DETAILED ITINERARY

DAY 1 Ulaanbaatar - flight to South Gobi - Yolyn Am canyon - Khongor sand dunes
In the morning our guide and driver will meet you at your accommodation in Ulaanbaatar and transfer to the airport for your flight to Dalanzadgad, center of Umnugovi aimag. After arrival in Dalanzadgad, meet with your local guide and driver, drive to the Yolyn Am canyon or Eagle Valley, located in the east mountains of the Gobi Gurvan Saikhan Mountain National Park. Eagle Valley is about 60km northwest of Dalanzadgad. It is a beautiful place with clear air, cold streams and surrounded with distinctive rock formations. Ice and snow in the bottom of the gorge remains frozen until the end of the July. Juniper grows here. After lunch drive to the Khongor sand dunes (about 200km west of Dalanzadgad), Mongolian largest and spectacular sand dunes, known as the “Singing Dunes”. You can enjoy the beautiful scene of Golden Gobi desert on the way. After arrival to Khongor sand dunes transfer to the tourist Ger camp and check-in. Khongor sand dunes is a magnificent sandpile! Hiking the dunes is unique as there is no trail. Everyone blazes their own. You’ll meet with views of Gobi desert, surrounding sand dunes upon reaching the top. As we walked along the ridge, this breathtaking scenery, stretched  for miles in every direction, are unequaled any where else in South Gobi. You don’t need to have special physical training, but still you will get lots of bright impressions and emotions! Accomodation at the tourist Ger camp, having rest and dinner.

DAY 2 Khongor sand dunes
After breakfast we’ll visit a Mongolian local camel herdsman nomad family, to experience their lifestyle, culture, traditions, religion and hospitality, to taste Mongolian dishes. Also, you have the chance to ride a Bactrian camel (Camel riding included in the tour price). Gobi camels are two humped Bactrian camels so the sitting position is otherwise quite comfortable. Also, you have the opportunity back to the sand dunes and continue to explore them more in depth. Evening is at leisure! Overnight at the tourist Ger camp, having rest and dinner.

DAY 3 Bayanzag, Flaming cliffs
After breakfast provided at a tourist Ger camp, drive to the Bayanzag, known as homeland of Dinosaurs fossils. This place is rich with saxsaul trees and that is why this name "Bayanzag or Rich in Saxaul" was given to it. In 1921, the US paleontologist expedition led by Roy Chapman Andrews, an American explorer, adventurer and naturalist, found from here Protoceratops and Tarbosaurus skeletons, dinosaurs that were living in the area hundreds of million years ago, for the first time in Asia. At that time, the Mongolian Government had exchanged this Tarbosaurus skeleton for two Ford vehicles and nowadays this skeleton is displayed at the National History Museum in NYC. At sunset, red cliffs in the area look like as if they are burning in flame, so Roy Chapman Andrews named this place “Flaming Cliffs” in 1921. Flaming cliffs are beautiful to see at sunset. Amazing contact with nature and excellent photographic opportunity. Accomodation at the tourist Ger camp, having rest and dinner.
