    Rustic Pathways introduces students to Mongolia's unique "wild west." Amid stunning landscapes and nomadic lifestyles, students contribute to service projects, hike through mountains and sleep in traditinal gers. The program immerses students in Mongolian culture, nomadic traditions, and the country's rich history under Chinggis Khaan. We showcase Mongolia's impact on global culture & history, fostering appreciation for this lesser-known gem.

    Program Details for Mongolia: Off the Map

    Journey from the central Mongolian lowlands to the rugged mountains of the country’s wild west. Leave modern devices at home as you explore untamed regions and trek through the countryside. Glimpse an ancient way of life traveling from ger to ger across Mongolia’s arid steppe without the luxuries of electricity, running water, or paved roads. From Kazakh eagle hunting to Tuva throat singing, the nomadic herders of Mongolia maintain traditions that date back to before the empire of Chinggis Khaan. In remote western Mongolia, help a local NGO that offers herding families nutritional guidance, educational opportunities, and improved infrastructure. This is a challenging experience—an adventurous spirit, positive attitude, and keen sense of exploration are required.
