Inner Mongolia CAS Trip
In an itinerary that feels like a movie adventure, students will journey to the grasslands and sand dunes of inner Mongolia for a taste of China that is sure to be something different. The trip kicks off with a visit to Buddhist monasteries followed by an authentic Mongolian feast. Adventures continue with students rotating in groups between learning Mongolian wrestling, horseback riding, archery, and how to prepare authentic Mongolian food. The itinerary continues to cover living and learning alongside local tribespeople about their nomadic lifestyles. Students will also see monuments raised to Genghis Khan, go sandboarding, ride ATVs, and go camel trekking. One of our most exciting itineraries!

Action; students will push themselves physically through the wealth of activities planned throughout the week. Horseback riding, dune sliding, and sandboarding etc… will be sure to give students a sense of pride in their physical accomplishments!
Ethnic/Cultural Diversity; though still within China, students will be quick to notice that these people live completely different lifestyles, with different cultural practices. Students will be immersing themselves in the best of Mongolian culture throughout the itinerary, experiencing their culinary, sports, spiritual, historical, and nomadic culture.
Service & Sustainability; Learning the lifestyle of the local nomadic tribespeople, students will be able to experience first-hand just how co-dependent these people’s lives are to the patterns of nature. Students should compare their experiences on the trip to those of their daily lives back home for an understanding of how environmental change and consumption affects real people’s livelihoods.
