Exploring Mongolia’s Wild Frontier

This August, explore the untamed wilds of western Mongolia with Whistling Arrow. The Hong Kong-based adventure specialists will lead a small group trekking expedition into the last frontier borderlands of Mongolia and China, where they can explore the area’s snowy peaks and glacial valleys.

Armed with special permits, intrepid travellers will trek through two ‘hidden valleys,’ traverse the Altai mountains, hike over the largest glacier in the area, and climb the 4000-metre Malchin Peak to find stunning panoramas over China, Russia, and Kazakhstan. The highlight of the trip is an overnight stay with a renowned Kazakh eagle hunter and his family, who set up their summer gers next to a picturesque lake each year.

The Altai Adventure Trek begins and ends in Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar, and will cater to only eight guests. The 14-day trip (August 17 – 30) is priced at US$3,900 per person, including domestic flights, transfers, guides, accommodation, food, and equipment. www.whistlingarrow.com
