Orkhon Valley - Mongolia

Experience Level

Ger Trail

5 star rating   5 September 2019

Both the riding in the Bayan Gobi desert and in Orkhon Valley can be described as truly unforgettable! All our horses had strong stamina, were sure-footed and passed through various terrains with such an ease! Each one of them had different character and nature but we didn't face any problems at all and the riding in all paces was just fantastic. I really enjoyed the fast gallops!! I definitely can say that the horsemen took a great care for their horses and for us, the riders, throughout the whole trip. The Mongolian people respect the horse's wild nature and once on the saddle, you can actually feel the connection of you and the animal, a connection built without any trainings, demands, lessons or restraints! This is what I call beautiful!

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

I think that some accommodation facilities were better than others. For example, the Eco Ger camp or the camp in the forest were really good! The service and food there were excellent. Other camps that are accommodating more tourists were a little bit too crowded (at dinner or breakfast) and the condition of the yurts was not so good. I am personally afraid of insects, so this was a problem I had to deal with some of the nights as some yurts were full with bugs. But as an overall, I would say that the accommodation was fine.
