About This Trip
On this journey, you will dive head-first into Mongolian culture, religion and history. Learn how the vast green grasslands and never-ending blue skies gave life to the once thriving Mongol Empire. Spend a night in a traditional yurt and share a meal with nomadic travelers, all before having loads of desert fun.

Camping at Everest Base Camp was outstanding and the Sakya Monastery experience was remarkable. In fact, nothing (about the trip) was disappointing. It really was exceptional.
Dulwich Beijing, Jun 2017
A huge thank you to all of the WildChina staff for their outstanding care, provision and planning, to make the Year 9 trip such an enormous success. It was a truly remarkable trip and one that we will all never forget. A survey went out yesterday and out of 122 students the trip received an overall rating of 4.74 out of 5!! A true testament to the magnificent work done by all of your team to make this unique but quite extraordinary vision a reality!
K.C., Aug 2018
We were pleased with the professional attitude of all, from the first contact to the guides in each city. I want to give special kudos to Mei Zhang, Maynard Zhang and Jasmine Zhai. The customer-oriented culture of the company is a tribute to Mei's leadership and vision for WildChina and how every person interacts with clients. Maynard was also helpful as the local US representative to make sure that our program interests were shared with the staff in China. Jasmine was terrific in making our arrangements, always answering our questions promptly and addressing issues during the actual program.
