How do I even begin describing this magical experience? We booked a 3 day Train to Ger programme because Keith offered what we felt was a fair price. Many other companies were charging prohibitive amounts because we were traveling in a pair. Anyway, our stay with Yadmaa and Davasuren was pure bliss. I felt like we were stripped down to... More

In August I rode for 10 days with Stone Horse Tours across the steppes and rivers of Gorkii Terelj National Park and the taiga forest and mountains of Han Khentii Wilderness Area. I worked in Mongolia between 2002 and 2008, but didn’t had the chance to immerse myself in Mongolia’s glorious landscape without trucks and endless driving. I highly, highly... More

Thanks Susan for your comments. It is an extraordinary landscape and going deep into the wilderness "way way" off the usual trekking path, is what we really enjoying taking guests on. As an ecologist, it was great to have you on the trip and talk about the natural phenomena around us as we traveled. You can come back anytime. More

What was intended to only be a brief stop over ended up being one of the highlights of our China - Russia trip. A truly once in a lifetime, unforgettable experience. After months of extensive research into the best places to stay and things to do in Mongolia, we struggled to find something that would cater to what we were... More

Earlier this year, after research and reading reviews, we chose to use Stone Horse as our tour operator for our September trip to Mongolia and we booked the 3 day "Train to Ger" stay. Unfortunately, the day we arrived, my wife came down with a sudden and very severe case of tonsillitis. Keith and Oggi were both extremely helpful having... More

Thanks for your comments. We know all too well what it's like to be traveling to a new or different country and become ill. It's not pleasant. We'll do whatever we can to help our guests find the proper medical help and make them as comfortable as possible. I'm glad we were able to get you out to see some... More

The only mode of travel to really enjoy Mongolia is by horse and Keith and Sabine of Stone Horse Expeditions are the perfect guides to steer you across the wild steppes. I spent more than a week trekking across the Gorki-Terelj National Park on my trusted speed Jerry, just one of a dozen or so carefully picked Geldings owned by... More

Thanks for the review. We try hard to make it "the way it should be done". We look for the best equipment, work with really good people here in our staff and spend a lot of time working with our horses to make sure we have the best possible for our trips. Really glad you could join us. It was... More

We had the pleasure of staying with Yadmaa and Davasuren for a couple of days, and we had a very nice time. Both of them are very hospitable, though language is an issue, making you feel very comfortable and safe. Davasuren is an excellent cook, and took very good care of us. The spot is awesome and the autumn colors... More

Thanks for alerting us to this experience. We take all comments about our business seriously and will look into what happened to ensure there is no repeat of this type of service. As the owner/operator, I am out with every long horse ride in the back country. We try very hard to offer the highest standard of service possible under... More

My wife and I have just completed our two week horse trekking experience into the Gorkhi-Treij National Park and had a great time. This is an outdoor adventure of the purest kind: we enjoyed silence, stars, clear air, crisp frosty mornings, rich blue skies and some wonderful horses. An excellent antidote to fast living and noisy city life. Stone Horse... More

This was a great trip and a good end to our longer horse riding expeditions for the season. Both of you did really well and handled the wide variety of weather and temperatures we experienced with ease. We'll keep you posted on future trips. More

We just returned from an 8-day trip to the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park. I joined my two grown daughters to share in our love of horses on this adventure. I was somewhat apprehensive as it had been over 30 years since I had ridden or camped. We enjoyed some undisturbed time in the beautiful Mongolian countryside, and after the second day... More

It was nice having the three of you on the trip. It was such a nice time to be out in the park, and all of you handled the horses so well. It's was great to still hear wolves around when we were deeper in the park wilderness area. They always add some flavor to a trip. You guys can... More

Keith and Sabine managed to make the trip delightful, fun, and fascinating for everyone. They made sure to spend time connecting with all the guests. With a maximum group size of 6, this can be done daily. From the outset, it was clear that we were in amazing hands, and that we could enjoy the trip stress-free. The equipment was... More

Incredible 8 days touring the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park in September - truly a trip of a lifetime! Our trip began meeting Oggie in Ulaanbaatar. Oggie was amazing - she ensured everything was organized and even took us around the city (and waited patiently while we went souvenir shopping). As a novice camper and someone who hadn't ridden in quite sometime,... More
