"Following the footsteps of Genghis Khan" 10 - Days Horse Trek

A remarkable horse trekking tour named "Following the footsteps of Genghis Khan". The trip goes back to the 13th Century and experience the life of a Mongolian legend. There is no better way to explore Mongolia on horseback.
Genghis Khan conquered lands riding his 8 light bay horses, which none of his entourage were allowed to touch. But at this time, his geldings are waiting just for you in Khentii National Park- a beautiful combination of forest, mountain, steppe, rivers and lakes. To evoke the spirit and time of Genghis Khan, each participant can wear traditional costume and accessories of the time, while riding through the landscape that has not much changed since the time of Genghis Khan.


We guarantee this trip will be an experience you will never forget.

Thank you for our delightful short travel in Mongolia. Allan & Sarah Kelly from New Zealand. 2012 June

Hi Oyuna.
I'd have to say we had a great tour, really with no problems at all, we had a great driver Zorigo & Boggi was an excellent guide. In my view Boggi really made the difference with her friendly, outgoing & obliging manner & I'd like to commend her to your manager and advise what a real asset you have in her.
Please give our best regards to Boggi & Zorigo and thanks to all for a great tour !!
Cheers

Thank you for our delightful short travel in Mongolia. Most sincerely, Lisa Pearl from USA. 2011 Sep

Dear Oyunaa,
We had a lovely tour with Dawa and Nanida. We enjoyed every minute of their company. Dawa was very knowledgeable and gave us a meaningful appreciation for Mongolian history, culture, and land. I wonder if you could pass along this email to her because I never got to thank her in person. I got rushed into our hotel to confirm our reservation.

Thank you for our delightful short travel in Mongolia. Anna and Tomislav from Sweden 2010 Oct

Dear Tuvshinbat,
We are working a lot since we came back from Mongolia, so we don't have time even to see all the amazing photos we made there. Anyway we would like to thank you one more time for everything you did for us, and for wonderful time you helped us to have in you're country. It was unique experience, Mongolia is a beautiful place, one of the best holidays we had so far, and we would definitely like to visit it again and see and learn more. We are a big commercial for you, and i hope more people will come and share our experience.
And we would also like to express our gratitude for the two lovely people we meet at the station, and whiteout whom we will be probably lost in the mountain or at the black market. :) Ms. Boloroo and you're friend Mr. Sugar are excellent guides and friends.
I hope we will be back and next time we'll meet you as well, and we wish you all the best.

Best regards,
