Western Mongolia is the most isolated region of Mongolia– both geographically and culturally – from the Mongol heartland. With its glacier-wrapped mountains, shimmering salt lakes and the hardy culture of nomads, falconry and cattle rustling, western Mongolia is, in many ways, a timeless slice of Central Asia.
Bordering with Russia, Kazakhstan, China and the rest of Mongolia, this region has long been a patchwork of peoples including ethnic Kazakhs, Durvuds, Khotons, Myangads and Khalkh Mongols. Traditional arts such as khöömii throat singing and eagle hunting are still practised here, as they have been for thousands of years.
The wild landscape with its abundant wildlife creates fabulous opportunities for photographers, trekkers and climbers on peaks that rise to over 4000m. But there is a tour with less difficulty and with more comforts.
BT & TC travel company offers adventure tours such as photosafari, jeep, horseback riding tours.
