Catherine designed her own trip to explore Mongolia in March, 2007.

Thank you for suggesting such a great itinerary for my few days in Mongolia. It was a brilliant (and probably once in a lifetime) experience to be able to go and stay with Aya and his family. Really eye opening ... I'll definitely take back some sheep herding tips to my Dad! We were very lucky in the numbers of animals we saw in Hustai and at really close range too: 3 groups of Przewlaski horses, enormous herds of deer (which ran right across our path), lots of marmots. There is so much more to see and do here I look forward to coming back.

Culture Up Close - Home/Monastery Stay

A very special way to discover the lifestyle and traditions of the Mongols is to stay a few days with nomadic families. Accompanied by a translator, for a short while you will become a nomadic family member. Grazing the herds, riding horses and eating the local cuisine are just a small part of the whole experience. We can also make special arrangements for you to stay in a Buddhist monastery; learn more about Buddhism, understand how the lams of this Tibetan philosophy dedicate themselves to spiritual awareness, and take time to relax. Home and monastery stays can be arranged for you as stand alone trips or added to another trip of your choice.
