Exploring Unknown Trans-Altai Gobi Desert



Before China became the world power that it is today, there was Mongolia, the former empire of Genghis Khan. As an important center on the old Silk Route, Mongolia became a crossroads of diverse people, and today, this enchanted land of steppes, taiga and desert is as culturally thriving as ever. While its capital city of Ulaanbaatar has embraced capitalism and is pulsing with modernity, much of the rest of the country remains a throwback to another age and the country is working to preserve its most precious landscapes and wildlife.  There’s no better way to see Mongolia than by experiencing the nomadic life, and our itinerary allows you to ride a camel through the Gobi Desert, overnight in traditional Gers (yurts), trek through the unknown Trans - Altai Gobi region and explore it with it's endangered species, see old vestiges of the Silk Road, and visit Buddhist monasteries.
