Join us on a one-of-a-kind journey to one of the world’s last unspoilt destinations – the steppes of the Khangai Mountains in western Mongolia.
This transformative travel experience is exclusively guided by Nancy Johnston, eco-luxury pioneer and founder of the house of Tengri.
Sourcing sustainable rare fibres for Tengri clothing and interiors takes us to remote corners of western Mongolia. Our in-depth, first-hand knowledge of this stunning landscape means we are uniquely positioned to offer fully immersive experiences, beyond the scope of traditional travel companies.
To ensure you experience the truly authentic culture of the Khangai region, you will travel with an inspiring team of experts, ranging from global pioneers to local gurus, expedition chefs, wildlife trackers and storytellers. Their local knowledge and insights will reveal the intricate patterns and connections between the land, its people and wildlife.
In this rugged, unspoilt part of the world you’ll encounter nomadic herders – custodians of the majestic Khangai lands for countless generations – and indigenous animals such as the semi-wild Khangai yak, the sustainable source of Tengri’s fibres.
A springtime journey offers you behind-the-scenes access to the combing season, where the story of Tengri yarn begins. For summer visits, the trip includes the traditional Yak Festival, celebrating this noble beast in a colourful homage.
Together with our partners, herder families, local conservationists, specialist travel providers, local and national government, we offer one-of-a-kind trips centred around the preservation of indigenous communities and wildlife. Your bespoke journey forms part of our wider nature conservancy project, supporting the Wildlife Conservation Society’s work in remote Mongolia.
We invite you to begin your journey with us, to join our discerning community of global citizens taking positive steps for global environmental change.
