Early planning for Kazakhstan and Mongolia

Jump to last reply

Fodorites: I am in the early stages of planning for a trip to Central Asia next year. About two weeks of horseback riding (no set trails) in Kazakhstan and, then to UB for about a day and off to explore Mongolia's wilds. I am not slightest bit interested in the city. Rather, more so in the farthest I can get from it.

As an adventure traveler, I am most interested in looking at rough tours, by horse or camel or both. I will be landing on or about August 12th or 13th, and will have about 12 days in country. The Siberian reindeer tribe interests me a lot, and so does the Gobi desert.

Most group tours right now are breathtakingly expensive and I am far more interested in working with locals. So if anyone has recommendations for local folks, this is what I'd prefer in order to support communities with my stories, and to also better engage financially.

Thanks as always to all for your suggestions. Please keep in mind that I do not like expensive hotels, I live in buggy dirty tents when I travel, that is my way. That's why they call it adventure travel.

A trip report will follow. There is plenty of time to gather suggestions. I have already found out how unresponsive folks are from there which is why I am starting my inquiries now.
