Travel Indochina’s ‘Trans Mongolian Adventure’ small group journey still has limited availability for the opportunity to see the nation’s most important and one of Asia’s most spectacular festivals, Naadam.
With a guaranteed departure from Beijing 2 July 2012, and led by an experienced Western tour leader, the journey provides an intimate experience joining in the excitement of the incredible Naadam Festival, in a beautiful rural setting far from the crowds of Ulaan Baatar.
According to Travel Indochina Managing Director Paul Hole, few tourists get to visit Mongolia, and the number is likely to decline as mining interests snare limited accommodation and transport availability.
“Currently, it is estimated there are only 90,000 leisure tourists who visit Mongolia annually*,” according to Paul, “so as a destination this really does deliver on its reputation as Asia’s wild frontier.
“Change is in the wind as investors, like the mining companies, start to move in. We truly believe the time to visit this spectacularly wild and rugged land is now, and we know passengers won’t be disappointed by the unique experiences they’ll share on our Trans Mongolian adventure.”
The 15 day adventure includes nine nights in traditional Mongolian ‘ger’ accommodation (overnight tents).
Passengers are transported into a fabled land on a two-day trip on the legendary Trans-Mongolian Railway. They also have the opportunity to meet reindeer herders, swim in alpine lakes, and ride rare camels through endless dunes, for a truly unique adventure.
The journey also features a visit to Gandan Monastery, considered the centre of Buddhism in Mongolia, a drive to Khustai National Park – home to Mongolia’s Takhi (wild horses), a stop in Karakorum, the ancient capital of the great Genghis Khan, where Erdene Zuu Monastery, Mongolia’s first Buddhist monastery is located, and many other highlights.
Priced from $4130 per person twin share, limited availability remains.
