10 Days / 9 Nights Itinerary (Ulaanbaatar - Jalman Meadows - Hagiin Har Nuur - Hiydiyn Sardag & Hoh Nuur - Jalman Meadows - Ulaanbaatar)

Hagiin Har Nuur (Hagiin Black Lake) is a remote lake located hidden in the interior deep forests of the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area, in the Hentii wilderness northeast from Ulaanbaatar. It is Mongolia's only true wilderness in the sense that it is completely devoid of people and domestic animals. It is the realm of wolfs, moose, red deer, gazelle, wild boar, lynx, brown bear etc and we will not meet any people for most part of the journey. The Tuul River originates close to Hagiin Har Nuur and it eventually finds it course via Ulaanbaatar and drains out to the north to the Selenge River which in turn feeds Lake Baikal with two thirds of its water, which in turn empties in the Arctic Ocean. A couple of kilometers away the Herlen River originates, and it belongs to the Pacific drainage basin. It is located within the taiga lifezone and located near the watershed point of Asian Rivers whereof some drains out north to the Arctic Ocean, others to the east out into the Pacific Ocean.



The support structure for our expedition will local herdsmen with their riding horses and packhorses, that will carry tents, luggage's and equipment. You ride cross-terrain. You will camp in the wild. Our trailfinder is a local herdsman who spends the winters with his herd and family at Jalman Meadows, a 8-hour orseback ride short of Hagiin Har Nuur. Jalman Meadows Ger Camp is also located there, from where our eexpedition will start. It has double occupancy gers. A cook and interpreter will follow.

DAY 2 : To Jalman Meadows
A.m. Depart by vehicle from your hotel in Ulaanbaatar for the 3-3,5 hours ride to (110km) the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area. It is the continuation of Terelj National Park, consisting of the interior parts of the same. For an hour we will drive through a steppe valley that is summer pasture for numerous herdsmen and their cattle. P.m. On arrival meet the trailfinder and horsemen. Trial ride around the area and cross the Tuul river to enjoy the view over Jalman Meadows, rich in wildflowers and berries during the summer season, located just below the Jalman Mountain (2051 meters above sea level).

Day 3-4 : To Hagiin Har Nuur
Our route will be decided according to river levels and climatic conditions of the time. There are three different barely visible trails unknown to others but for the local people, that makes its way towards Hagiin Har Nuur. We will load the packhorses with the equipment, and set on the ride. There is a saddlebag for each rider. We will make our way further up the Tuul River Valley or the Zuunbayan River Valley. We will make our way into this fascinating area of rivers and small lakes via the Hongoriin and Hagiin River and set up a base camp by the lake. We will remain here for two nights. The area is rich in wildlife, although it is difficult to see it. The lake itself and the rivers are rich in fish such as Grayling, Lenok Trout and Taimen, that can grow to sizeable portions here.

DAY 5 : Hiydiyn Sardag & Hoh Nuur
We will make a day ride, first in a northeasterly direction to the small and ruined Sardag Monastery.

Then to the northwest to H?h Nuur (Blue Lake) which is considerably smaller than Hagiin Har Nuur. There are several small lakes connected to it. Return to the same campsite.
