Journey in the footsteps of Chinggis Khan, Marco Polo and the many explorers who have trekked Mongolia’s magical landscape and crossed its storied trade routes. This adventure tours the many marvels of the vast Gobi—hiking the Yol Valley National Park in the foothills of the Altai Mountains, observing prehistoric petroglyphs, riding Bactrian camels over endless waves of dune, experiencing the otherworldly glow of the Flaming Cliffs lit by sunset, visiting nomadic herding families to share in their hospitality and learn their culture, and exploring Karakorum, the 13th-century capital of the great Mongol Empire. At night, sleep beneath a sea of stars, with the Milky Way seeming suspended overhead, and peerless view ability of two galaxies beyond our own—the Clouds of Magellan.
Journey into the heart of the Gobi Desert and discover its otherworldly beauty from every angle. Based at our luxurious award-winning Three Camel Lodge ger camp, you explore the multicolored granite rocks of the Gyalaan Valley, camel trek the “Singing Sands” of the magnificent Hongoryn Els dunes, visit the iron-rich sandstone Flaming Cliffs famed for their fiery glow at sunset, and scour for fossils at Tugregiin Shiree, a white escarpment where the famous “Fighting Dinosaurs” fossils of a Protoceratops and Velociraptor locked in fatal combat were discovered.
