Volunteer and Horse Riding trip
only 449 USD
Last chance, before 31st December 2016
Dear friends and volunteers,
Our Volunteering with Horseback Riding Trip offers participants the opportunity to explore Mongolian nomadic life, awe-inspiring a unique area of unsurpassed geographical and human diversity, with forest, desert, steppe and lakelands populated by over 15 distinct ethnic groups, while simultaneously making a much-needed, positive impact in the lives of the underprivileged children of Mongolia who live in orphanages and poorest ger (Mongolian felt tent) street that are resource poor and understaffed.
The program starts with 12 days of volunteer work helping the deprived children after which you will join 2-day Horseback Riding Trip in Karakorum, ancient Mongolian capital.
Karakorum, the ancient capital of Mongolia from where Chinggis Khan launched his cavalry. There is a small town here now. On arrival the first and most obvious landmark is the vast wall of Erdenezuu Monastery. The monastery was built in 1586 and is surrounded by a massive 400m x 400m wall. Not a single nail was used in the construction of the ornate temples, only a few of which remain standing after the communist purges.
Mongolia is one of the greatest lands of horseback riding tours and horseback trekking. There are more than 2.5 million horses in Mongolia. Horses are deeply embedded within Mongolia’s culture; they are an indication of a man’s wealth. The pace of life is governed by the speed of the horse and horses are woven into Mongolian song, verse and history. Infants are taught to ride before they walk, and a young man’s prowess is measured by his skill as a horseman. Participants will also be treated to a one-day tour of the famous and wondrous city of Ulaanbaatar - experiencing the country through the eyes of its warm, hospitable people.
Compared to other International volunteer organizations, we offers incredibly competitive rates for our programs. The entire New Choice organization relies on volunteer contributions in order to stay alive, and attain our goals - empowering local communities.
