Finding the horses on a hot day was difficult, but the guide made the journey interesting by sharing information about Mongolia. We stopped from time to time to enjoy views. The drive looking for the horses had challenging roads in places. The guide did a great job navigating the roads. On the return, we stopped at a local restaurant for a nice lunch, which was included in the tour package. Thank you for a fun first day in Mongolia.
