End of the afternoon we will drive around in the area. We will visit the picturesque ruins of a small monastery that are hidden in a nice little protected valley.

4th day

After a breakfast, we will start driving towards the Gobi desert. Today we will see the landscape changing dramatically from the fertile grassland to the inhospitably rocky land. The number of families and cattle we will see along the road will gradually reduce. Camels will slowly replace cows.

We will head for Saigan Ovoo Sum. This little town is located along a small desert river (Ongiin Gol) at the entrance of a beautiful mountainous region. A little further southward along the river, we will find Hoshuu Monastery and spend the night here.

5th day

After the long and intensive trip of the day before, we will enjoy the peace and beauty of the Delger Khangai Mountains. We will explore the ruins of Hoshuu Monastery on one side of the river and the ruins of Ongiin Monastery on the other side of the river. We will hike around in this massive series of rocky hills cut by the river.

For those willing to do more ATV, we'll organise a drive in the totally flat area of the Gobi Desert.

We will spend a second night here before facing a second driving intensive day back to the North.

6th day

Today we will drive to the small desert town of Olziit.

7th day

Our destination of today will be Khujirt village that is well known for its hot water spring. To reach this place, we will have to head nearly 300 km (8 hours) more northwards. We will pass through Arvaikheer, capital city of Ovorkhangai province and some other small countryside towns.

8th day

Today we will drive until the Orkhon waterfalls, which is located in the Orkhon valley. The area surrounding the waterfall is a green, with forest covered mountainous area. The valley is known as the cradle of the Mongolian civilization. Many ancient Mongolian as well as Turkish monuments lie within its borders. On the way we will see some ancient graves.

In the afternoon we will hike around the waterfalls. We will hike down to the bottom of the gorges.

9th day

We will drive up the mountain to reach Tuvshin Monastery.

10th day

In the evening we will reach Tsenkher hot spring resort. Managed by Japanese this resort has a large open-air pool at its customer's disposal. The hot water of the pool flows continuously in from the hot water spring. At the spring, the temperature of the water is over 80 ° C. A complex pipelines system regulates the water temperature.

Some will spend hours sitting in the pool talking to their friends while staring at the stars or scanning the nightly nature around them.

11th day

In the morning we will head for Kharkhorin (also called Karakorum, 130 km, 4 hours driving), site of the 13th century capital of the Mongolian Empire created by Chinggis Khan. Very little is left from this legendary city. In the 16th century, Mongolia's biggest Monastery was build from the ruins of Kharkhorin. Now Erdene Zuu Monastery are the remains of what once was a huge monastery of 100 temples and about 1.000 lamas residencing there.

We will explore the grounds of Erdene Zuu Monastery surrounded by its massive 400 m X 400 m walls. We will be guided around the 3 remaining temples: Dalai Lama, Zuu of Buddha and Lavrin Temple. We will also see the Turtle Rock and the Phallic Rock.

We will spend the night in a ger camp.

From here we leave for Khustai Nuruu National Park located about 100 km southwest from Ulaanbaatar. It was established in 1993 and protects today the Takhi, the Mongolian's wild horses, also known as the Przewalski horses.

The Takhi became extinct in the middle of the 20th century. They then could only be found in the zoos. Special breeding programs increased their numbers. From 1993, with the assistance from international environmental agencies, the Takhi horses were reintroduced in Mongolia. Today there are about 150 Takhi horses in Khustai.

After arrival at the camp of the Khustai Nuruu National Park we will meet the staff of the park and be introduced to the project.
