This ride of approximately 200km begins at Tsenkher village in Arkhangai Brass & silver kettle at Bogd Khan Museum ŠOTMTprovince. We ride and up into the mountains through a remote and beautiful landscape where the only inhabitants are nomadic families with their herds of horses, yaks and sheep. The scenery is quite dramatic, especially at the Orkhon waterfall. Ride over the mountains to return to Kharkhorin, site of Genghis Khan's capital in the thirteenth century. There is a large monastery here, Erdene Zuu, the original centre of Buddhism in Mongolia.

The riding distance is approximately 25km per day. You will be supplied with Russian saddles, and the local horsemen will take care of the horses. At Kharkhorin you will stay at a traditional ger camp, and all other nights will be camping in Western style dome tents.
