Gobi Desert Safari In Mongolia – Luxury vacations and holidays
Gobi Desert Safari In Mongolia
Many people picture the Mongolian Gobi as a sandy flat area with sand dunes and vast barren areas of dried mud soil. However, after they have traveled within Mongolia, visitors completely redefine their understanding of the area. The Mongolian Gobi desert supports a rich variety of life and is an amazingly diverse geographical area. Some parts of the Mongolian Gobi are daunting rocky mountains covered with plants. The mountainous areas have plenty of streams, springs, and wild animals, while other parts offer spectacular views of marvelous blue mountains combined with the high and seemingly endless sand dunes.
Other areas feature lush green-shored streams, oases, and endless steppes stretching to the edge of the horizon. Thousands of sheep and goat herds, horses, cattle, and rare Bactrian camels are seen on the prairies or among mirages in the middle of nowhere. This is yet another unexpected, delightful offering of the Mongolian Gobi desert. During this Gobi desert tour, you will stay at ger camps allowing you to enjoy 360° views of the steppes. The Gobi at night is amazingly quiet and beautiful with countless bright stars. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets are a daily occurrence in the Gobi. Aside from the stunning natural beauty, the Mongolian countryside offers a great variety of activities such as hiking in the Eagle Valley/Yol Valley in the Gurban Saikhan National Park, climbing Khongor sand dunes, wandering through the Flaming Cliffs, riding two-humped camels, visiting nomads and ancient monasteries and more. Those are just a sample of the wonders waiting to be discovered. Breath-taking natural scenery, unforgettable activities, and experiences are waiting for you. Travel the Mongolian Gobi desert with us and discover its untouched secret places and top attractions.

Welcome to Ulaanbaatar and meet with your guide and driver. Take some rest and start the tour to Baga Gazariin Chuluu, a zone of granite stone mountains; the highest peak is 1700 m above sea level. It has been keeping some historical remains such as the ruin of a monastery, ancient tombs, etc. Challenge your imagination by seeing the unique features of the granite formations in Baga Gazariin Chuluu, discover the ruin of the old monastery, and be captured by the emptiness of the Gobi.
Tsagaan Suvarga means "White Stupa.” It is one of the most famous highlights in the Gobi. Tsagaan Suvarga is a strange natural formation of colorful, massive mud cliffs that look like stupas, mound-like structures containing relics. Hiking through the cliffs offers the chance to take amazing photographs.
The Gobi Gurban Saikhan means "Three beautiful mountains in the Gobi.” The Gobi Gurban Saikhan Mountain is a beautiful national park itself rich in wildlife and scenic places. Among them, Yoliin Am/Eagle Valley is the one accessible by car. After our vehicle brings us to a designated parking area, we will walk through the resplendent valley into the depths of a sheer rock canyon, which accepts no sunlight. Therefore, it has ice until the end of June. The hiking continues for 2.5 to 3 hours for travel into the valley and back to the vehicle. Golden eagles, elusive wild sheep, and ibexes are indigenous to the valley.
Our journey will continue to Khongor, the largest sand dunes. After reaching the sand dunes, we’ll go hiking along the green river shore, climb sand dunes, visit a nomad family, and have an hour of camel riding. If you can climb one of the tallest sand dunes, don't forget to spread the sand northwards against the wind to find the reason why locals call the sand dunes "Singing Sand.” The views are fantastic from the top of the sand dunes.
Our adventure will continue to the Flaming Cliffs, where American explorer Roy Chapman Andrews found the remains of dinosaurs including the first dinosaur eggs ever discovered in the world. We will enjoy exploring the cliffs in search of dinosaur fossils we may find and visit the Gobi tree grove named “Bayanzag.” Which means “rich in saxaul trees.” This tree only grows in the Central Asian Gobi.
Drive first through slate mountains and next on 80 km Ongi steppes leading to Ongi Monastery, one of the biggest seven monasteries in Mongolia. There were two separate monasteries consisting of more than 30 temples on the shores of the Ongi River surrounded by the Gobi mountains; however, the temples were destroyed during the socialist purge of the 1930s. Now the ruins of the monasteries cover a huge area. Visit a new active temple, a ger museum, explore the monastery ruins and climb a nearby mountain to have panoramic views of the surrounding areas.
This day’s tour takes place in the transition zone from the Gobi desert to the mountain steppes. Kharkhorin, formerly known as Kharakhorum, was once the capital of Chinggis Khaan's Great Mongol Empire in the 13th century. After the move of the Mongolian capital to Beijing, and the fall of the Empire, Karakorum was abandoned and then destroyed by Manchurian soldiers in 1388. Today, in the vast valley of the Orkhon River, the awe-inspiring ancient monastery Erdenezuu coexists with Kharkhorin town. See some valuable religious artifacts in the monastery museum, view its stunning architecture, and the Kharakhorum Museum display remnants of the ancient city.
Today is the last day to spend in the beautiful countryside of Mongolia. On our way to Ulaanbaatar, we will visit a horse herding nomad family and have some horse riding. We also join the nomads for lunch. Arrive in Ulaanbaatar and check in at a hotel.
