Tours Classic Tours Khentii Tour

Price: ( 8 Days )

Khentii (Хэнтий) is one of the 21 aimags (provinces) of Mongolia. Named after the Khentii mountain ranges, this province and its capital, Undurkhaan, are located in Eastern Mongolia. It is best known as the birthplace and likely final resting place of Genghis Khan.

Day 1. Chinggis Khaan Equestrian Statue and Khukh Lake

We will meet at your hotel and then drive east to Khukh Lake. This lake is rumored to be the place where Temujin received the title of Chinggis Khan. On the way, we will visit the Chinggis Khaan Equestrian Statue. That night, we will pitch our tents on the banks of Khukh Lake.

Stay overnight in tents. Lunch and Dinner

Approximately 200 kilometers (70 percent on an asphalt road)

 

Day 2. Mountain-Protected Monastery

From Khukh Lake, we will drive to the Baldanereeven Monastery. This monastery was built in 1777 and is surrounded by four mountains, each said to resemble an animal: a lion on the east; a dragon on the south; a tiger on the west; and a garuda on the north. Baldanereeven was one of the three largest monasteries in Mongolia and home to 1500 lamas. It was destroyed once by thugs in the 1930s and again by fire in the 1970s.

Stay overnight in tents. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Approximately 70 kilometers

 

Day 3. Rashaan Khad and Uglugch Wall

We will depart towards Rashaan Khad, a rock with numerous ancient inscriptions and drawings. The inscriptions depict animals, people, and Mongolian tribal seals and are written in 20 different scripts such as Orkhon, Kidan, Arabic, Persian, Mongolian, and Tibetan. An ancient tomb, dating back to 2000 BC, and monuments attributed to the Huns are also found here. We will continue our trip by stopping by the Uglugch Wall. This ancient wall is over a kilometer long and made of red granite. Originally, the wall stretched much higher, but time has taken its toll. This area also used to be a burial ground for Mongolian royalty.

Stay overnight in tents. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Approximately 90 kilometers

 

Days 4 & 5. Dadal Sum

From the Uglugch Wall we will travel north across Onon River and towards Dadal Sum where we will spend two days. Dadal is a gorgeous area full of lakes, rivers, and forests. Unlike the rest of Mongolia, the locals here live in log huts instead of gers. Near the Onon-Balj National Park and extending north towards Russia, Dadal is just 25 kilometers from Siberia. Here, we will explore the area and go horseback riding.

Stay overnight in tents. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Approximately 200 kilometers
