MONGOLIA KHOVSGOL EXPEDITION
7 – 26 JULY 2013
In July 2013 Colonel John Blashford-Snell will lead an expedition to Northern Mongolia to carry out botanical, ornithological and zoological studies and provide aid to remote communities in the Khovsgol region. The scientific work will be coordinated with the National Herbarium and the National University under the overall direction of Professor Terbish.
The 18 day expedition will start and finish in Ulaanbaatar and attend the traditional Naadam Festival in the town of Moron where archery, horse racing and wrestling events are performed. They will also visit the Reindeer people and see their legendary Shamans in action.
Using local aircraft, 4 WD vehicles and horses, the team of up to 18 persons will move through the rolling countryside and sometimes along tracks in thick forest. Accommodation will be in tents and traditional gers. Mongolian cooks and interpreters will accompany the team.
Mongolian scientists will supervise the botanical, ornithological and zoological studies. The expedition’s medics and dentists will work with the local people and it is hoped to assist in the construction of a well to provide clean water in one area.
Applicants should be reasonably fit and able to ride.
