Mongolia: an authentic and unforgettable journey

Looking for an unusual vacation away from the tourist crowds ? Enjoy an unforgettable experience and breathtaking scenery?
Welcome to Mongolia, where you can travel for days without seeing a man. Crossing vast distances on horseback or by jeep, encountering antelopes, wolves, yaks, camels and horses in the wild. Here you’ll find isolated villages and yurt camps.


Excursion to the Gobi Desert

Mongolia’s most emblematic destination, it is the largest desert in Asia and accounts for 20% of Mongolian territory.

Khongor Els dunes

Sand dunes stretching over 180 kilometers in length and up to 300 meters high. A sublime sight when the dunes, nicknamed “singing dunes”, start to emit a sound created by the friction of the sand between them.

This region is home to a large number of camel breeders, giving you the opportunity to learn more about these animals and, above all, to take a long ride on their backs.

Bayanzag cliffs

Known for the saxaoul, a globally endangered plant that grows in the Gobi desert. The area is also famous for its “red sand” cliffs, now called “flamboyant cliffs” for their red and ochre colors.

Ongi Monastery

The valley near Ongi Monastery offers spectacular views of many migratory species: passerines, warblers and thrushes. All the while enjoying the soothing, spiritual ambience of the place.

After a good day’s hiking in the Gobi Desert, take in the magic of the starry sky like you’ve never seen it before.

Khentii Province

Very wild, it’s a great opportunity for trekking and horse-riding in the valleys. You’ll meet nomads with whom you can talk. The landscape of steppes, valleys, mountains, lakes and rivers promises sweet nights under the stars.

Khentii province abounds in pristine, cold-water rivers. The primary activity that lends itself to this landscape is angling. A relaxing afternoon in an idyllic setting for fishing enthusiasts.

Experiences not to be missed

  • Sleeping in a yurt The yurt remains the Mongolian people’s main habitat. If you’re curious, you can see how they assemble and dismantle yurts in just a few hours. And above all, discover the layout of this living space.
  • Travelling the country on horseback or camelback As mentioned above, the spaces are immense, and exploring them on the back of an animal represents an immense opportunity.
  • Ride the Trans-Mongolian Railway Another fabulous way to discover the country. This train travels slowly through the country, little used by tourists, and is a great opportunity to meet and chat with Mongolians.
