Overview

Book
At the heart of Mongolia's Altai Tavan Bogd (Five Holy Peaks), Mount Khuiten is one of the least accessible mountains on earth. This massif lies on the border with both Russia and China, some 2000 kilometres west of the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar. After sightseeing in Ulaanbaatar and enjoying a day's preparatory trekking in the nearby Bogdkhan National Park, we continue our journey to the remote Kazakh province of Bayan Olgii where we will start our trek.

On our 1-day trek to basecamp we are assisted by camels and their drivers and there should be the opportunity to meet and take tea with nomadic herders at their traditional ger encampments. Starting out with the straightforward trek to the summit of Malchin (4037m), we gain dramatic views of the Potaniin Glacier and of our subsequent climbing objectives; the relatively steep and challenging Mount Khuiten (4374m) and the easier, non-technical snow dome of Nairandal (4082m). More than just a superb climbing expedition, this is also a fascinating travel experience in a rarely-visited corner of the world.

    • Camel-supported trek to Base Camp

Excellent support for planning the trip. I went on 2 treks, this one and the Russian Tcherskiy Mountain trek, so I needed extra support and it was there. The guide was simply the best (tell him I said so). First rate in every way. He is the reason the trip went so well! His personality simply fits perfectly with the requirements of a guide - everyone's friend and mentor. My satisfaction cannot be overstated. Not that the experience wasn't challenging - it was - but it was just as I expected; a well supported, no frills adventure with exceptional guides. I will definitely book again.

All of the pre- trip information from the office was all thoroughly good (as usual). Superb! - best trip I have been on (out of my 6 previous trips - which were all very good too). Thanks! Adrian was a really good leader, very knowledgeable, and also particularly very good and enjoyable company in the mountains. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip - from start to finish - all superb. Thought the free entrance to the culture show and museums and also good restaurants was a really nice touch. And the mountain experience was SUPERB!

Our trek leader was a central figure to the success of the trip. He obviously knows the area and local staff very well and this was essential to the success of the trip. He moulded the group together exceptionally well and made the climbing very enjoyable and utterly safe for all. An excellent leader. We have done over ten trips between us and this was one of our best.
