GOBI DESERT AND ALTAI MOUNTAINS TOUR /18 DAYS/

SHORT DESCRIPTION


We head into the Gobi area. The sites of the Gobi are varied and unique, like the valley at Yoliin Am, known as Eagle Valley, whose depths support huge glacial sheets that remain until the hot summer months, or the massive sand dunes. Of great interest to foreign travelers and scientists alike are the dinosaur remains scattered throughout the Gobi. Mongolia, the ancient realm of Genghis Khan, has emerged from the shadow of Communism and is now open to the world. Meet one of the last nomadic cultures on earth, where a traditional way of life endures as it did a millennium ago. Just three million people inhabit a country the size of Western Europe, half of them still living in portable felt tents called Ger and moving seasonally with their animals. The tour takes 8-9 days to cover the most popular travel destinations including Altai mountains, nomadic lifestyle, horse riding and hiking on the sacred mountains of Mongolia.
