The challenge

  • Explore one of the world’s highest capitals on horseback
  • Cover over 150km of spectacular views and unspoiled landscape
  • Explore ancient Mongolian monuments and temples
  • Visit nomadic communities along the way
  • Uncover Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia's capital of contrasts

At a whopping 1,580m above sea level, Mongolia is one of the highest countries in the world and is a beautiful contrast of vast mountain ranges and open grasslands. Home to the Gobi desert which dominates the south, this vast open land is best explored on four legs. The challenge offers you the chance to create your own nomadic adventure, riding over 160kms across open steppes, through lazy rivers and up gentle mountain slopes as you traverse the Mongolian countryside. There are six days on horseback through landscapes largely unvisited by other tourists. You will live with the locals and experience Mongolian hospitality, as you travel on this timeless mode of transport, stay in traditional ger houses and sleep under the stars.
