Overview
Trekking in Mongolia tour is an amazing trek in the western corner of Mongolia where it is bordering with China from its south and with Russia from its north. This area is the Altai mountain. The place where we will do trekking is less traveled by people. It’s difficult to drive there by car or jeep. So, we will pack camels for our all equipment and will start walking through breathtaking landscapes by making a little caravan through Kazakh and Tuvan nomad’s summer camp!

The trip of a lifetime! I took my son on a two week trip to Mongolia. I had worked with Mongolians for several years and had promised to visit their country. I researched travel companies and settled on Western Mongolia Tours. It was a great choice. Gabiden Bolatbek was our guide as well as the owner of the tour company. He and his team were so gracious, personable and knowledgeable. I felt well cared for, comfortable and safe throughout my trip. Everything was taken care of! Gabiden was especially kind with my sixteen year old son who had not travelled outside of the United States. He took the time to explain our excursions and made changes respecting my son's requests. We had the most amazing experiences- staying with an Eagle Hunter's family, horseback riding with an eagle, riding camels, visiting monasteries. I could write all day there was so much to see and do. Gabiden found unusual things for us to do!! We attended a horse race which was amazing. 12km race featuring young teen jockeys. It was a great way to really experience Mongolian life. We also got to see a festival in Ulgii where students were displaying projects that they had completed in school. I am an educator and really got great pleasure out of interacting with the students. It was amazing! In Ullan Baatar we experienced Mother and Children's Day in the square and had lunch with many big families in a nearby restaurant. I cried, it was so beautiful to see how families are celebrated in Mongolia. We also stayed in a Ger Camp where we got to eat with the owner and have Mongolian barbecue. We were showed how to prepare the lamb with rocks and I intend to try this at home. My son, who had not wanted to stay in a ger, ended up loving gers at the end of the trip. The most amazing thing was driving across the terrain. No roads, no road signs- and yet we always arrived where we were supposed to. I loved the Russian van! Perfect for the area. Gabiden and his father (our driver) always kept the vehicle running which was fascinating. We saw so many animals! Gazelle, camels, sheep, goats, eagles, etc. I highly recommend Western Mongolia Tours and Gabiden Bolatbek. He will work with you to make your tour special and his team is outstanding! I could write all day about our amazing trip; it was that good! I will always love Mongolia.

First off, great experience, the best service in a very difficult place to get service. I didn’t go on a tour but stayed with an eagle hunter and his family. This is the only way to truly experience the Kazakh life. Not easy, no frills but an experience that can’t be duplicated. The eagle hunter was the best, we got game every day which to be honest is unusual. If we got nothing, my experience would have been complete simply watching and riding with the greatest horseman in the world. Be prepared, this is not a trail ride! If you know the story of the huntress, that’s the family I stayed with! Wonderful people, hospitable to a fault, always focused on family. Go before you can’t! Joe

We got in touch quite late but right from the beginning, Baldyrgan the owner of Western Mongolia Tours was very responsive. We received replies to any questions really quickly and WMT provided us with extra sleeping bags as we did not have any. Arriving by plane on day 1 the team was waiting and we were ready to go. We had a great team: guide, driver, cook. We chose to travel to Altai Tavan Bogd National Park, covering the White River Valley, Potania Glacier (to which we travelled by horse and camel with a group of ver experienced Tuva guides), Malchin Peak. It snowed and we got quite cold so instead of the tent, our guide got a Ger for all of us. This was'nt included in the itinerary but one of those extra unexpected things that made the trip great. The lakes, petroglyphs, dear stones and some stunning views followed. We also stayed with a friednly eagle hunter family. Baldyrgan and his team are very experienced, and know many of the people along the the way really well. This makes the journey smoother and opened doors for us. An impromptu visit to a family along the way ended up being a really nice afternoon, asking questions and eating local delicacies and drinking Mongolian Vodka made with cheese! We had some tasty food prepared by Danko who is a great cook and was always cheerful even very early on pretty cold rainy mornings! Bano, our guide, was really knowlegeable and also patient with us as we climbed Malchin Peak at our inexperienced slow pace. Our driver was used to the route & navigated difficult terrain with the russian van (a vehicle he was very familiar with) with relative ease. This was pretty reassuring and meant that we could actually enjoy the off-road trip as well. The journey was very well prepared and the team was clearly experienced and had packed and been provided by WMT with all the right things even when we had not thought of them. Returning to Olgii we had an extra few days and Baldyrgan went out of his way to help us out, show us around and bring us to the airport. We felt well cared for. We can really recommend Western Mongolia Tours as an experienced professional company.

My father and I recently travelled to Western Mongolia (July 2019) and engaged Baldygran and his team to help us with our tour. Our tour was amazing. The food was second to none, the itinerary was perfect, and the driver (a challenging drive it is!) kept us safe and sound as we travelled across the Altai Mountains. Baldygran's contacts in the Kazhak community are fantastic, and we were able to experience the true Eagle Hunter experience (rather than something mocked up just for tourists) and made some wonderful friends within the Kazhak community. Through Kumesbek (one of the Eagle Hunters), we were extended an invitation to a Kazhak wedding, which was definitely not on the itinerary. Could not fault this experience and cannot recommend Baldygran and Western Mongolia Tours more highly.
