Climb Mount Khuiten
Mount Khuiten is part of a mountain chain called Tavan Bogd, meaning "five saints" with each of the peak names representing simple meanings: Friendship, Herder, Eagle, Cradle and Cold.
The peaks and associated glaciers are part of a National Park that borders Mongolia, China and Russia. A wild, remote, beautiful wilderness made up of spectacular flowering fields and vast open mountain tundra, inhabited only by traditional herding families and abundant wildlife. It’s easy for a traveler to be quickly swept away by the endless green steppes, the heartiness of the Kazakh nomads, and the rolling landscapes that define the Altai Mountains. This makes the trek to Mount Khuiten as enjoyable and scenic as the climb itself.
To reach it, trekkers must cross a golden, vast, and barren landscape that is one of the last remote regions on Earth. This remarkable journey is enhanced by the gentle hospitality of the Kazakh nomads.
