KHARKHIRAA TREK - Uvs Province has some of the most pristine and spectacular countryside in Mongolia. Remote and wild, the area around the Kharkhira Mountains provides the ideal terrain for trekking. This trek follows routes of nomadic herders, through lush meadows and up over high passes to glacial valleys and lakes.

Arrive in Ulaanbaatar, where you will visit the city's National museum and enjoy a music performance and welcome dinner. Then fly West to Ulaangom, the capital of Uvs Province, from where you head South towards the Kharkhira Mountains to start your trek. You will load up pack-horses and camels with all the equipment for the next 10 days, and then the expedition will stride out into the wilds. You will walk for 6-7 hours per day, covering between 20-25km, over varying terrain - gentle rolling hills, valleys, beside rivers and lakes, up over high rocky passes on rugged paths, and over the frozen ice of the Turgen glacier. Altitude will vary between 2,200m and 3,400m. Days on the move, evenings around the camp fire enjoying rustic food, and nights under canvas. At the end of your adventure, return to UB where a hot bath awaits and a dinner in one of our favourite restaurants.

  • Max. 8 People
  • Suitable for people of competent fitness & of a hardy nature.
  • This journey includes a return domestic flight.

Rural and Rustic
The expeditionary nature of this journey and the remoteness of the areas visited influence accommodation choices.  You will stay in authentic felt gers at rustic camps with modern conveniences and in tents designed to withstand the local conditions.


"The whole trip was incredible, lived up to all our expectations and was probably the best holiday/adventure of our lives. We had a total ballandthe other people in our group were brilliant."
