This Altai Mountains trek takes you deep into the “Wild West” of Mongolia, where rolling steppe grasslands ease their way upwards to glaciers and snow covered peaks along the international borders with Russia and China. On your journey to this remote region you will get to appreciate the sheer vastness of Mongolia. After a short time in the capitol Ulanbator, a three hour flight to the west takes you over endless, sparsely inhabited, steppe to the Kazakh city of Ulgii from where the real adventure begins.
We trek for six days, with camels carrying our bags and equipment, to reach a “base camp” in the Tavan Bogd Mountains. From here we explore the glaciers and trek to the top of Malchin Peak (4050m) before returning to Ulgii to start the journey home. During the trek we will encounter Kazakh and Turvan nomads living in their gers (yurts) and tending their herds in these high rolling pastures.

It is vitally important that you have adequate travel insurance for your trip with Adventure Peaks. We recognise the complexity and variety of choice in the insurance market and know that many of you either have your own preferred insurer or have annual multi trip cover in place already. If this is the case, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your Adventure Peaks itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken.
Adventure Peaks do not provide any advice on travel insurance, although it is a requirement of our booking conditions that you have travel insurance which covers the activities which you are likely to be undertaking on your holiday. Cover must include emergency medical, helicopter evacuation, repatriation and rescue expenses.
It is strongly recommended that suitable cancellation insurance is purchased at the time of booking as all deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
