About Khan Khentii

Just a few hours’ drive northeast from Mongolia’s capital, the steppe at the foothills of the Khentii mountains extend via an untamed wilderness up to the Russian border and Siberia beyond.

This is the very landscape for which Mongolia is rightly famed; vast rolling grasslands and wildflower meadows, criss-crossed by wild glacial rivers where herds of wild horses roam free. In the hills flanking them, wolves, brown bear, moose and wild boar conceal themselves in the Taiga forests of larch, pine and birch. There are no fences or restrictions and nomads drive their flocks of sheep and cashmere goats between seasonal pastures. 

Our journeys here are a yak cart trek to a private camp in the wilds or a horse ride over hills and steppe. Each night you’ll stay in mobile private ger camps furnished with comfy beds complete with linen and heated by wood stoves. These can be packed up and moved on when conditions demand, springing up like white mushrooms amid the endless green.

Best time to go visit Khan Khentii

Mongolia has an extreme continental climate with short hot summers and long very cold winters. Ulaan Baatar is said to be the coldest capital on earth, and across the country winter temperatures regularly drop to -30C (-22F) and below.

The best time to visit Mongolia is during the summer, from late May to September, when days are generally warm and dry – but experiencing four seasons in one day is a distinct possibility at all times of year.

There are 260 days of sunshine each year giving rise to Mongolia being known as the ‘Land of Blue Skies’ while at night they are impossibly drenched with stars. Temperatures plummet as soon as the sun goes down so be prepared to wrap up warm then, even in summer.
