Discover Mongolia by its dynamic capital Ulaanbaatar, Gobi desert, World Heritage Orkhon Valley, Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake and Khustai National Park.

A Gobi travel always leaves unforgettable impressions: mirage, fascinating mountain ranges, foothills with deep gorges, oasis with lush green meadows, magnificent sand dune fields at sunset, camels and cattle herders.

The Gobi Desert is also famous for important fossil findings, including prehistoric remains and petrified objects like the first dinosaur eggs discovered. Mongolian sand dunes are covering an area almost as large as the territory of Belgium. We are going to visit sand dune Khongor Els, the longest sand dune of the Gobi desert: Khongor Els has an extraordinary length of 180 km and is up to 20 km wide.

Ar- and Uvurkhangai provinces are located in the center region of Mongolia. It includes World Heritage Center Orkhon Valley and numerous archaeological remains of the nomads. And the site of the ancient capital city of Chinggis Khan – Kharkhorin – the center of what was the largest Land Empire the World has ever known.
