Mongolia on my mind

Oriental lure: Experience the steppes. Ibex

Return to Ulan Bator and then get set for exposure to a completely different part of the country: the green meadows of the upper Tuul river. Trek through Khan Khentii, a wilderness area three times the size of Yellowstone National Park, and the Jalman Meadows. You’ll be escorted by a botanist and a local guide throughout. The trip can be extended/customized through summer (excluding mid-July), but the base price is $2,660 (around Rs1.20 lakh) per person on double occupancy, exclusive of airfares, visa fees and beverages. The adventure starts on 6 June from Ulan Bator. For more on the trip, email ibex@ibexexpeditions.com or call 011-26460244/26460246.
