Tour Overview

Rolling steppe make way to stark desert; small nomadic ger camp pepper this vast land where camels and goats are herded on horseback, fermented mare’s milk is the tipple of choice, sand dunes are known to ‘sing’ and the first intact dinosaur eggs were found. Genghis Khan went forth from here on horseback to conquer the biggest land empire in history and, to this day, Buddhist and Animist traditions mix. In July, all over the country, people come together to compete in wrestling, archery, horse-racing and ankle bone flicking during the Naadam Festival but traditions can be witnessed throughout the year. We travel through steppe, mountain and the Gobi desert exploring the nature and culture of this fascinating, yet little known, country.

Highlights

  • The spectacularly varied Mongolian landscape - vast rolling steppe, mountains and deserts

  • Sleep in traditional style ger camps (Mongolian tents)

  • Karakorum, the ancient capital of the Mongol Empire

  • Wrestling, archery, horse-riding and bone-flicking at the Nadaam Festival

  • The rolling sand dunes and landscape of the Gobi desert

  • One of the last remaining nomadic cultures in the world

Start in Ulaan Baatar. Those not travelling with the group from London will
join us at the hotel. There are no activities planned for today to allow for
different arrival times and to rest after the flight. However, for anyone who
arrives into Ulaan Baatar early, why not explore some of the city’s sites
including UB’s main square: Sukhbaatar Square, the National Museum and the
landmark State Department Store.

Before leaving UB we visit the Gandan Monastery, the largest functioning
lamasery in Mongolia and the seat of Buddhist studies in the country. Here we
may see monks praying and the 20m gold and bronze statue of Migjid Janraisig.
We then drive on the main road westwards towards Karakorum, making a detour
to the Khustain Nuruu National Park, 2 hours west of Ulaan Baatar. Khustain
Nuruu is famous for the re-introduction of Mongolia's wild horse. The Takhi
Horse (also known as the Przewalski's horse) was once native to Mongolia and
almost became extinct earlier in the 20th century. Through the efforts of
several Mongolian and international organizations, these magnificent wild
horses now roam in the steppes of the national park once again. We will visit
the Project Information Centre and take a guided hike to see the wild horses.
Tonight will be our first night staying in gers, traditional Mongolian felt
tents.
*Ger Camp*

Today we continue on our drive to the 13th century capital of the Mongol
Empire - Karakorum - making a brief stop to see the dunes of the Little Gobi
along the way. . Karakorum was established by Ogedei Khan and remained the
Mongols power base until Khublai Khan established Beijing as the capital.
Erdene Zuu (Hundred Treasures) monastery was the largest Monastery in
Mongolia, built in 1586 under the direction of Abtai Khan on the ruins of the
ancient capital. Much of the monastery was destroyed during Stalin's purges
of the 1930's, but an impressive wall with 108 stupas and a number of temples
still remain. After lunch, we visit the monastery, the modern Karakorum
Museum and the surrounding area

Today is a long day as we head properly off the tourist route into some of
the wilder parts of the Gobi Desert. After an early breakfast we start our
journey and rapidly leave the tarmac behind. The landscape changes as we head
deeper into the Gobi and the majestic Ikh Bogd Mountain should be visible in
the distance, the highest mountain in the Gobi Altai Mountain Range.
Eventually, after about 9 hours travelling (with stops) we will arrive at our
Ger Camp in the wilderness. This is the longest day’s driving but is also a
definite highlight of the trip as we pass through some of Mongolia’s most
spectacular scenery.

plains mixed with small rocky outcrops and patches of sand across the Khatan
Suudal Steppe. We stop for a picnic lunch on the way, with views of Arts Bogd
mountain to the north. We head off to the Kongoriin Els sand dunes and arrive
there in the late afternoon.

We have a full day to explore the sand dunes and surrounding area. The
Khongoriin Els stretch for 200km and are as high as 300m in places. They are
known as the 'Singing Dunes' because of the beautiful sound that resonates
through the dunes on a windy day. The South Gobi has 100,000 camels,
typically used by herders for transportation of their gers. We will have the
opportunity today to visit a camel breeding family and get a glimpse of the
way of life of the nomadic herders of these parts.

Location:

  Gobi Gurvan Saikhan


Accommodation:

This morning we will drive through the Gobi Gurvansaikhan National Park. Gobi
Gurvansaikhan means 'Three Beauties of the Gobi' and this range marks the
eastern end of the Gobi Altai mountain range. The park's landscape is
extremely varied, with rocky and sandy desert plains, precipitous cliffs and
ravines, salt pans and oases. We visit a spectacular natural sight of this
region - Yolyn Am. Yolyn Am means Vulture's Mouth and is a canyon so deep and
narrow that even in the height of summer winter ice can remain on the valley
floor. This region is also renowned for the diversity of its wildlife and
many endangered species can be found here, including Khulan, Ibex, Argali and
elusive Snow leopards. We visit a local museum and explore the canyon before
transferring to a nearby ger camp for dinner and overnight.
*Ger Camp*

icon Day 9 : Hiking around the 'Flaming Cliffs' of Bayanzag.
Location:

  Flaming Cliffs


Accommodation:

  Camp


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Today we have time to relax in our luxury ger camp. Either in the morning or
afternoon we take a short drive to Bayanzag (70 km). Known as the Flaming
cliffs, the red/ochre colour can be striking and we have the opportunity for
a short hike amongst colourful sands of red, yellow and orange. Bayanzag is a
world-renowned dinosaur fossil exploration site, discovered in the 1920s by
Mongolian and American palaeontologists. We are free to explore the region
and may even be lucky enough to spot dinosaur fossils. We later return to our
ger camp.
*Ger Camp*

icon Day 11 - 12 : Naadam Festival
Location:

  Mongolia Naadam Festival


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  Bayangol Hotel or similar


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


The Naadam Festival celebrates the ‘three games of men’ (or Erin Gurvan
Naadam) which are wrestling, horse-racing and archery. More recently a fourth
game, knuckle-bone flicking was added to the competitions. The festival is
celebrated throughout the country but the biggest festival is in Ulaan
Baatar.
Over the next two days we attend the grand opening ceremony before we watch
Mongolians compete in all four sports. We also get to mingle with hordes of
Mongolian spectators as the grounds around the stadium (where wrestling,
archery and bone-flicking takes place) and the horse races are filled with
stands selling food, games, flags and various other things.
The atmosphere is a big part of the experience and many Mongolians dress in
their best traditional clothes for the occasion.
In 2010 the festival was entered into the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage
list and is great celebration of the Central Asian nation’s culture.

icon Day 13 : Terelj National Park; Genghis statue; Ulaan Baatar
Location:

  Gorkhi Terelj National Park, Ulaanbaatar


Accommodation:

  Camp


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


We leave Ulaan Baatar and head for Terelj National Park.
Terelj National Park is a large protected area of green mountain meadows
filled with edelweiss and other wild flowers. The contrast to the Gobi Desert
is striking and it feels like being in a different country.
We visit the Tibetan-style Aryabala temple, a meditation centre located on a
mountain side with sweeping views over the national park. As we follow the
walk up to the temple there are inspirational sayings on placards every few
steps. The climb to the temple is not difficult but does involve many steps
and can be tiring.
Tonight we have our final night sleeping in a ger.
*Ger Camp*

icon Day 14 : Return to Ulaan Baatar.
Location:

  Ulaanbaatar


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  Bayangol Hotel or similar


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


As we make our way back to the city we visit the giant Genghis Khan statue at
Tsonjin Bolog. Standing 40m tall, the statue depicts the Mongolian ruler
astride his horse and sits atop the visitor’s centre (itself 10m tall). It
is possible to climb up onto the horse’s head to get a closer look of
Genghis Khan’s face.
This afternoon there should be some free time for some last minute shopping
or site-seeing.

Food

Traditional Mongolian diets are very meat and dairy heavy. Whilst there will be opportunities to try some of these products such as dry-curd and fermented mare’s milk, the meals provided in the ger camps are generally western meals, at times with an Asian influence. There will normally be some form of soup and salad as well as a main course and desert. Vegetarians are generally well catered for, if you are vegetarian or have other dietary requirements please make sure to inform us in advance. Breakfasts can vary from place to place, some are buffet style whilst others are set, normally cereal, bread and possibly a hot dish will be provided. On some days a pack lunch will be provided, this is often still a proper meal (though without the soup). Water is provided and will generally be from 5L water-containers so make sure to bring a water bottle to decant into. Tea, coffee, soft drinks, beer, vodka and (most of the time) wine are available to buy at the ger camps. There is opportunity to buy snacks in Ulaan Baatar and on a couple other occasions along the way when we drive through towns or villages.

Accommodation

We use hotels in Ulaan Baatar and Arvaikheer and ger camps elsewhere. Gers are similar to yurts, generally airy and comfortable with beds and, normally, a stove (though in the summer the stoves are not normally needed). The bathrooms are normally shared and all have hot water (however due to the remoteness of the camps this can, at times be erratic). Many of the ger camps now have 24hr electricity in the ger itself for charging batteries. If there is no charging facility inside the ger itself then there are charging facilities in the common area (though this may during limited periods of the day only when the generator is turned on). There will normally be no more than two people per ger, however in some cases, due to availability issues we may need to have triples in the ger. There may also be rare occasions when a single cannot be guaranteed in a particular ger camp.

We loved Mongolia! This was our first holiday as part of a guided group trip, and it really worked for us.

We found the itinerary to be just right, long days with lots to see and do, interspersed with just enough downtime to recharge our batteries.

The accommodation in hotels and gers was of a high standard.

We were very well fed with meals ranging from traditional Mongolian to modern European and Asian cuisine at the accommodations and local restaurants in UB.

Box lunches were provided for the long days crossing the Gobi and for the Naadam Festival.

All the Mongolian people we met made us feel very welcome to their country.

Fantastic trip.

Huge statues, more goats, sheep, horses and cows than you can imagine.

A vastness that boggles the mind.

The Gobi desert is to be experienced just to get an idea of the size of it.

Living in ger camps is worthwhile too.

You get to sample what nomadic life can be like.

The local people were friendly and open to us visiting their ger homes, and we were offered goats cheese, fermented milk and simple vodka.

It's rude to decline the offer! It's hard to pick one particular highlight but I think the Nadaam Festival comes out top.

Fascinating and unique country. The Nadaam Festival was amazing, especially the opening ceremony. Lots of long road journeys.

The nothingness of the desert was full of life.

We just needed to be shown it.

Talking with three ladies in their own gir was such a good explanation of a lifestyle we couldn’t fathom before this.

The gir camp sites were well run and 12/14 days we had excellent meals tho I would take some bottle of my choice of sauce next time.

The driving distances were very long on 2 days.

In 11 hours you can’t have a bad back or any hint of travel sickness.

I am on my 19 th exodus trip and at 70 found these really hard work even tho it was unimaginably interesting.

My respect for the huge Mongolian empire grew and all I wanted to see was a dinosaur.
