Mongolia's Altai Mountains Trek

Mongolia's Altai Mountains Trek


From £3,395
Altitude 4,037m Grade: T4

Join our camel supported trekking into Mongolia's "Wild West". Ascend Mount Malchin and look down into Russia.

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.

  • Repatriation
  • The altitude that you are expected to attain
  • The location especially when travelling to Antarctica

When they do, we rely on Global Rescue to provide our clients with medical, security, travel risk and crisis response services. Without a membership, an emergency evacuation could cost over $100,000.
