Gobi Desert Explorer

The world famous Gobi Desert is an astonishing region blessed with true remoteness and rugged beauty. We explore the impressive Gobi Gurvan Saikhan National Park, named for the mountain range which flanks the eastern half of the park. It is also home to the largest sand dunes in Mongolia at Khongoriin Els. Due to the sound the dunes make on a windy day they are known as the 'singing dunes'. We experience this region on a series of day walks, jeep rides and a camel trek with local nomads, whilst staying in traditional 'Ger' camps with Mongolian families.

ItineraryExpand
Day 1
This morning you will meet your guide and transfer to the airport for the flight to Dalanzadgad, the centre of the South Gobi province. The flight takes approximately one and a half hours, and on arrival we will be met by our local driver and transferred to a ger camp for lunch. In the afternoon we drive to the Gobi Gurvan Saikhan National Park. The park lies on the northern edge of the Gobi desert, and at nearly 27,000 square kilometres is the largest national park in Mongolia. Our destination is the Flaming red cliffs at Bayanzag. This area is famous as the American explorer and naturalist, Roy Chapman Andrews, led a series of dinosaur expeditions here in the 1920s. The dinosaur skeletons discovered during his expeditions are now kept in the Natural History Museum of America. Late this afternoon we head back to camp for dinner and our first overnight experience in a ger.
Day 2
Following breakfast we drive deep into the Gobi desert to the Khongoryn Els sand dunes. The ride may be bumpy but you will be rewarded with incredible desert scenery of flat stony plains, outcrops of vegetation, rugged rock formations, and herds of wild antelope racing across the plains. The Khongoryn Els sand dunes - know as the 'Singing Sands', cover 965kmĀ², and are considered some of the most spectacular in Mongolia. We spend the afternoon exploring this surreal landscapes by 4WD.
Day 3
Today is a rest day at the sand dunes. We will walk up to the sand hills, visit a local family and ride two humped camels along the sand dunes. Riding camels is relatively easy with their gentle gait and slow steady pace. Mongolians use bright, colourful, hand-made saddles for riding which sit between the two humps of the camels. It is important not to frighten or upset the camels, so no wild or sudden movements! Tonight you can relax in camp and look at the stars in the clear Mongolian sky.
Day 4
Today we will set off again by 4WD and drive to Gobi Gurvan Saikhan Mountain, Eagle Valley (Yol Am). Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful regions in Mongolia, Yol Am is nestled deep within the hills and is a haven from the desert heat. Some areas of the valley are continually sheltered from the hot sun and house a large ice field that gradually melts away during the summer months. We embark on a walk in the valley with plenty of time to stop, rest, and enjoy a packed lunch. If we are lucky we will also see wild mountain goats jump high on the cliff walls and large birds of prey circling overhead in the sky. Tonight we celebrate our final night in a nearby Ger camp.
Day 5
After breakfast we will transfer to the local airport for our flight back to Ulaanbaatar. On arrival in Ulaanbaatar we will be transferred to the centre of town, or your hotel, where the trip concludes.
