Horse Riding with Reindeer Herders in the Hovsgol National Park 2019

The ‘Blue Pearl’ of Mongolia - Hovsgol Lake and Hovsgol National Park - is located in Northern Mongolia on the border with Russia. The park was established in 1992 in order to preserve the crystal clear lake and its surrounding meadows, pasture, and mountain forests with their unique flora and fauna. Here, live the Tsaatan people, reindeer herders who live in tepees, with their shamanic traditions which have existed for thousands of years.
Explore Mongolia on horseback and by four-wheel drive vehicle as you travel from the vast grassland of the steppe to the green, forested hills of north-central Mongolia.  This tour will be a fantastic holiday.

Hi Ganaa and Buyant
I can confirm that Hovd Tour organised a fantastic
Mongolian adventure for me. From the greeting at the airport I was filled with confidence that I was in capable hands and my feelings were proved correct.
At no time did I ever feel uneasy whilst such a long way from home, my guides were always on hand and their English is excellent, there was never a dull moment from start to finish.
I would not hesitate to recommend Hovd Tour too you, they are a very capable and reputable organisation who can tailor any kind of holiday you desire. I will most certainly be using their services again....

Thanks Ganaa,
It was a great trip and your camp really made us feel at home after a long day on the road.

Steve (UK)

Ganaa my friend for life
I would like to thank you for organising our tour of UB and the
neighboring countryside last year. Thanks to you we saw some great sights
in the city - some of historical interest and others of great beauty! I
particularly enjoyed our trip to the market, where your local knowledge and
humor proved invaluable. Without your help, I would never have had the
opportunity to experience a night out in the 'Countryside' with a
traditional Mongolian family.
The horse riding will forever
remain in my memory......
Chris and Ramsay

Hi Hovd Tour
We had amazing time in Mongolia. We enjoyed the horse trek very much in the nice countryside around Valley of Orkhon River.
