  • Two family ger camps allow you to experience nomadic life from the inside – a rare and rewarding cultural experience to remember
  • Situated in the valley of the Delger River, the Tsenkher Hot Springs offer the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long journey on the road
The Wild Mongolia trip starts from and ends in Ulaanbaatar. It is an adventure trip that takes 15 days taking you through Tsetserleg, Khovsgol Lake, Amarbayasgalant Monastery and 7 other destinations in Mongolia. Wild Mongolia is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Travel to Mongolia and experience the raw beauty and tradition of this remote region. Hidden from the world for so long, it is hard to imagine that this secluded country once created the largest land empire ever known. Unmatched geographical diversity, pristine grasslands, crumbling ruins and roaming herdsmen riding tough Mongolian horses – see it all on this journey through a land that time forgot and travellers are now discovering.

“Had a very good tour. Perfect booking experience. And perfect tour execution. Really all I could have hoped for. The itinerary was neither too rushed nor to loose. Great way to explore Europe and nice to have a guide showing the way.”

Milan's review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“The tour was very good. Overall organisation, local and international, as well. The host family were beautiful and helpful people. The food was very nice and the room simple but precisely what we paid for. Only the second day was a bit slow and not really exciting. But otherwise 4 out of 5.”

Is this trip right for you:
  • Staying mostly in tourist ger camps once outside of Ulaanbaatar, you will experience simple conditions such as outdoor toilets and some nights without hot water. Most gers at the camps sleep up to six people, with comfortable beds and plenty of blankets.
  • At our family ger camps you will be living the same life as the nomads, close to the land and their animals. Beds may be matresses on the floor in a shared ger and there will be no bathroom facilities. This is a true taste of Mongolian life and may be very different from what you are used to. You will need to bring a sleeping bag with you for these stays.
  • Most meals are included once we leave the nation's capital. If you have very specific dietary requirements you will need to let us know well in advance. We will do our best to cater for you, but you may need to be prepared to bring some of your own supplies from home, or stock up at the supermarkets in Ulaanbaatar. Vegetarians can be catered for, though choices may be limited. Some food will be traditional Mongolian style, but as the traditional diet consists solely of meat and dairy products, most meals made for our groups are less challenging and based more on Russian or Western cuisine, which is now also common in the Mongolian diet.
  • This is a trip that includes extensive travelling in some remote terrain away from modern facilities and conveniences. As we spend a lot of time on the road each day, it is important to realise that the emphasis on this trip is on the journey, travelling through amazing landscapes and staying in some stunning locations. As we travel by private transport for the duration of the trip we spend a lot of time together with our group members. If you are looking for an active or independent trip with lots of choice for physical and cultural activities daily then you might want to consider whether this trip is the right one for you. However, if you are keen to explore a fascinating country "road trip" style, take in the scenery as you go and are willing to sit back and enjoy the ride (however long it takes to get there!) then this will definitely add to your experience of our Wild Mongolia trip.
  • Driving times will vary and any times listed in the itinerary are approximate and subject to road (where there is one!) and weather conditions. As we have our own vehicles, it may be possible to make stops along the way for photos, meals or to chat with locals, but we need to aim to get to our destinations before nightfall so please understand that long breaks may sometimes not be possible.
