Camel Supported Trek on Tsambagarav Uul
The Altai Mountains, with eternal snow-capped peaks and glaciers, are the highest of the three major mountain ranges in Mongolia. Tsamba- garav Mountain is a stand alone eternally snow capped mountain of the Altais between Hovd and Ölgii with the twin peaks of Tsast and Tsambagarav. The name Altai, in Mongolian Altain Nuruu, translates as "Mountains of Gold" . The Altai Mountains has been classed as a World Heritage Site since 1998, due to the outstanding wildlife habitats here. In this remote region the traditional way of life has remained un- disturbed and there are many nomads of different ethnic minorities residing. For example the Kazakhs who are Muslims and the Tuvans who are Buddhist and shamanistic. This trek will bring us to the Roof of Mongolia, the highest mountain region in the country, where we will trek supported by locals, horses and pack camels.
