Mongolia, 4 1/2 times the size of Germany, is the most sparsely populated state in the world with 3 million inhabitants. The country is home to more horses than people.

The goals of the Pegasus Expedition are Inner Mongolia and the Gorchi Tereldsch National Park near Ulaanbaatar


Expedition profile

We would like to offer you an adventure trip of a livetime. Our flight and riding experiences are in the foreground this time. That is why we limit ourselves to Inner Mongolia in this huge highland, which is around 1400 meters above sea level.

Therefore, the road trip will only be the means to an end. With approx. 1000 km driving distance back and forth to our "playgrounds" of the steppe, mountain and hill landscape of the Changai Mountains and the Gorchi Tereldsch National Park.

We set up our base camp near Karakorum, the ancient Mongol capital of Genghis Khan.

From there we ride and fly along the Orkhon River.

The cultural offer must not be neglected on our trip, which is why the two-day Naadam Festival is the highlight.

Once the center of the largest empire in the world in terms of area

Itinerary

1 day:

Flight with Aeroflot via Moscow or with Turkish Airlines via Istanbul. From Ulaanbaatar airport we will be taken by taxi to the hotel Nine Ulaanbaatar in the center.

Upon arrival we have the option of a city tour, a visit to the National Museum of Mongolia or, if the flight was too exhausting, just chill out in the hotel.

 

2 day

After breakfast our driver picks us up from the hotel. We leave the hectic city towards the west. The journey to Kharkhorin takes about 5 hours.

Red sky, greetings from the Gobi desert

Our home on this expedition: Ger or yurt camps

 

Next door to the old mansion of Genghis Khan, we check into a ger camp. If the wind is good for soaring in the afternoon, we can spread our wings for the first time on the nearby hill.

3rd day

On this day we inquire about the area, unless there are great flight conditions, then we start our adventure immediately.

 

4th + 5th + 6th + 7th + 8th + 9th day

During these days we will carry out the riding and flight excursions depending on the prevailing conditions.

Depending on the flight weather, we decide whether we want to make the journey along the Orkhon River in the south-west via a cross-country flight or, if the wind is not favorable, ride the horses up the river.

The plan would be to spend our days with an escort vehicle paragliding or riding following the course of the river.

10th day:

Should the land darken under the blue sky, we have the hot and healing thermal springs on offer as a bad weather program.

 
 

11th + 12th day

NAADAM - the national festival of the Mongols: Well then let's go to a party ;-))

 

13th day

We drive back towards Terenj, this village is located in the Gorchi Tereldsch National Park. On the way there we pass the Genghis Khan statue.

14th day

We spend the last day of this incredible journey with the Bolders in the National Park.

15th day

Today we start our journey home, with a lot of successful and breathtaking adventures in mind.

The Pegasus Expedition will certainly remain in unforgettable memories.
