Nomadic Trails is an adventure travel company founded in 2004 by the current Head of Operation Mr. Tulga Otgonbaatar.
We specialize in Custom tours and Original small group tours to unique destinations of Mongolia. Similarly, we introduce travelers to authentic nomadic culture and other fragile cultures in Mongolia.
It is imperative that our traveler groups be limited to a maximum number of 12 travelers. Because most importantly these small groups offer you more access to fragile cultures and better opportunities to interact with local people. With the passion we have for what we do, we are very happy – and in fact, feel privileged – to provide extraordinary and authentic travel experiences to our clients all around the World.
Why Nomadic Trails?
To us Responsible Travel coincides with Responsible Business, designing adventures with the local people, culture, and eco-system in mind.
We realize that taking clients through these fragile regions can have a detrimental impact if not handled responsibly. As a result, on all of our tours, we go to great lengths to minimize the negative and accentuate the positive so that the tours also benefit the people whose lands we are privileged to visit. And it is this ethos that has seen our company grow and our clients return to us again.
We guarantee that when designing our tours, we utilize our 15+ years of local knowledge and experience to break down barriers and provide ethical business for lesser-known areas with so much to offer.
Why Nomadic Trails Tour Leaders and Tour guides?
Firstly, our tour leaders and guides will be your tour companions and best friends if you are a history lover. Even when you simply want to know a bit more than information from leaflets, they are your go-to person.
Secondly, all Nomadic Trails tour leaders are highly experienced and are working for over 15+ years in the tourism industry. Furthermore, all of our tour guides have trained either with Nomadic Trails experts or with the Mongolian Professional Tour Guides Association. Therefore, they are highly skilled in giving you secure access to fragile cultures, and better opportunities to interact with the locals.
Similarly, all our team members, including our drivers and chefs, guarantee that you are not making any negative impact while you are with local communities and in the wilderness.
We pride ourselves on our challenging perceptions and raising awareness through low-impact experiences and ethical business, not only just through our charity work towards local communities. This is the biggest reason why tour leaders or tour guides are essential on our tours.
The third reason why tour leaders are essential on our tours is that adventure, expedition-tented, and special tours all require a professional touch to be successfully organized. Special tours such as museum guiding, horse riding, photography, movie-making, birding, wildlife spotting, fishing, shamanism-spiritual and religious tours.
Get to know the Nomadic Trails team:
TulgaHead of Operation, Tour Leader
From the soul of steppe nomads, Tulga grew up in the Gobi area where giant sand dunes, camels, and the most hospitable people in the world live! Tulga likes to cheer up his “Wind Horse” (spiritual mind) by riding Mongolian horses through the open steppe rather than going to the monastery to pray. Tulga spends a lot of time in the Taiga area of the Siberian Mountains. There he loves to spend his time with the reindeer herders learning more about their unique culture. He studied tourism in Mongolia and the United States of America. In his career, he has summited Mount Khuiten (4374m) the tallest peak of the Altai Tavan Bogd Mountains. He also trekked across Potanin glacier, one of the biggest in Mongolia, and cross country dog sledded in –40°C. He is a first-rate tour leader and we are proud to call him ‘our man in Mongolia’.
