Mongolian nomads, their origins and native land
In the first volume of the History of Mongolian People's Republic, the main historical writing of Mongolia, it is mentioned that in ancient historical writing about existence of a number of tribes of nomadic pastoralist in central Asia dates back to 3000 BC or Neolithic age. In fact, Central Mongolia is the native land of Mongolian Nomadism as the heart of origin of ancient human beings and animals. 
Mongolians chose nomadic pastoralism and developed pastoral animal husbandry in associotion with specific natural and geographical features of the vast rangelands of Mongolia. Forebears of current herder people were breeding livestock of five types adapting to the natural and climatic condition of Central Mongolia. In othes words native livestock population of five types, including horses, cattle, camels sheep, and goats were being raised and bred in harmony one another and nomadic animal husbandry relied only on natural rangelands. Our herders have created specific skills and knowledge for raising livestock on pasture only for all year around in certain regions of our country.
The true founders of Mongolian srcipt, books, writings, histories, religion, folk literature, musical instrument and three games of man are Mongolian herders.
As compared to other nation worldwide, Mongolian nomads and herder greatly differ in their physical caracteristics, biology, physiological energy, and physiological equilibirium as they have unique senses that enable them to be more connected to the enivronment, specific factors of virgin nature and severe continental climate of Central Mongolia. 
They can distinguish signs expressed by animals, rangelands and vegetations and it is said that they have a special physical connections with blue sky and motrher earth.
The most important quality of foodstuffs consumed by Mongolian nomads is nutritional food with higher fat content and caloric values. They have their own specific traditional methods for slaughtering animals, cutting their carcass, making jerky, and many other meals from viscera and others. Meals from dairy products are a kind of the traditional food and they used to comsume almost all year around. 

Day-4: This day is trainee day for 5 day treck and personal preparation. Everything should be ready for tomorrow. Horse herder should provide you with proper trainee and instruction about proper riding. Circulation of treck will be chosen in steppe region along the bank of the amazing river and mountain pass too. We will discuss the direction and distance while we are there. Wherever we go, nature and landscape is stunning. 

Day-5,6,7,8,9:  After packing everything on horse, we will start our fun horse treck following the valley flanked by spectacular cliffs and rock painting. Through this trip, we'll explore specifics of local area, nature, climate, local tradition, and experience.
Mongolian horse

Since ancient times, Mongolians have loved horses more than any other kinds of livestock. Originally, wild horses were domisticated in Mongolia and Turkey, nomadic tribes grazed livestock over vast areas. In addition playing a role in the economy of the country in the 13th and 14 century, Mongolian horses were also used for politcal purposes and warfare. During this period horses were bred as speciel herds intented for military purpose. Mongolian horses are one of the oldest breeds of horses in the world.
Mongolian child grow up riding horse, starting in very young age. Today Mongolians continue to have true relationship with their horses and consider them as true friends.
At present Mongolia is one of the ten countries with more than one million horses. 
The Mongolian horse is traditionally used for riding, herding, livestock, carting, hunting, and draught.  They can travel great distance for long period of time while carrying loads equil to one third of their body weight. Mongolian horses are hardy animals with good endurance.
One of the main products of Mongolian horses is milk. Majority of the milk is used for making fermented mare's milk and less amount of fresh or dried milk is used for dietic purposes, because horse milk is seen to effective for curing some disorders such as liver and lung diseases in human. The milk can be also used as a main ingredient for manufacturing human skincare cosmetic.

 

Day-10: After breakfast, we'll say good bye to a lovely family and drive to Ogii lake.
Ogii Lake.

Ogii lake, located in the centre of Mongolia, is one the prettiest lake of Mongolia and has 27km squire area. Average depth is 6.64m, in some parts 15.3m, coastal length is 24m. The lake makes a nice overnight stop with plenty of camping spots.  This is a wonderful place for the birdlife and also popular for fishing. It is also perfect place for horse treck and to have boat adventure. 

Day-11: After having breakfast, we carry on our trip to the Else-tasarhai visiting through Kharhorin.Kharkhorin

(Karakorum)

In the mid-13th century, Karakorum was a happening place. ChinggisKhaan established a supply base here and his son Ögedei ordered the construction of a proper capital, a decree that attracted traders, dignitaries and skilled workers from across Asia and even Europe.
The good times lasted around 40 years until Kublai moved the capital to Khanbalik
(later called Bĕijīng), a decision that still incites resentment among some Mongolians. Following the move to Bĕijīng and the subsequent collapse of the Mongol empire, Karakorum was abandoned and then destroyed by vengeful Manchurian soldiers in 1388.
Whatever was left of Karakorum was used to help build, in the 16th century,  ErdeneZuu monastery, which itself was badly damaged during the Stalinist purges.
The rather nondescript Soviet-built town of  Kharkhorin was built a couple of kilometres away from ErdeneZuuKhiid, and there is little of interest in the town itself.
 

Elsen Tasarhai.
Elsen Tasarhai is something of an oasis. It is located in Erdenetsogt soum in Province of Overhangai and Bulgan. It happens being crossed by the main Ulaanbaator-Kharhorin highway neighbouring with the Khogno Khan /Nature Reserve/.  These large dunes strech for some 80km and are worth stopping off at for those who are not planning to visit the much more spectacular Khongoryn Els in the Gobi Desert. This is perfect place for camel riding. 

Overnight in a traditional ger

Day-13: Having stayed overnight at theElsen-tasarhai, we will drive back to UB. Driving time from Lake to UB will be majority of the day. All you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your journee. Lunch will be served during the driving in the afternoon.
