My friend and I started planning our trip to Mongolia last year and right from the first email enquiry Boggie was prompt with her replies. Boggie was able to work with us to plan a trip to suit our time frame, flights and activities that we wanted to do. We couldn't have been happier with the outcome.
We combined two tours - 'Explore Mongolia Private Tour extended with Yak Cart Supported Trekking' - 21 days.
By including two domestic flights we were able to cover a lot of the country. Boggie organised sightseeing tours in Ulaanbaatar and a tour to see the wild horses in Hustai National Park.
We flew to the Gobi where we were met by our guide Sony and driver Denzka. We spent two weeks with Sony and Denzka and they were fantastic. Most of the roads were 4 wheel drive tracks so it was important to have a confident and capable driver. Sony's English was excellent and we felt well supported at all times throughout the tour.
The Gobi was an amazing experience due to the landscape and isolation. From there we travelled to Central Mongolia where we were blown away by the beauty of the grassy steppes covered in wildflowers and literally thousands of the most beautiful, healthy, farm animals. The Nomad families we visited were always most hospitable and it was great to see how they live, totally in tune with their environment.
We then travelled to the picturesque Lake Khuvsgul before flying back to the city.
From there we headed to the Khan Khentil National Park and Gorkhi Terelj National Park for a short trek with our lovely new guide Bulgamaa.
The accommodation throughout was mostly in Ger camps which varied greatly in standard. On the whole they were a lot more comfortable than we expected. All had toilet/shower blocks with western toilets. The food throughout the tour was pre ordered by Boggie and it was fantastic. Many of the meals at the camps were equal in quality to good restaurants in Australia.
We were so happy that we booked our holiday with View Mongolia as it all went smoothly and was so well organised. June was a great time to travel as we were just before the peak tourist season, but the weather was mild and the wild flowers were beautiful. I highly recommend this company if you are planning on visiting Mongolia.
