There are three major mountain chains in Mongolia: the Mongolian Altai Mountains the Khangai(Khangain Nuruu), and the Khentii Mountains(Khentiin Nuruu). The Mongolian Altai in the west and southwest constitute the highest and the longest of these chains.
Altai Mountains—located at the borders of Russia, China, and Mongolia. One of the last untouched wilderness areas of Asia, and it the highest mountain in Mongolia, including holy peaks, Khuiten, Malchin, Burged, Olgey and Nairamdal.
Western Mongolia is still relatively unexplored, and this expedition offers active travelers a unique opportunity to trek among the region’s snow-capped mountains and camp beside pristine rivers and lakes.
Traveling through this spectacular landscape affords travelers the opportunity to interact with local nomadic Kazakh families and experience the unique culture that has been preserved in this remarkable and isolated part of the world.
