Travel Channel called this All Female Journey one of the ‘Ultimate Women Only Trips’ of the year.

Globe + Tribe’s inaugural All Female Journey to Mongolia is sure to be a transformational experience.

Join us on an all female departure small group journey to Mongolia in September/October 2019. This 12 day/12 night exploration will take us to explore the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, to Eastern Mongolia to explore the vast steppeland and then off to Bayan-Ölgii to witness the annual nomadic Golden Eagle Festival.

After a night’s rest upon arrival in Ulaanbaatar we will head east to explore the arid steppeland of Eastern Mongolia. Here we will explore by foot, 4X4 and camel for 4 days/ 3 nights whilst staying in semi-temporary gers (yurts) before heading back to Ulaanbaatar for one night prior to departing for Western Mongolia.

When we arrive in Ölgii prior to the festival we will explore this beautiful part of Western Mongolia and learn about the Kazakh nomadic hunters and how they hunt with their eagles during the winter months (NB: The domestic eagles that are used for hunting are all FEMALE!). Read about the 13 year old Eagle Huntress who won the annual competition in 2014 here.

After the festival we will head back to Ulaanbaatar and overnight. The final day will be spent just outside of the city with a Mongolian Shamanic community learning about this way of life and witnessing a sacred ceremony.

An abbreviated trip of 8 days is available which excludes 4 nights in Eastern Mongolia.

Accommodations include 4* hotels in Ulaanbaatar and temporary + traditional Ger Camp tents outside of Ulaanbaatar. All meals are included except your first lunch and dinner upon arrival in Ulaanbaatar as are all transfers during all scheduled activities including airport transfers.
