- Off the beaten track
This mountain range boasts the highest peaks that you'll find during your trip to Mongolia. The amazing Altai Tavan Bogd National Park is home to no less that five summits of more than 4,000m.
The setting is spectacular. Sheer rock faces, glaciers, mounds of snow - a vast, pure mass that made this one of my favourite destinations in the country. I also loved the cultural diversity in this region, home to a multi-ethnic population. You can learn so much about the Mongolian people, who, no matter what the circumstances, are the most welcoming of hosts.
I also had the chance to see the stunning lakes that line the route, notable Lakes Khoton, Khurgan and Dayan. Bear in mind that you'll be in the heart of Mongolia's wilderness, so plan ahead and make sure you've stocked up on provisions.
