Trip to Legendary Gobi Desert and Altai Mountains
April 1 - September 30
While once a pivotal point of the ancient Silk Road, this “Land of Blue Skies” has managed to retain the basic elements of nomadic life and culture. Horses remain at the heart of Mongolian culture, shamanic traditions endure, and ancient Buddhist monasteries reflect venerable spiritual traditions. On this adventure, you’ll travel this immense, ochre colored sand of the Gobi Desert in the south - including White Stupa, concentration of Petroglyphs, the singing dunes of Khongoriin Els, Great Mountains and Beautiful lakes on the road to the West. All along the way you’ll marvel at sheer expanse of untamed land, uninterrupted by roads or fences, where there precious little evidence of human presence save for the nomads’ white felt gers, which dot the landscape.
