Research At The Foot Of The Altai

Being the owner of Eternal Landscapes, I believe it is important that we remain in touch the ‘real’ Mongolia. We do this through our ongoing research trips. It’s our way of getting to explore and discover parts of the country that we know and want to get to know better with the possibility of putting this knowledge into our Mongolia small group holidays  and Mongolia tailor made tours in the future. It’s also a chance for the local people we work with to show us the hidden side to their home.

This great image is of one of our driver and trip assistant teams out on a reconnaissance horse trek during one of our 2015 Mongolia research trips. The stunning Tsambagarav Mountain forms their backdrop.

Tsambagarav Uul National Park stands high above the provincial borders of Khovd and Bayan-Ulgii aimag and forms part of the Mongol Altai Mountain Range. The 4208m peak that the national park is named after is one of Mongolia’s most beautiful snow-capped mountains and surrounded by wild open valleys – it is a stunning setting to get a little more off the beaten track.
