Trek to blue Lake; Arkhangaï region
20 and 30 kilometers a day; during 8 days:
Discover the history of the Tamir valley and its herders, day after day, until the blue Lake, goal of the hike.
Trekking in partnership with the local NGO Ger to Ger (see section Traveling Smart)
The Blue lake trekking Route , was created in order to give the possibility to nomadic herders to get benefits from the tourism sector, by creating a complementary income through a sustainable management of resources.
The route to blue Lake has been set up by a partnership between Ger to Ger, the Mongolian Guide Association and the agency Wind of Mongolia.
A very strict management of the project is necessary to open a route for foreigners, to preserve nomadic way of life and the environment.
Only small groups at the same time will be sent on the route.
Nomads will be your host during these 8 days, but also your guides. They will share with you their land, their life, their history.
