Day-1

We'll fly to Dalanzadgad center of South Gobi province.  We'll drive to Bayan-Zag which means "rich in Saxaul Shrubs" is more commonly known as the "Flaming Cliffs" of Bayan-Zag, famous for its discovery of dinosaur fossils. Many dinosaur fossils and eggs were found in this area. It's classic desert of rock, sand, scrub, sun and awesome emptiness. We'll spend the night in a family ger.

Day-2

We’ll drive to the Khongoryn Els Sand Dunes.The Khongoryn Els sand dunes extend along the northern side of Sevrei and Zuulun mountain ranges. These dunes are 100 km long, 5-6 km wide and up to 200m high. There is a small oasis near Khongoryn gol stream, which flows along the northern edge of the dunes. The scenery here is simply spectacular. We'll spend the night in Ger camp.

Day-3

We'll climb and hike to the top of the tallest sand dunes.  Also, if you want, you may walk alongside the river for about 10 kms. You will ride the two humped bactrian camels through huge sand dunes.  We'll spend the night in a family ger.

Day-4

We'll do a full day driving to the Yolyn Am in the middle of the Gobi desert National Park which is a strictly protected area, covering 70sq.kms. We’ll visit Yolyn Am (Vulture's Gorge), a deep and narrow gorge. It is notable for a deep ice field which reaches several meters thick till July. The mountains are the highest in the Gobi Desert and the rocky scenery is quite interesting. It is enjoyable to watch the waterfalls streaming over the rim in winter. Only two people can pass in the narrowest part. Despite sunshine, the place is quite dark, if you see the sky, it is only as a narrow blue line. We’ll spend the night in Ger camp.

Day-5

We will drive to Dalanzadgad and fly back to Ulaanbaatar.
