snow is not uncommon here at this northern latitude, even in the summer, and atop Takhilt Pass, we do expect to hike through snowy terrain. That said, there are also many beautifully clear and sunny days with bright blue skies.

Please consider the following 15 days treking tour packing list

 

Luggage storage and load limits

During the Kazakh Tour Trek your main luggage will be loaded to our pack camels. Camels will carry your baggage together with the food and equipment for the trail. Please note that you will not have access to these items until the end of each day as our pack camels will always be ahead of the group. You should therefore bring a day pack in which you can carry personal belongings such as your camera, water and sun screen etc. Domestic flights have limitation on luggage in terms of weight which is 15kg. You would have charged approximately 2.2USD for every extra kg.

Travel to western Mongolia Friendly advice: When traveling to Mongolia, it is important to take into account the vast cultural and language differences between that of your nation and Mongolia. It is possible to travel through Western Mongolia without the use of a travel service, but it is strongly recommended that you use the services of a travel agent for your own convenience and safety. Mongolia is experiencing rapid economic, political, and cultural changes, but is still very much closed to foreigners in the way that mobility through the country and access to certain amenities can be very difficult for a non-Mongolian speaker. By using a travel service such as ours (Kazakh Tours LLC), you can be ensured that your travel through Western Mongolia will be smooth and easy, and that you will experience Mongolia without having to deal with the frustrations and inconvenience with language and cultural barriers that you will experience if you elect not to use a travel service.
