We'll visit a Mongolian local camel herdsman nomad family, to experience their lifestyle, culture, traditions, religion and hospitality, to taste Mongolian dishes. 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.

DAY 5 Bayanzag, Flaming cliffs
Today will take you to one of the interesting parts of Gobi Desert: 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.
