Mongolia & the Altai Mountains - Mongolia *Exploratory
Project Himalaya heads to Mongolia,
a remote region steeped in legend, a fabled land of golden
steppes, the infamous Gengis Khan, nomads on horseback, yurts
and a Tibetan Buddhist tradition. We'll do some trekking and
exploration in the far western Altai Mountains, the world
of the Khazak nomads, as well as the sublime Khovsgol Lake.
A seasoned traveler related that his soul left his body to
enter the rich earth of Mongolia.
