The Altai Tavan Bogd (5 Kings) mountains are the highest peaks in the Mongol Altai Range, which stretches some 2,000km from the Gobi desert to the Greater Himalaya in Pakistan.

In far Western Mongolia, in the remotest corner of the Altai Mountains, lies the Tavan Bogd range.  Home to Lynx, Golden Eagle and the elusive Snow Leopard, the range feeds Mongolia’s longest glacier, the stunning, 19km long Potanin.

Altai Tavan Bogd consists of 5 peaks: Khuiten (Mongolia's highest mountain at 4,374m), Nairamdal (4,082m), Malchin (4,037m), Olgii (4,050m) and Burged (4,068m).  We will aim to climb Khuiten, Malchin and Nairamdal, which marks the intersection between the Russian, Chinese and Mongolian borders (you won't get all the stamps in your passport, but you can claim to have been there). Malchin’s ridgeline forms the border of Mongolia and Russia, providing a spectacular bird’s-eye view of the Potanin glacier, numerous glaciated peaks and Russia (including the 4,500m massif of Russia's Mt.Belukha).

The steep ascent of the challenging Khuiten will involve glacier travel and ice/snow climbing to a maximum angle of 50 degrees.
