Riding high.. . The sky started to look a little dramatic as we rode higher and higher, onto the barren ridges and grass plateaus that are one route to the top of Altan Ulgii - "Golden Cradle", one of the highest mountains of the Khan Khentii. . The day ride was one of the highlights of our recent 8 day trek in Gorkhi Terelj National Park, our first trek of the season. . The horses powered up the steep track to the pass as usual. Nothing special for the strong and surefooted Mongolian horses..On the pass, we left the trail to find a way onto the open tops. Great views from there - to the North deeper into the Khentii mountains and onto the routes we take there on our longer horseback expeditions. . And to the South the view onto the more gentle landscape of Gorkhi Terelj National Park - the wide valley of the Baruun Bayngol, with expanses of grasslands, forest stands on the northern slopes and the hills crowned with rock formations. . It was a good excursion to check out the route over the pass. Much windfall from the winter and spring storms on the track, but already horses had made their way through. . We will be back soon to explore the mountain tops again and for a glimpse into the Khentii wilderness - and later this season to descend beyond the pass and ride into the Khentii wilderness once again. . #horseriding #mountains #wilderness #keepitwild #welivetoexplore #khentii #mongolia #khankhentii #horses #wearetrailriders #horsetrekking #trekking #wildernesstravel #naturelovers #dayride #expeditions #mongolianhorses #horsebackriding #altanulgii #goldencradle
Vanishing in the desert landscape..
.
Our camel guide heading home. After a few hours camel ride during our recent 10 day travel through the Mongolian Gobi we parted ways again.
.
The air was filled with dust from several days of desert wind, and the distant mountain ranges were obscured, appearing like brush strokes in a painting.
.
Our ride had started out in fairly cool conditions, with a cold morning breeze. But later the sun broke through and the air turned hot, still heavy with dust.
.
While we continued our travels by 4x4 vehicles, the camel guide set out for a forty mile ride home. As the pastures around here  were in rather poor condition, he had moved his home and herd to a better place, and brought the animals here the night before.
.
On our ride he pointed out the tracks on the desert soil from his ride the previous day -  neatly, equally spaced, the prints of five camels travelling alongside each other.
.
As we drove off, the little camel trek soon disappeared in the great desert landscape, with the air now starting to shimmer in the heat and contours diffused by its dust load.
.
While we had cars stocked with plenty of water and food, camping and communications equipment, the herder had only what he was wearing, along with his trusty camels and his knowledge and experience of desert travel..
.
And, a smart phone actually. He had snapped some photos, as all of us, during the trek, and he had shown me some great shots of desert wildlife he had taken earlier.
