Overland Winter Journey across Western Mongolia

Imagine a world that is wild, untouched and so remote that it is one of the least inhabited regions on earth. A world where the shadows of clouds dance with shards of light from the sun, across endless and treeless expanses. This is Western Mongolia, surrounded by the vast desolate landscape of the Altai Mountains! From the snow-covered valleys where horses graze along the frozen river, the rocky, gold-tinted terrain that stretches towards the jagged ridges in the distance that gets constant dusting of snow. This is also the world of the Kazakh Eagle Hunters, who not only survive out in this amazing landscape, but who have also developed a relationship with eagles to hunt with them for prey. You will experience all this up-close with our exclusive motoring expedition that will take you into this uncharted territory.
