Ride and hike with us in 2019

Zavkhan Trekking will be returning to our favourite Mongolian trekking regions - Zavkhan and the Altai Mountains, departing Ulaanbaatar from June to September. We will also be riding deeper in to the mountains of our latest favourite destination, Kazakhstan.

Special discounts for early bookings and repeat riders

Book before the end of January 2019, for our 2019 season, and receive a 5% early booking discount (only your deposit is required). Our friends in Mongolia and Kazakhstan are not full-time tourism industry professionals, they are local herders, rangers, and countryside folk - giving them plenty of time to plan around their seasonal activities is helpful.

If you’ve been on a trek with us before, and would like to come back and ride with us again, we now have a 10% Mates Rate discount. One of the major reasons our trips work so well is that they attract interesting, adventurous people like you. We know that if you are keen to come and ride with us again (another country, another part of Mongolia), you are definitely the sort of person we like to have on our trips!

We love exploring!

Our trips do not follow a set itinerary, we try out new routes and explore new country much of the time. Zavkhan Trekking specialises in this 'non-itinerised' style of trip that aims to avoid losing the spirit of adventure, which can happen when treks become over-planned and just follow the same old well-worn trail. Find out more about what 'non-itinerised' really means here.

Other trips

If you have a different trip in mind, we can also arrange tailor-made trips, just let us know where you'd like to go and what you'd like to do. If you would like to see Naadam, the country's biggest festival, held in Ulaanbaatar July 11th-12th, our June Zavkhan Classic is scheduled to end with the festival. We may also have the chance to see one of the smaller local Naadam festivals in Zavkhan (the dates vary around mid-July from year to year).
