    Chuulut Canyon to Khorgo Volcano

    June 25, 2018 in Mongolia

    This morning we will take a hike to the top of the „Khorgo Volcano“ and take in the incredible views over its perfect crater. From the top of the volcano we continue our hike though fields studded with pine trees, stopping off en route at the „Yellow Dog Cave“ an interesting volcanic phenomenon. We will then return to the truck and continue our journey north. We will aim wild camp tonight in the remote plains north of Khorgo. Explore the incredible volcanic landscape of Khorgo and Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake by foot.

    Rob ist in der Nacht um 02:00 mit dem truck angekommen. Mit unseren 3 Minivans fahren uns zum „Khorgo Volcano“ und sind dann zum Kraterrand hoch gewandert und hatten eine tolle Fernsicht. Ich muss mir aber unbedingt bei der nächsten Gelegenheit einen ernsthaften Schutz für mein iPhone kaufen. Eben ist mir das Telefon aus der Gürteltasche gefallen; und ich habe es nicht gemerkt. Glücklicherweise hat ein Teammitglied das gemerkt und es aufgehoben. Wie durch ein Wunder ist das Glas nicht zerbrochen.

    Khorgo Uul Vulkaan

    August 20, 2015 in Mongolia ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    Na wederom een zeer koude nacht (wit gras van de rijp) wordt deze ochtend de kachel voor ons aangemaakt. Zeer comfortabel! We hebben tot de lunch 'vrij' en dus tijd om een wasje te doen. Na de lunch staan onze paarden klaar. We rijden langs de met vulkanisch gesteente bezaaide naaldbossen en doorwaden te paard de kleine stroompjes van dit schitterende lavaveld. We stijgen af om naar de kratermond te klimmen en genieten van het waanzinnige uitzicht. Op de terugweg zijn we wat aan de paarden gewend en gaat het tempo omhoog. We spoelen de paardengeur af met een duik in het koele water van het meer. Na de lokale delicatesse marmot te hebben gegeten vroeg naar bed; morgen lange rit.Read more

    Khorgo Volcano

    November 22, 2017 in Mongolia ⋅ ☀️ -24 °C

    An extinct volcano that set off 9000 years ago and by the looks of it really blew it's lid as the top half of the mountain is missing and scattered all around the area around it in big chunks of basalt. The landscape leading to and on the side of the volcano was very cool, bare earth, boulder graveyards, many a bare trees, patchy snow with a new bout on vegre of falling. It felt as though the eruption had just happened and this was the winter fallout caused by an ash cloud. Just the me, Rachel and the guide scaling the side of the mountain to reach thee crater rim. Just before we peaked we were warned about loose footing and I definitely would not want to fall in after seeing the hole. It was huge!! Exactly what I would imagine a crater to look like but seeing it with my own eyes gave it a realness and a force behind what would cause such a big hole! After hiking the volcanoes of Indonesia and New Zealand all having humungous craters that once I was inside looked more like mountains rather than sides, it was cool to take it all in in its totality. We spent some time at the top before retreating to the car as the weather was turning and the snow was coming.Read more
