Imagine a country so remote you may feel at times like you are the only person on earth in it. Add the stunning scenery of rolling grasslands, snow-capped mountains, ice-blue lakes and giant sand dunes. Now take that feeling of remoteness and amplify it by going into the furthest corners of this remote land. That is what this trip is designed to do. Then there are the nomadic people who have a natural affinity with travelers and who will invite you into their gers for a meal and an overnight. Join Kazakh eagle hunters at their celebrations and uncover the true spirit of Mongolia.
