Australian Mongolian operated Tour company – Karakorum Expeditions
Introducing the team
Graham Taylor, Principal. Graham founded Karakorum Expeditions in 1997 at the completion of a 1,200-mile horse trek through central Mongolia sponsored by the Australian Geographical Society. Graham is no newcomer to adventure and brings many years’ experience as a cyclist, canoeist, mountaineer and adventurer. You will find more about his personal adventures in Mongolia at (www.mongoliadreaming.com). A Mechanical Engineer by profession, he is our lead trekking guide (not to mention our vegetarian menus…!)
Ichinghoroo Tsend-Ochir, Director. Tsend-Ochir brings over thirty five years of experience in the Mongolian travel industry, and has been involved with the company since its inception. As the first employee of the former state-owned ‘Juulchin’ travel company (in 1965), he has held various positions in sports administration in Mongolia including International Director for the Mongolian Olympic Committee. Tsend-Ochir maintains our government and industry contacts, and actively contributes to development of cultural itineraries.
Namnan Bat-Erdene, Accountant. Baggi keeps our books in line and up-to-date with the authorities. A wiz with Excel, we have just upgraded to Quickbooks and he is relishing the challenge of getting all that carefully structured financial information into the new system. In the summertime Baggi rides to work on his trusty old 10-speed – remind us to upgrade him to a Diamond Back mountain bike!
