Western part of Mongolia
Western Mongolia holds some of Asia's most beautiful and unspoiled wilderness, where the snow-capped Altai Mountains tower above remote forests, lakes, and rivers. Teeming with wildlife, including endangered snow leopards and antelope, this region contains the most impressive of Mongolia's mountain scenery, and is a prime destination for adventurous climbers and hikers. We invite you to explore the highlights of western Mongolia. Western Mongolia is famous for being the home for a dozen ethnic groups of Mongolia and the Kazakh people and is the least traveled area of the country.
