DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Uncover the scenic treasures of Mongolia with this exquisite seven-day tour. You will begin your adventure in the capital of Ulaanbaatar and travel by private charter flight to remote areas of the country. Head to the East Gobi Desert and spend a few days in Ikh Nart, a nature reserve bursting with exotic wildlife and pristine landscapes. Here, you will have the chance to see the famous Argali sheep and the long-horned Siberian ibex. You will also meet friendly local herders and experience traditional Mongolian life by staying in comfortable ger camps, accommodation still used to this day by nomadic people. After, you’ll fly to the gorgeous Khan Khentii wildlife preserve, a UNESCO-designated region bursting with lush pastureland, beautiful flowers and wildlife. Here, you’ll venture into untouched wilderness and set your own journey pace by choosing to explore by foot, raft or on horseback.

Why travel by private aircraft?

Traveling via private aircraft is the ultimate way to experience Mongolia. The biggest advantage is the savings of valuable time. By flying on your own personal plane, you’ll never have to deal with transfers, flight delays or cancellations. Furthermore, you’ll have the opportunity to discover exclusive and distant destinations, usually inaccessible to travelers. Mongolia is yours to discover with your own Cessna Caravan – a luxurious and comfortable choice for your Mongolian getaway.

Day-to-Day

DAY 1 Ikh Nart

Start your amazing journey in the capital of Ulaanbaatar, and meet your welcoming Mongolian guide in the morning. Board your personal plane and take a scenic flight over the stunning grassland steppe. In the afternoon, you’ll arrive in Ikh Nart and spend the night at a traditional ger camp. Here, you’ll enjoy a night of comfort in fully-collapsible lodges built in the nomadic style.

DAY 2 Ikh Nart

You’ll spend today uncovering Ikh Nartiin Chuluu Nature Reserve, a breathtaking region home to a plethora of unique nature and wildlife. After breakfast, hop in a vehicle and drive to remote rocky areas to discover the fascinating Argali sheep and long-horned Siberian ibex. Then enjoy an afternoon of birdwatching and spot exotic species flying high in the sky.

DAY 3 Ikh Nart

Enjoy a second day of exploration in Ikh Nart and interact with hospitable herders who migrate in and out of the nature reserve on a daily basis. Learn about traditional Mongolian life and culture as you witness locals hard at work while tending to animals. You’ll also learn about research efforts in the area, which focus on many species of mammals, including the Corsac fox, red fox, the mysterious lynx and wolf species.

DAY 4 Khan Khentii

After breakfast, step into your private plane and fly to the serene Khan Khentii nature preserve. The Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area is located in the Khentii Mountains, and includes the sacred UNESCO-designated Burkhan Khaldun mountain. This is considered to be the birthplace of Genghis Khan, as well as one of the rumored locations of his tomb.  In the afternoon, take a scenic hike or ride to the local ger camp and finish the day with a delicious dinner prepared by skilled chefs.
