We visited Altai Tavan Bogd National Park with Taskhyn for a trekking and camping trip in August and September 2019 and had an amazing time. Taskhyn is a great guide and he runs a well organised outfit. The park is beautiful and a must do if you’re heading to Mongolia. Would definitely recommend going with Western Altai Tours - you will likely also save quite a bit compared to booking with a UB based company.

Great guide Anwarbek, a local Kazakh man living in the park. Taskhyn was perfectly accommodating in tailoring the tour to my wishes and price range. I could not find a better price. He also helped me get a bus ticket from Russia to Olgii.

A friend and I wished to go skiing in Tavan Bogd. After contacting several outfitters, Tashkyn and Western Altai Tours proved to be by far the most accommodating, going the extra mile to provide us with the experience we wanted. It was the experience of a lifetime, I cannot recommend this tour company enough!

We have only amazing things to say about our experience with Taskhyn and Western Altai Tours. My wife and I visited Mongolia for our honeymoon in August 2018. We were eager to be in nature and with animals, but neither of us had any serious experience camping and hiking. We emailed Western Altai and five other companies who do treks in the Altai region to see if they could put together a low intensity and flexible horse trek for us. It was immediately clear that Taskhyn was the person to go with. For 2 months before we had even committed to using his services, we exchanged email after email ironing out the itinerary, discussing our preferences, asking logistical questions, and negotiating the price. No other company was even close in terms of pricing, flexibility, privacy, and quality, and many of them wanted us to pay deposits way in advance, risking us paying then not getting what was promised to us. Then on the actual trek, Taskhyn exceeded all expectations. He was incredibly kind and patient, making for a great tour guide. We learned so much from him and deeply enjoyed our conversations. He very clearly had a lot of experience and local knowledge, and was able to handle any logistical mishaps with ease. Everything went perfectly according to plan, which after actually visiting and then hearing the experiences of other groups, is very rare. In all, we couldn't have had a better honeymoon, and Taskhyn was the biggest reason why. If you're still not sure about visiting Mongolia, go! And if you're still not sure which tour company to go with, go with Taskhyn. We did a lot of research into the other companies, and from lack of flexibility to straight up fake online reviews and not delivering on their promises, Taskhyn is by far the best choice. Thank you again, Taskhyn!

Great tour with great clients. Actually not the clients brother and sister. It is a bold decision to have a honeymoon in Mongolia instead of having 5 star luxury hotels in Europe of somewhere else. Anyway we enjoyed the tour by giving our services to you! Thank you brother for your positive review. Please come again!

I am more than happy to recommend Taskhyn for your Olgii visit. I went to Mongolia, last year in January, 2017. It was a trip for my 30th birthday, and I spent 7 days in the Western Mongolia, and 7 days in the Gobi desert. For the western part, Taskhyn was my tour guide. It did not take long for me to realise that has a thorough knowledge of the Mongolian history, the tribes and the People of Mongolia. His people skills are really good. He English is very good too, which specially is important because most of the Mongolians outside the capital, do not understand and speak English, so you'd need a good translator. He was very careful about my food requests, as I am a vegetarian. He cooked personally for me every day just to make sure I won't have any surprises or regrets. I personally felt Taskhyn is very passionate with helping travellers coming to Mongolia and showing them the real Mongolia, utterly beautiful and yet so wild in its truest form! Whenever I will go to Mongolia again in future, I definitely want Taskhyn to be my tour guide again.
