1 Day Exposure Trip “10 km of Contrast”
We will set off in the morning for a drive of ten kilometres to first-hand witness the contrasts of the Mongolian capital, from the landfills into Ulaanbaatar City. Our trip will end with a dinner over which we’ll contemplate the reality and challenges of ‘what is best for Mongolia and its nomadic tribes’.
3 Days Exposure Trip “Land Rights and Gold Mining”
On the first day, we will visit the Zaamar region, a major gold mining area in the Tuul River valley, about 170 km west of Ulaanbaatar, where there are approximately twenty gold mining sites at present. On the second day, we will visit Noyon Mountain region about 100 km north of Ulaanbaatar where mining operations have just begun. A bid by a Canadian gold mining company to strip-mine part of northern Mongolia’s protected Noyon Mountain Forest is causing outrage in Mongolia.
