Venture through the veil on an expedition to Mongolia’s north to experience the life of the nomadic Tsaachin tribe. On the way, explore monasteries, museums and markets in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s capital, then strap in for a drive through the rocky mountain ranges of Ulaan-Uul to the town of Tsagaannuur. Saddle up your Mongolian steed and ride towards Taiga, home to part of the Tsaachin.
Here, you’ll experience everyday life of this nomadic tribe, from milking reindeer and making cheese to witnessing shamanic rituals. After a full day, you’ll slumber in a tepee before waving goodbye in the morning as you head to Jigleg Pass for a boat ride along Khövsgöl Lake and a hike among the surrounding mountains before returning to the capital, feeling a little more blessed and humbled.
Go with Crooked Compass from US$3900.
