Our guides will ensure that all the activities are appropriate for your children, however young they may be

Young children love hiding in the forests, running across meadows, riding gentle horses whilst holding onto a horseman or parent, and especially swimming in a lake from a sandy beach and seeing the snow-capped mountains in the distance

In 1974 the tower was partly restored and now we will be able to climb up inside the tower and enjoy the beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. Around the tower we find Balbals (gravestones) from between the 6th and 10th centuries. The newly built small museum contains more artifacts collected in this area. Stay in yurt.

Mountain passes, bad tracks, off-road, and firm climbs over 3000 m characterize this route.
Not all slopes are steep, but some are very long and on dirt roads.
But it is worth the effort.
