Key information: Altai Mountains

  • Magnificent mountains in remote western Mongolia.
  • Peaks of snow and rock rise above rough ridges, some nestling glaciers, and grand valleys dotted with gers (yurts) and herds on the sparse grazing.
  • Enjoy wonderful campsites and join genuinely welcoming locals for a cup of savoury yak butter tea in their gers.
  • An excellent alternative is to ride these routes in this big country, you cover more ground and experience even more in the time available.
