Overview

Route: Ulaan Baatar – Dalanzadgad – Bayanzag – Khongorin Els sand dunes  – Dalanzadgad – Ulaan Baatar

One of the world’s most magestic deserts, the Gobi Desert covers the majority of southern Mongolia. Unlike the sand dune-spotted Sahara, the Gobi is made of gravel plains and rocky outcroppings. As with all deserts, the weather is extreme; temperatures reach as high as 40°C (105°F) in the summer and dive as low as -40°C (-40°F) in the winter. In the spring and fall, 140 kmph (40 mph) winds whip anything and everything across the barren land, making travel dangerous. Although the Gobi appears inhabitable, many endangered species consider it their home, including wild bactrian (two-humped) camels, wild donkies, and a small population of the rare Maazalai, the world’s only desert-inhabiting bear.
