Experience Mongolia by Horseback

On this memorable ride, we travel the sweeping landscapes of Gorkhi Terelj National Park. We cross snaking rivers and follow tracks through open grasslands carpeted with wildflowers, forested slopes and expansive valleys into the dramatic rock formations and granite mountains of Mongolia. This adventure is an out-of-this-world experience for riders seeking a culturally-steeped journey into Mongolia.


Follow in the Hoofprints of the Nomadic Herders

Steeped in History 

Stay in remote tented camps, with one night in traditional yurt-like nomadic ger tents. Buddhist shrines, stone cairns and ancient ruins pepper the trail. During this horse trek we’ll experience the nomadic herder lifestyle and witness the seasonal shift of communities and their herds to summer pastures and vital water sources. Our ride will cover some spectacular terrain, intriguing ancient and historical sites and intimate visits with nomadic families to share stories and meals in communal ger tents.

Wonderful trip. Stone Horse is a very professional organization. The owners Sabina and Keith are great hosts. As well, they personally select the horses, make the saddles and the tack, guide and cook on the trips. I have ridden and been involved with horses for 60 years. Their horses and staff are top notch! It was an amazing experience to ride and see first hand all that Mongolia has to offer. I loved it and I would highly recommend Stone Horse for all future horse adventures in Mongolia.”

This trip starts in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia (airport code: UBN), and finishes in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia (airport code: UBN).

Day 4 Hike

Today’s 9-mile (15 km) hike is rated moderately difficult due to length and the steep downhill at the beginning (with undulating hills for the remainder). It can be technically challenging in places due to wash-out and loose stones. As noted, a shuttle option is available. 

For the alternate hike option, the climb is still challenging and steep with some rocky scrambling, but shorter. Our guide will thoroughly describe both options for those who are concerned but be prepared to sweat! It will be a hot and challenging walk.

The Wild Women Way

If you’re wondering how we roll, it’s together. The Wild Women Way is our modus operandi, our mantra and our rock solid foundation. You can learn more about our Wild Ways HERE.

How We Support You

Ready for a big adventure? We’re in it together. On this trip, we’ll be spending many hours each day in a saddle. We suggest riding regularly for three months before your adventure (Western-style riding lessons would be most appropriate).
