I've never seen as many baby animals as when I travelled through the Mongolian country side. . . . . #mongolia #hiddenadventurer

The Great White Lake is large enough to resemble an inland sea. There are beaches and seagulls, thus it is easy to forget it is a fresh water lake. It is believed to have been created 8000 years ago, when the neighboring volcano erupted and the lava dammed the river. Nowadays it is a beautiful destination for a peaceful time out with nature. . . . . #mongolia #hiddenadventurer

The Khorgo volcano erupted 8000 years ago, sending rocks and magma all over the place, which can still be seen today. Now the volcano is inactive and has two craters that you can climb the side of the mountain to view. There was a local market at the start of the walk which offered jewellery and novelty items made of magma from the area or animal bone. . . . . #mongolia #hiddenadventurer

During my travels in Mongolia most of the dogs looked like this one. Some were territorial, others friendly and playful. All of them were able to roam free. This one liked to watch me in the morning while I ate breakfast. . . . . . . #mongolia #hiddenadventurer

Standing before the expanse of the Great White Lake had me pondering on the power of nature in our lives. For me, nature plays a large role in my mental health and well being. It is one of the many reasons I love to travel, and why I came to Mongolia. . . . "At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature" - Henry David Thoreau #mongolia #hiddenadventurer

These Russian vans are used by most of the tour companies in Mongolia. This is because the vans are easy to fix and can traverse the many off-road areas. This is how I arrived at Khorgo Terk National Park, which is a 10 hour drive west from the capital of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar. This national park includes the Khorgo Crater and Great White Lake. Both is a must see on your journey through this unforgettable country. . . . . . . . #Mongolia #Asia #travel #adventure #explore #hiddenadventurer #mustsee #travelblogger #travelling #travelphotography #travelbug #traveltheworld #travelgram #van #country #instapic #instagood #instago #instalike #bluesky #landscape #gopro #commentforcomment #comment4comment #likeme #likeforlikes #followback #followforfollow #instatravel

When was the last time you felt truly happy or free? Personally I feel this way when I am travelling or exploring. Doing what you love serves your soul, and for me, I feel my soul is best served when in nature and travelling. Don't be afraid to follow what makes you happy. . . . . . #travel #mongolia #Asia #nature #naturephotography #naturelover #travelblogger #travelphotography #trekking #traveltheworld #travelbug #adventure #explore #hiddenadventurer #dayout #clouds #view #valley #instapic #instagood #instago #instalike #likeforlikes #commentforcomment #comment4comment #followback #followforfollow

Above Tovkhon Monastery lie these spirit stones. There are no paths up the cliff and instead is more like free climbing in a line of people eager to see the sights of the valley above the monastery. . . . . . . #Mongolia #Asia #travel #adventure #travelblogger #travelphotography #explore #trekking #traveltheworld #hiddenadventurer #bluesky #buddhism #gopro #instatravel #landscape #instapic #instagood #instago #instalike #likeforlikes #commentforcomment #comment4comment #followback

The Buddhist Tovkhon Monastery is one hour hike through the forest and wildflowers on a muddy path. It was established in 1648 but had been damaged over the years with recent restoration in 1997 and it is now considered a UNESCO world heritage site. The monastery was built on the side of the cliff overlooking the valley and forest. Each building holds a special atmosphere. . . . . . . . #monastery #mongolia #asia #buddhism #valley #forest #view #nationalpark #nature #bluesky #clouds #naturephotography #travel #travelblogger #trekking #travelphotography #travelblog #traveltheworld #travelbug #gopro #instapic #instagood #instago #likeforlikes #commentforcomment #comment4comment #followforfollow #followback

Horses have always had a special place in my heart. I'll never forget riding across the valleys and mountains of central Mongolia. . . . . . . #Mongolia #Asia #travel #horseriding #horse #horseblogger #trekking #travelphotography #traveltheworld #travelling #travelblogger #travelbug #instahorse #instapic #instagood #instago #instalike #gopro #commentforcomment #comment4comment #likeforlikes #likeme #followforfollow #followback #followme #bluesky

Situated in the UNESCO World Heritage valley, the Orkhorn Waterfall is part of the Orkhon river which is the longest river in Mongolia. The water doesn't run all year, and in winter it is a popular spot for ice climbing. Walking down to the base of the waterfall is a vertical scramble down the track in the side of the cliffs and I had to be careful of where I placed my feet to be sure not to fall. It was a beautiful site to end the day with. . . . . . . . . #mongolia #Asia #waterfall #nationalpark #natgeoyourshot #naturephotography #nature #beautiful #clouds #instapic #travelblogger #travel #trekking #travelphotography #explore #traveltheworld #travelbug #destination #adventure #dayout #remote #gopro #instagood #goprohero7black #instago #likeme #likeforlikes #commentforcomment #followback #followforfollow

Have you ever seen a baby yak? During summer in Mongolia there are so many calves, foals and kids in the herds. This one allowed me to take it's picture as it had wandered a little from the heard while his friends slept nearby. Yaks are one of the primary herds, providing milk for the families. . . . . . . . #yak #mongolia #asia #animals #calf #travelblogger #travel #explore #adventure #bluesky #naturephotography #nature #cute #instapic #instagood #instago #travelphotography #travelblog #traveltheworld #travelbug #travelling #instatravel #likeme #likeforlikes #comment4comment #commentforcomment #followforfollow #followback #followme

Sometimes it is best to sit and appreciate the world around you. With no service for most of my trip through Mongolia, it forced me to focus on the beautiful environments I found myself in. I feel people who live in Gers are more connected to their world and it's certainly something I need to integrate more into my life. Sometimes we all need a break from technology. . . . . . . #mongolia #Asia #traveltheworld #travelbug #travelling #traveblog #tourist #adventure #explore #instapic #instagood #nationalpark #natgeoyourshot #gopro #goprohero7black #green #bluesky #hiddendestinations #hiddenadventurer #followback #followforfollow #instago #comment4comment #commentforcomment #likeforlikes #likeme #instatravel

The horse I rode grazing after a log day ride to many of the lakes in the region. Mongolian horses are a very study breed, able to withstand the harsh winters down to -40*C and warm summer of up to 30*C. They are allowed to roam free around camp in their herds and live partly wild. . . . . . . . . #horse #horseriding #mongolia #asia #nationalpark #travelbug #natgeoyourshot #travelling #naturephotography #nature #travel #adventure #explore #gopro #goprohero7black #hiddendestinations #go #hiddenadventurer #instapic #instagood #instago #instalike #likeforlikes #comment4comment #commentforcomment #followback #followme #instahorse

One of the aspects that drew me to Mongolia is the amazing horse culture. As someone who has had an affinity with horses from a young age, riding through the Orkhon and 8 Lakes regions of Mongolia has been a dream of mine for years. Tash, the man in the blue deel and owner of our horses also lent me the beautiful purple deel for the four-day ride. The deel is a traditional riding garment which came in handy, particularly when we were rained on. Horses are not usually named in Mongolia, so I referred to mine as 'Pinto' due to his colouring.  I was told he was the fastest horse Tash had. He was a fantastic horse and certainly one of the fastest I have ridden, unfortunately, I didn't get any footage of his gallop but it was amazing. Tash genuinely cared about his horses and made us feel welcome, especially with his beautiful singing of Mongolian folk songs during some of our rides. I can't wait to return. . . . . . . . #horseriding #asia #travel #traveltheworld #explore #horse #mongolia #deel #green #bluesky #gpro #goprohero7black #riding #natgeoyourshot #naturephotography #video #hiddenadventurer #adventure #explore #destination #travelbug #travelblogger #traveblog #instagood #instagood #instatravel #instame #likeforlikes #comment4comment #followback

The 8 Lakes region of Mongolia is easier to get to by horse than car. A four hour horse ride over the mountains from the Orkhorn Valley rather than an 8 hour car ride, longer if you get bogged. We stayed with a family overlooking Bellybutton lake in the Naiman Nurr region, surprisingly there were many sea gulls here even though we are hundreds of miles from the ocean. Our Ger was nice and warm, giving us a great view over the lake and valley. . . . . . . #mongolia #asia #ger #travel #naimannuur #beautiful #nature #lake #nationalpark #dayout #naturephotography #travelbug #travelblogger #traveltheworld #travelphotography #exolore #natgeoyourshot #gopro #goprohero7black #bluesky #destination #remote #hiddendestinations #hiddenadventurer #adventure #comment4comment #likeforlikes #followforfollow
