Day2. Trekking to Gunj monastery ruin.

After breakfast, we partake in a day hike outing, exploring the mountains in the immediate area. This light-duty jaunt with near empty packs helps to familiarize everyone with tundra walking and acts as a good introduction to the surface you'll be walking over in the next three days. You'll be delighted to see the variety and vivid colored wildflowers growing in some sparse looking country. If we're lucky we'll see a wild beer, deer or maybe a moose. This is very rugged country and their home. This monastery was built in around late of 1600. At this time was a hard time in Mongolia history and Manchu’s greatest emperor Kanxi was tooking the power of all China. Manchu had been trying to occupy Outher Mongolia (present time as Mongolia) and Oirots (West Mongolians) but still that time Mongols. Kangxi sent his own daughter for marry with one of the khan of Mongolia as secret agent.
 
Day3. Trekking through Zuun Bayan Mountain village.

We head up and over a notch in the chain of mountains in front of us. The descent is tricky and we travel cautiously. At the base is a bubbly creek with delicious water and home to a few pair of Rosy finches and some beautiful wildflowers. This day we'll make about 5 miles including two descents of 3 to 4 hundred feet each. Our camp is set up in a large bowl on the shore of another pristine lake near the crown of the mountains.

Day4. Trekking.

Lazy morning, our last day in the high alpine area of the trek. We climb over a rolling ridge and head through a long pass and a slow descent into the upper "river" region of our route. Views of the Mongolia Mountain Range and Terelj Mountains are superb and fantastic. This leg of the trek spans an area excellent for viewing wildlife. Today you return to Gorkhi-Terelj N.P through the Dund Bayan valley.
