Golden Gobi Short Tour Mongolia

6 days from $1230

Discover the golden Gobi Desert, which once was an ancient sea, occupies much of Southern Mongolia. Gobi Desert has become a primary destination to visit Mongolia because of the discovery of dinosaur fossils and beautiful combination of Sand dunes, oasis, and rocky mountains. The landscape is rugged and inhospitable, with little vegetation, but it varies enormously, from mountain massifs with barren rocky outcrops to the flat plains where you find a poplar-fringed oasis and Sand dunes. This region is a habitat of threatened species, such as wild camel, Gobi bear /known as Mazaalai/, one of the rarest kind of bear on the earth, and wild ass /known as Khulan/.

Highlights

  • Visit camel breeding family
  • Short camel riding
  • Hiking on sand dune
  • Visit local museum
