TOUR OVERVIEW

The Gobi Desert is a stunning place to visit, famous for its vast and empty steppes, enormous sand dunes, hidden beauties, and camel-herding nomads. It's the largest and coldest desert in the world, excluding polar deserts. During winter, there are fewer crowds compared to the summer months.

You can learn and experience the nomadic way of life by staying with a nomadic family during your trip. Other highlights of the Gobi Desert include hiking in a glacial valley, climbing massive dunes, enjoying a gentle stroll on a two-humped camel, exploring a dinosaur excavation site, and visiting ancient monasteries. All these activities allow you to immerse yourself in the barren steppes of Mongolia.

This morning, we will drive to Yol Valley (Vulture Canyon). It is a beautiful deep canyon with many rocky cliffs created by many years of water erosion. 

After arrival at the canyon, we will take a 2-hour hike and see parts of a glacier left over from the winter months.

Khongor Sand dunes snow winter tour in Mongolian gobi

Day 4. Drive to Khongor Sand Dunes (B/L/D)

Khongor sand dune is one of Mongolia's largest and most spectacular dunes, standing as high as 200 meters above the ground, 7-8 km wide, and 180 km long. Climbing the dunes is breathtaking, not just for the top view.

It surprises climbers that the dunes make a singing sound while you climb; that is why it is nicknamed the singing dunes. The sand dunes make you feel extraordinary comfort and infinite peace. Once we get there, we will ride a camel along the Khongor sand dunes. The two-humped Bactrian camels are very comfortable to ride as they walk slowly and gently. You will be well supported by the humps, sitting comfortably between them. 

Bayanzag flaming cliffs and snow winter time.

Day 5. Drive to BayanZag Flaming Cliffs B/L/D)

Today, we are going to drive to visit the Bayanzag area. Known as a Flaming Cliffs "Cradle of Dinosaurs," the first nest of dinosaur eggs ever discovered was found in 1922.​The site was famous for the remains of a dinosaur that lived here 60 million years ago.

Day 6. Drive to Baga Gazriin Chuluu "Rocky Formation" (B/L/D)

The astonishing granitic formations of Baga Gazariin Chuluu, "stone of the little place," are located northwest of the Dundgovi province. Therefore, you can see on the rock the inscriptions written by two venerated monks who lived there in the 19th century.​On the site, we will visit the ruins of an old temple dating from the 17th century. We can see a deep, narrow hole.

The stagnating rainwater could treat ocular illnesses. There is a little ladle on the rock for the people to wash their eyes with the sacred water.
