Our experiences with Tim Cope in Mongolia are just the stuff of dreams.
The trip was absolutely superb and having Tim as our guide was such an amazing bonus!
Your local operators there are excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything went superbly well. The drivers were unrivalled. They multi-tasked as butchers, professional singers and entertainers.
I cannot praise the whole team enough..... It was a dream come true: to ride in the wake of Genghis Khan, on a Mongolian horse, wrapped in a deel!
Thank you so much for organising such a magnificent trip!
Email a Friend - Mongolia In the Footsteps of the Nomad with Tim Cope
Join Australian Adventurer, Tim Cope, for an unforgettable trekking adventure in western Mongolia. Recipient of the Tourism Excellence award by the Minister Oyunkhorol for his ongoing passion and promotion of the region, Tim is well placed to take us from Ulaanbaatar to Ulaangom in the west where we begin the trek in the Harhiraa mountains in the greater Altai range. This is home to a small and intriguing ethnic group called the 'Khotont.' Our trek follows the migratory routes of the Khotont families along the Harhiraa river gorge and eventually up to the spectacular high pass at 3000m between Harhiraa and Turgen peaks. Along the way we'll pass evidence of ancient nomadic people in the form of Turkic gravestone markers. The second half of the Harhiraa trek descends towards the Khovd River. The landscape of the Harhiraa is dominated by open slopes dotted with nomad tents, deep river gorges, alpine lakes, and the inspiring, glacier capped peaks of Harhiraa and Turgen. The second, less demanding part of the journey takes us to Olgiy, the capital of the Kazakh Province of Western Mongolia, and the spectacular mountain of 'Tsaast Uul'. It is here we will experience the Kazakh people who are renowned eagle hunters and trainers.
