Mon­go­lia (210km around the Khan Khen­tii range)

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

Start your ad­ven­ture in Khan Khen­tii Na­tional Park and make the Genghis Khan Eques­trian Statue your first stop here. Climb to the horse’s head of this 131-ft steel sculp­ture for a killer view of the vast grass­lands stud­ded with white ger tent camps. Bike along the Tuul River and you’ll come face to face with flocks of do­mes­ti­cated yaks as you con­tinue your off-road jour­ney to Janchivlan Hill. Feast on stone-roast lamb bar­beque un­der the star-dot­ted sky as you pitch a tent next to a no­madic fam­ily in the un­spoilt wilder­ness. End your trip back at Ulaan­baatar, where you’ll re­turn to civ­i­liza­tion and warm wa­ter. Plan your trip be­tween Jun-Sep for the most mod­er­ate tem­per­a­tures.
