With its wide open spaces, lack of fences, few cars and friendly people, Mongolia is the best place in the world to explore on horseback. Flying to Olgi from Ulan Bataar and then a truck ride to the Altai Tavan Bogd national park we hired horses (for riding) and camels (for baggage) from Kazakh herders and trekked to the base camp of the Tavan Bogd (five saints mountains). The views of the mountains, the glaciers and lakes were stunning and we had them all to ourselves. We climbed Khuiten mountain from where you can see Russia, China and Mongolia. Returning to our base camp our Kazakh guides returned with our horses to conclude our memorable trek.
