6 thoughts on “Our Epic 8 Day Mongolian Trek (Video)

  1. HI, perfect trip. Could you send me your road trip ? I leave to Mongolia in June. Thank u. Ben

  2. Dear Goats On The Road,

    We’re three girls from Belgium (21-22 years old) and are just back from a 12-day-trip to Mongolia. It was a fantastic experience and one we’ll never forget! We also included your trek following the Chuluut river to Tariat and really want to thank you for the great idea and tips we got from your blog. We did hike on the other side of the river, though, and had some problems with the rain which created hundreds of small rivers in the steppe that we had to cross – because of that, three friendly Mongolian fisherman offered us a lift for about 40 kilometers, which is why we managed to finish our trek in only 4-5 days. Before leaving for the hike, most Mongolian people that were told about our plan did warn us however for wild wolves in the steppe. They are most active in wintertime but are something to keep in mind for people also considering this trek. Also, we didn’t do any fishing so our food supplies were a little bit larger than yours – however, a lot of locals offered us food. It is not something you can count on, but it is very comforting to know there’s always someone you can turn to (there were a lot of gers along our itinerary) in case of food-shortage. Another thing we struggled with, is the fact that the Suman turned out to lie in a canyon as well, which made it impossible to get any drinking water from the river – that is why we hiked the last part along the main road. This also might be important to know when planning to hike there.

    All in all, it was a very great trip! We really feel like we got the real Mongolian experience without any tours. We met a lot of nice people and really recommend this hike to anyone up to adventurous travels!

  3. Hi ladies!

    Thanks for the comment about your trek 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed it, such a great adventrue. We too had to cross the little rivers due to rains! So annoying 😉 And yes, the water is an issue at that one area you talked about. We stocked up on water and iced tea drinks at the one little random shop that is there right near the canyon.

    I’m glad you were able to get a ride as well. Sounds like you 3 had a good time.

    Cheers!

  4. Amazing! Thanks for the inspiration.
    Very keen on this trekk, or one like it. What was the name of the town you started your journey from before hitching into Chuluut?
    Merci!
