Nomadic Expeditions Celebrates 20 Years with a Trip of a Lifetime

  • Amanda Millin

Nomadic Expeditions—known for its adventure trips through Tibet, China, Bhutan, Mongolia, and Siberia—celebrates its 20th anniversary with a unique trip through its home country of Mongolia. The 20th Anniversary Founders Expedition will be led by Nomadic Expeditions’ founder and president Jalsa Urubshurow and several other travel experts including National Geographic Traveler editor Costas Christ. Highlights on the trip include private meetings with professional hunters in Kazakhstan who use golden eagles to track prey, and Gandan monastery’s Hamba Lama, Mongolia’s highest-level Buddhist leader. The itinerary includes sight-seeing in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, camping in traditional canvas gers in the Gobi desert, searching Hustain Nuruu National Park for what may be the world’s last wild horse species, and hiking through the Altai Mountains’ Yol Valley. The 11-day excursion, which takes place October 3 to 14, 2012, is $13,800 per person for double occupancy, and single accommodations are $15,000. (609.860.9008, www.nomadicexpeditions.com)
