TRAVEL

July 10th-21st 2019

DO THE EXCEPTIONAL

Mongolia is a country without fences. It invites us to follow our heart and our souls, leaving the fences behind. This is real Mongolia.

You will do something very few people have done before: An expedition to the remote living reindeer breeders of the Dukha tribe. Their life is ruled by the needs of their herds and the spirit world of the shamans. You will experience an extraordinary journey to the soul of Mongolia.

28peaks makes you a better photographer.

QUALITY AND SATISFACTION WITH 28PEAKS

During our years as organizers of photo travel, we have created great tours to different countries : Mexico, Tunisia, Morocco, Mongolia, Portugal, France and Spain with world-famous photographers such as Tony Stromberg, Tim Flach and Raphael Macek. In Mongolio we will work with Bayar Balgantseren who will lead us together with an experience local guide to the Dukha tribe. As a small family business we do not lose track of all the important details and we are fully involved in every process and stage of the tour. Therefor we have to emphasize that you have to be able to sit on a horse for a howl day. Your safety and well-beeing is our main concern.
