Updated July 26, 2016: Glamping Mongolia Nomad Adventure: Tour remote Mongolia with Mountain Travel Sobek.
As a child, I thought that the most remote place in the world was “Outer Mongolia”. It seemed like an imaginary place like Shangri-La or Brigadoon. However, by the 21st-century, it is very much a real solo travel destination. The best way to go? To travel with an experienced tour operator.
Mountain Travel Sobek is based in California. They have decades of global tour experience. Their main focus is adventure and active travel.
One of the last frontiers to explore far off the typical tourist path! Visit this nomadic culture in many ways still reminiscent of the past days of the Empire. With more sheep than inhabitants and more horses than cars, you will have the chance to step back in time away from your daily routine.
You will travel through the Gobi Desert on camel back. On horseback, you will trek through the taiga forest and meet reindeer herders.
You will get a glimpse of the local Naadam Festival dominated by archery, wrestling, and horse racing.
Days 1-3: You arrive in the capital of Ulaanbaatar to check in at the Ramada Citycenter.
