DISCOVER MONGOLIA FROM DESERT TO CRYSTAL LAKE






DISCOVER MONGOLIA FROM DESERT TO CRYSTAL LAKE
Heartwarming encounters with nomadic families and an appreciation for the vast and ever-changing landscape make traveling overland through Mongolia as enjoyable as reaching the destination. This epic off-road adventure will traverse the entire country from south to north using 4-wheel-drive vehicles. Our extensive route is one of the most ambitious off-road expeditions ever undertaken in Mongolia and we will encounter undiscovered regions where the rest of the world seems a million miles and a few hundred years away.
To the north we will explore ancient Lake Khuvsgul by kayak, considered the cleanest freshwater lake left on the planet. To the south we'll short camel trek through the mysterious desert the Gobi, wild and untamed. And in between we'll be embraced by the endless steppe as we travel with horseback, blanketed by the endless blue sky. From Yak to Kayak is one of our most unique adventures, allowing you to explore an ancient land with traditional modes of transportation.
