The rugged landscapes of Mongolia lure true adventurers from all over to come and experience a land like no other. The Mongolian wilderness boasts spectacular countryside, lush green valleys, remote arid desert, vast steppes, rocky mountain ranges and clear blue rivers. There’s good reason Mongolia is known as the land of the eternal blue sky.
In our adventure, we learn from three to four different NGOs that are all connected with the reality of life, faced by Mongolia’s herders in the 21st century. In tourism, Mongolia is frequently sold as a stereotype (nomads and a way of life untouched since Ghengis Khan). This idealised, or even romanticised view is far from the harsh reality and challenges faced by local herders.
Social Cycles will take you on a journey to interact and connect with local Non Government Organisations (NGOs) to find out more about this lifestyle, the opportunities they have and the challenges they must overcome. Research what really happens on the ground and out in the rural communities with Social Cycles in a holiday that carefully balances ethical research and local impact with cycling and site seeing.
