Horses around Khuvsgul Lake


Day 1: Murun, Drive to Starting Point

By plane from Ulaanbaatar we will reach Murun, capital city of Khuvsgul province. We will go on driving eastwards to our host family. Immerse yourself within locals. Discover in depth their way of life gets involved in their daily activities such as milking, process milk into butter, cream, cheese etc... Bring animals to the family camp for evening. Goats and sheep must be brought next to the Ger for every night to be in protection from wolves. Evening, barbeque cooked over hot stones is on the menu. Engage a friendly chat & stories of their life over one or two shots of vodka. Herders make local vodka from fermented milk. Tastes little bit similar to rice vodka.
