I had a very enjoyable trip to the spectacular wilderness of the Khan Khentii with Manda, my guide Dodi, the cook and Mantuck the horseman. The horses were excellent and we traveled trough some very difficult terrain – high mountain climbs / deserts and very wet mud. Dodi was an excellent cook and prepared fast tasty meals for breakfast and dinner using limited resources. Manda spoke excellent English and told many stories and histories of Mongolia. All three were fun to spend five days with talking around the campfire, some drinks and even doing some Mongolia wrestling.
There was some terrible weather and some very difficult riding but the highlights of the trip riding in the spectacular scenery of the Khan Khentii and spending time in the wilderness with real Mongolians – made it all wonderful. Thank you for looking after me and giving me an amazing experience and unforgettable memories.
