Hiking trip through Ancient Glaciers and Petroglyphic Complexes of the Mongolian Altai together with Bulgan and Ahamkara

€2950 per person

“Altai Mountains are one of the best walks in Mongolia and even one of the best in the entire world.”

Traveling through this spectacular landscape gives you the opportunity to interact with local nomadic families and experience their unique culture that has been preserved in this remarkable and isolated part of the world.

This trip will bring you to the magnificent Altai Tavan Bogd National Park. This region is home to snow-capped mountains, glacial valleys, forests, rivers, petroglyph sites, and lakes, where they create a majestic setting.

 

Altai Tavan Bogd (Holy Five Peaks)

The name “Altai” means “Golden Mountain’ in Mongolian. It is one of the last untouched wildernesses on Earth. This large mountain system is located in the extreme southwest of Mongolia has borders with China and Russia. Altai Tavan Bogd (Holy Five Peaks) has five high

peaks, the highest peak at 4374 meters, that are connected with each other by three large glaciers. The largest glacier is the Potanin

Glacier, which is 17 km long.

 

The Biluut Petroglyph Complex

Between the high peaks of the Mongolian Altai, you can find the Ancient Glaciers and Petroglyph sites. These unique rock paintings are inscribed on the UNESCO world heritage list. There are three sites, where these ancient rock paintings can be found. One of the sites is Tsagaan Salaa’s rock paintings which are cover 15 square kilometers. We can see about 10000 paintings on the rocks that scatter the southern part of the white river, ”Tsagaan Gol”. This important collection ofpictograms dates back to a large period going from the Paleolithic to Bronze Age.
