Tour Overview

The Gobi Desert tour continues for 8 days. Get in touch with your inner nomad as you hike, trek, camel ride, and “sand sled” through the Gobi Desert. On this journey, you will see desert steppe, tremendous sand dunes, deep gorges with rivers running through them, Mongolia’s own “Grand Canyon,” and the infamous “Flaming Cliffs” of Bayanzag

The word Gobi means “desert” in Mongolian. The Gobi is made up of several distinct ecological and geographic regions, based on variations in climate and topography. The Gobi is most notable in paleontology and history as part of the great Mongol Empire, and as the location of several important cities along the Silk Road.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1.Ulaanbaatar to Baga Gazriin Chuluu ( today 230km)

After an early 7:30am breakfast, the tour begins at 8am with the drive to first destination in the Middle Gobi province. Baga Gazriin Chuluu is a range of granite hills surrounded by the desert. It is believed Chinggis Khaan grazed his horses here. These hills are a good place for scrambling and hiking. On the way to Baga Gazriin Chuluu, we will have picnic lunch at Zorgol Khairkhan Mountain. The mountain is venerated and revered by the locals, who believe it is the home of a great, benevolent spirit. First will be camping, but depending on the weather we may stay in a nomadic family ger camp.

Day 2.Tsagaan Suvarga (240km)

Today’s drive will be on the paved road. After packing up the camp site, will be driving to Tsagaan Suvarga – a formation about 30 meters tall and 100 meters long and shaped very strangely, as a result of wind and water erosion over thousands of years. From a distance, it can be mistaken for the ruins of an ancient city. Lunch will be in the town of Mandalgovi (the capital of Dund-govi province)

Day 3.Yoliin Am Valley (180km)

Today we will be entering South Gobi Desert – Umnugovi province. After having breakfast, we will start the drive to Dalanzadgad city where you can have a shower, and guide will restock supplies with some fresh food. Lunch will be in a local restaurant, and we then continue to Yoliin Am (“vultures mouth”), which is a deep and narrow gorge in the Gobi Gurvansaikhan National Park in Southern Mongolia. Yoliin Am is notable for a deep ice field. This ice field reaches several meters thick by the end of winter, and is several kilometers long and can sometimes remain frozen throughout the summer. Camping and supper will in the Valley.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 4.Khongoryn Els (220km)

Driving on this day can be adventurous, because the road is unpaved. We will start driving at 8am after breakfast.. Enjoy a picnic lunch in the gorgeous canyon, and then continue on to the last destination of the day. Khongoryn Els.
These dunes are the largest accumulation of sand in the Gobi Gurvan Saikhan National Park. The spectacular dunes are bordered by lush green vegetation supported by the Khongoryn Gol river, which is fed by underground sources from surrounding mountains.
Stay in a ger camp run by the local community, including a shower.

Day 5. Khongoryn Els

Take the opportunity to relax and truly appreciate the surrounding landscape. You will spend the day camel riding for the day, hiking, sand sliding or hanging out with a local nomadic family. There will also be an opportunity to enjoy a shower and cold drinks from the bar/restaurant as well as a night safari tour, where we will see some of the local wildlife

Day 6. Bayanzag (150km)

Your destination on this day will be the aptly named “Flaming Cliffs”. The adventure across the vast desert landscape will continue, this time across what was a prehistoric sea bed. The flaming cliffs are a dream for fossil hunters. They were named by American adventurer Roy Chapman Andrews who found the first fossils here in 1920. The Bayanzag area is great for hiking and hunting for fossils. Stay in a family ger camp.

Day 7.Erdenedalai Town (350km)

Your exploits across the Gobi Desert will culminate with one final night camping under the star-studded Gobi sky, gazing at the milky way, or enjoying the hospitality of a nomadic family one last time.

Day 8. Ulaanbaatar (250km)

Return to Ulaanbaatar with nothing but fond memories and the Gobi sand in your wake you will return to UB, aiming to be back in town by 6pm, enjoying a last picnic lunch in the wild at Zorgol Khairkhan Mountain. The mountain is venerated and revered by the locals, who believe it is the home of a great benevolent spirit.
Enjoy rest of your journey!

Amazing tour!
Very well organized and professional! We had a great time in the Gobi desert as well as in the Kovsgol Lake! Beautiful landscapes, beautiful people, driver and guide very caring and funny. If you have the chance to do the tour with Bunny, one of the guide, she is the best and will make your trip memorable! We won’t forget about her!

“Personal touch” You can trust that Meg will give the best service. This is where I would recommend anyone visiting Ulaanbaatar to stay. Its a hard city to find decent accommodation, especially at a decent price. In addition to her amazing accommodation, she runs incredible trips. I had the most amazing trip with Meg. We went all around the Gobi, saw incredible sights. Meg has this incredible way of disarming people. She walked into Gers and made everyone feel comfortable and at home. The food was outstanding and Meg was accommodating of any requests we had. I can’t wait to do another trip with her.

Meg is a wonderful, very open person who not only organized a wonderful 8-day-trip to Gobi desert for us, but also engages herself for disabled persons in Mongolian’s countryside and hosted us for two nights in Ulaanbaatar. Thank you so much for all these great experiences, the comfortable stay at your place and kind regards to Tungaa & Ogi, Ben and your lovely little sweetheart! – And for sure, you are always more than welcome in Germany at Sybilles place or in Zurich/Switzerland with me! Kisses

Meg is a superstar! She organised us a fabulous tour round the Gobi Desert and we had a great time staying with her, her daughter and her brother (and even her parents!) before and after the tour. We had loads of great chats and she answered all of our Mongolian questions. We’d love to see her in Scotland sometime!
