I couldn't have asked for a better trip! It was simply everything I could hope for. Mongolia is an amazing country and I dream of going back as soon as possible. Zavkhan Trekking was great, had amazing locals to help us. Best crew and wranglers, and missing them already!

The mixed group of ages and nationalities was very, very good. All Mongolians were absolutely friendly, sensitive and helpfully. The Newzealand trip leader could speak a little bit more, but he was also very friendly and interested in doing a great trip for us.

Wow! Mongolia is amazing, and I can't think there's a better way to see the countryside and meet some people than from horseback with John and his fantastic team! I had a brilliant time and can't recommend it enough to anyone relatively fit with a healthy sense of adventure - best thing I've ever done (to date!)

Zavkhan trekking gives you a real feel for the country and is an experience I won't forget. The people were fantastic, communication before the trip was great and the trip itself was 11/10. You know its good when you want to go back as soon as you leave, big thanks to John and the Mongolian team for a unique, enjoyable... More

Hi Caitlin, Thank you for the recommendation. If we can get more people like you and J on our trips, that would be great! I know the local team loved having you both along. Mongolia suited you! Thanks again, John More

Just finished a trek across the Zavkhan province with these guys. What a fabulous trip. The horses...the camp sites...the support crew...the views...the whole package was far better than expected. If you in any doubt and you like riding...even basic...do it. The country is one of a kind and the Zavkhan trekking guys will take you places and show you parts... More

Thanks for your feedback A, always good to have a fellow Kiwi along, even one who has defected to the Dark Side...great group of people to start the season with in Zavkhan. I always enjoy riding with Dondov, Tsoj, and Adya, they are master horsemen, and the whole team are what really made it unforgettable. It was good from my... More

Went with this company because the trips were small and off the beaten track, way off the beaten track which was awesome!! John was great to work with to plan for the trip and once in Mongolia everything was handled well. The staff was fantastic and a joy to get to know from the drivers to the wranglers, cook and...

Right from the start we had a good feeling about this company, although sometimes communication with John took some time because of his trekkings. Nonetheless our emails were responded and a customized itinerary through the Altai mountains was created. John emphasized that the itinerary was not set in stone, so it was possible to change activities in a way we... More

My fiancé David and I went on a fourteen day horse riding adventure in Sept. 2015. I had been wanting to explorer Mongolia and the country side for a few years when I stumbled on Zavkhan Trekking. BEST DECISION EVER!!! We could not have picked a better company to go with. Neither David nor myself had any experience riding horses... More

I joined the August 2015 Altai Trip. The Mongolian countryside is something that I've wanted to experience for years and Zavkhan Trekking is the perfect company to do it with. No amount of researching and google-imaging can prepare you for the beauty and variety of the Mongolian landscape - it's something that you definitely need to experience first hand to... More

Hi Chris, Thanks for your great review, you sum up the experience nicely. Hopefully you will keep up with the riding?! It's the perfect way to travel in a country like Mongolia with a living horse culture. Jen and Anar will be pleased to also read your review. Thanks, John More
