Orkhon Valley and Central Mongolia
The UNESCO listed World Heritage Site of the Orkhon Valley spreads across thousands of acres of ancient pastureland in the heart of Mongolia, along the banks of the Orkhon River. Home to nomadic herders that still graze their horses on these fertile plains, central Mongolia is a cradle of culture and tradition set amongst some of the most arrestingly beautiful natural scenery on earth.
The vast river valleys and sprawling pasturelands of central Mongolia and the Orkhon Valley are celebrated as the cradle of traditional Mongolian culture. Protected by UNESCO, these lush rolling steppes are home to many nomadic tribespeople, living in traditional felt gers and grazing their livestock amongst the stunning scenery of the Orkhon River valley. Visit the thundering Orkhon Falls, experience daily life on the steppe and embrace the essence of the traditional Mongolian way of life by riding on horseback across the plains, past grazing herds of sheep and goats, a pastime unchanged for millennia.
