“This book is well thought out, and sets the information out in a quick and easy way to plan accordingly.

About the Authors : Silvia and Pyn from Always Wandering

Silvia and Pyn successfully rode, unguided and unsupported through the Altai Mountains in Tavan Bogd National Park, West Mongolia at the end of the 2017 Mongolian summer. After buying two horses, a camel and a dog they navigated through the steppe, riding for a month over passes and through valleys. During that month they experienced all types of weather, no villages or towns, ate with eagle hunters and regularly interacted with the sparse nomadic community.
