What you'll do
Either you are a first time visiting traveller or working in Mongolia for a while, you want to escape the concrete jungle for one day and forest hike into the place where we can experience the freshest air of Ulaanbaatar. It is right in the heart of Bogd Khan Mountain range, a National Reservation area. It is perhaps one of the few great places you can explore while you are in UB with the help of your local expert’s guide, experiencing some nature without going really far from UB. Our experience will take 3-4 hours depending on our walking pace. 8:00-8:15 Drive, introduce each other. At 8 am, we will meet at Sukhbaatar square or I can pick you up from your staying hotel. We will begin our hiking after a 15-minute drive to the Bogd Khan Mountain. 8:15-9:30 Forest hike up to the mountain. It takes 1-1.5 hours hike to reach the top of the mountain. We will have a warm fellowship, take photos, and talk about interesting topics and insight about the city. 9:30-10:30 We usually spend 30-60 minutes on top to explore, take photos, and have a light breakfast before getting back. 10:30 - 11:30 An hour hike back down to the camp. We'll arrive back in the city centre before around 12pm. You’ll definitely appreciate yourself for having such an experience.
Your friendly host Orgil, which is me :), has been hiking for 7 years since 2012. It has been always so fascinating to me to hike in the beautiful nature of Bogd Khan Mountain range. I was born and grow up in Ulaanbaatar(UB) city. As a citizen of a metropolitan city, it was quite difficult to find nature around us even though Mongolia is a land of beauty. In 2012, while I was studying IT in my senior year in college, I had a chance to follow my dean of the department to hike to the Bogd Khan Mountain for the first time in my life. Ever since that time, I encouraged all of my family members, relatives and friends to hike to this destination. It is the most beautiful and fresh-air nature you can ever find near to the city of Ulaanbaatar.
