Best of Central Mongolia

Mongolia without day long drive and dusty road, but fully packed active trip of 8 days holiday in Central Mongolia offers a good balance of rest and adventure. Starting with Hustai National Park, a home to wild horses, drive further to Karakorum to learn more of the history and arrive in Horgo Volcano for the lake areas and dormant volcano crater. Tsenkher hot spring for the next day is to relax and swim in the Jacuzzi pool, then proceed towards Tuvkhun Mountain for forest hiking. Then enjoy the countryside where sand dunes line with the rocky mountains, camels, horses and cattle graze in the river valley, all together reflected in the small pond.
