Big skies, cultural festivities and wide-open adventure is what our Mongolia trip is all about. On this trip, we’l gallop with nomadic families across emerald steppes, look up at the same cerulean skies as the ancient  Genghis Khan’s. We’ll swap stories with eagle hunters over steaming bowls of horse milk tea (yum!). In Mongolia, adventure isn’t found, it’s lived. Join us at one of the world’s wildest festivals, the Golden Eagle Festival, in a truly epic setting.

Magnificent Mongolia with Golden Eagle Festival As always with our Mudita Adventure trips, where other companies sell the tickets and use all the money as profit, we fund local projects. Here, in Mongolia, we’re working with a local NGO where we’ll be providing running water to a developing community currently living in gers/yurts (modified tents). During our time in Ulaanbaatar, we’ll visit the projects that we’ve funded, hear from the local stakeholders just how your money has helped and witness the results of the work in action. This project is one that Johnny and Josh have been planning for ages!
