Khan Khentii: the Mongolian trails 2021
A journey that will give you the opportunity to know the exquisite culture of the Mongolian horses. The Mongolian “horsemans” are nomads, they live very far from any form of modernity, and none more than them depend on horses, which they allow to live in a semi-wild state in total autonomy. During this trip we will discover two different territories: the vast and barren steppe and the forested zone of the Khan Khentii area. A “nomadic” journey through several kilometers accompanied only by your horse. this si a once in a lifetime experience….
