What You'll Love

The Scenery – Scenic gorges, singing sands and sunset cliff views

Named after the majestic Lammergeier vulture, the Yolyn Am gorge lies deep between some of Mongolia’s greenest and most rugged landscapes. Keep your eyes to the sky and watch for soaring eagles and scan the desert dunes for animals such as Ibex, Alashan ground squirrels or the tiny round-eared pika.

The ‘Singing Dunes’ of the Khongoryn Els dune ranges turn this towering desert ridge into one of the world’s most magical desert landscapes. Listen to their enchanting song as you hike up the sands, taking in views of the Gobi Desert below.

Bayanzag or the “Flaming Cliffs” is world famous for it’s ochre-red tinge and the countless dinosaur fossils discovered here. Take a sunset stroll along the ridge before sitting down to a picnic dinner accompanied by a traditional Mongolian music performance.

The Luxury – Experience the finer side of desert life with luxurious camping and five-star hotel stays

Hide away from the desert heat in style as you rest in a series of private tents across the Gobi Steppes. With great shower facilities, comfortable bedding and fresh food on offer during your stays, they’re the perfect place to unwind after days exploring Mongolia’s scenic sands.
