Be realistic and do not anticipate a very intensive route that will challenge your stamina on the bumps of dirt roads and test your back and stomach unless you plan an absolutely sporting raid. Count on the following optimum: average car speed of 30 km/hour and 5–6 hours in car per day.

 

Do not exclude that you may have to shorten your route due to unforeseeable circumstances such as local weather conditions, medical quarantines, etc. or to modify it spontaneously in order to experience an exciting event on the road (a local naadam, traditional ceremony, wedding, etc). It is important to let your emotions thrill. 

 

No need to "make" all "tourist attractions" of the country to be enchanted by the scenery and the spirit of the nomadic people. 

The landscapes and skies are sumptuous everywhere and there is no need to move far away from the capital city to be in the middle of nowhere in the infinity of steppes and encounter magic meetings out of time. 

 

Note that the large strokes indicating the principal axes, when you look at the map, are only dirt roads that are practically everywhere in Mongolia. The few asphalt roads are often worse than the dirt trails. 

 

We advise to spend some time by a lake or a river and relax (hiking, horse riding , fishing, and swimming)

 

You will have to cross small towns in countryside on the road for food / drinfs and fuel supply

 

We will advise you, based on our huge experience in the countryside, to define the best suitable route according to your wishes and possibilities.  

 

  Some suggestions of routes and service examples

Eagle festival

Mongolia’s extreme far West is home to many ethnic groups as Kazakhs, Tuvinians, Durvuds and Urianhais, most of whom live in Bayan-Ulgii aimag nestled in the picturesque Altai Mountain range. 
Kazakhs have a long-lived tradition of hunting small animals with specially trained eagles that dates back to old times when hunting was an important additional source of living to nomads who relied on livestock and wildlife hunting. In the rigorous climate of Altai Mountains, hunting was also a source of fur and hair used in clothing. While Kazakh men hunted foxes and rabbits with eagles, women made nicely decorated fur hats and coats to be worn during extremely cold winters. 
Eagle training requires special skills and is done by trainers who carefully combine feeding and training to make this magnificent free-spirited bird hunt for the need of man. Trained eagles stay quite during the year and are fed well by trainers.
Early October is the start of the hunting season. The winter cold comes closer and animals develop thicker and warmer fur getting ready for winter. As the hunting season approaches, Kazakhs prepare their eagles for hunting: less food makes the eagle more aggressive and more fast-flying. 
Nowadays, eagle training is less of a life need and more a tradition and part of culture. The Golden Eagle Festival is held every year and is a two-day venue for people and eagle hunters from around the province to gather together and show off the nicest, fastest and best trained eagles. 
The eagle festival is accompanied by other festivities of local ethnic groups, including traditional music and dance concerts, sports games and shows of best dresses and costumes. The festival participants have an opportunity to take with themselves traditional products of this region, which is famous by its colorful handmade embroideries, especially those made by Kazakh women. 

In brief : 
Local flight: Ulaanbaatar – Khovd - Ulaanbaatar
By car: around 800 km 
Program: 1 day in Ulaanbaatar, 2 days Golden Eagle Festival and 7 days of jeep tour with horse riding, visiting families of nomads and eagle hunters.
