Do you want an unusual holiday away from the tourist crowds? Experience an incredible experience and see breathtaking landscapes?
Welcome to Mongolia where you can travel for days without meeting a man. Crossing huge distances on horseback or jeep and crossing antelopes, wolves, yaks, camels or horses in the wild. Among these spaces, you will meet isolated villages, yurt encampments.
Trip to the Gobi Desert
An emblematic destination of Mongolia, it is the largest desert in Asia and represents 20% of mongolia’s territory.
Khongor Els Dunes
Sand dunes that stretch for more than 180 kilometers long up to 300 meters high. Sublime spectacle when the dunes nicknamed “singing dunes” begin to emit a sound created by the friction of the sand between them.
This area inhabited by many camel breeders will be an opportunity for you to learn more about these animals and especially to take a long walk on their backs.
Known for saxaoul, a globally threatened plant that grows in the Gobi Desert. The place is also famous for its “red sand” cliffs today called “flaming cliffs” for their red and ochre colors.
The valley near the Ongi Monastery offers spectacular views of many migratory species: passerines, pulsating and thrushes. While enjoying the soothing and spiritual atmosphere of the place.
After a good day of hiking in the Gobi Desert, enjoy the magical moment by observing the starry sky like you’ve probably never seen before.
Very wild, this is the opportunity for you to go on treks, to ride horses in the valleys. You will meet nomads with whom to exchange. The landscape of steppes, valleys, mountains, lakes and rivers promise you sweet nights under the stars.
Khentii province is teeming with rivers of pristine and cold water. The primary activity that lends itself to this landscape is angling. An afternoon set, in an idyllic and soothing setting for fishing enthusiasts.
