Dream Gobi Tour

The Mongolian Gobi Desert is one of the mysterious and unique places in the world. The Gobi is mostly imagined as a lifeless desert and endless sand dunes, similar to the African desert. In reality, Mongolian Gobi is a land of vast steppes, golden sand dunes and green oasis. The Mongolian Gobi Desert is a home to hospitable camel breeders, unique flora with a diversity of animals like domesticated and wild two-humped Bactrian camel, wild Argali sheep, Ibex, the Khulan wild ass, white and black tailed gazelle, snow leopard and others.

There are many things to do: climb the highest sand dunes, admire the Gobi sun setting, visit a camel breeder’s family, enjoy camel riding, trek in green oasis, explore Dinosaur Lands’ Flaming Cliffs where the first dinosaur egg nests were found, hike in Bearded Eagle’s Canyon, that is the coolest place of the Gobi even in hot summer with its frozen stream and much more. You are welcome to join us and explore the beautiful Gobi Desert wonders.
