Mongolia tour across Gobi desert, Tsagaan Suvarga, Yol and Baga Gazar rocks
This magnificent Mongolia tour will allow you to travel on asphalt roads to some of the most beautiful areas of the Gobi desert passing through Tsagaan Suvarga, Bayanzag, the dunes of Khongor, Yol valley and the rocks of Baga Gazar, returning to Ulan Bator. During the trip an excursion with camels is also included.
Today we'll head to Khongor, famous for its giant sand dunes. We'll explore the area riding the famous Mongolian Bactrian camel for about an hour and then we'll climb one of the sand dunes to the top, a challenging experience. From the top you will be able to admire the bizarre green valley in this side of the Gobi.
The camel ride is included in the trip.
Leaving the previous destination behind, we'll head towards Yol valley, famous for being the only place in the world where, despite the desert, you can find ice in the open air. We'll start the visit from the local museum where you can observe the local floral and fauna in the form of stuffed animals and some reproductions. Then we'll have some time to visit the markets near the museum.
The real excursion begins while walking in the valley for around 3 km until reaching the inside of the frozen canyon. We'll visit the area and the banks around the mountains: you'll realize how spectacular it is to find green valleys, mountains and ice in a desert. Finally, we'll return to the Ger.
