Gobi Desert & Southern Mongolia

If you’re a fan of science fiction and the desolate locations where sci-fi stories often take place, you’ll feel right at home in the Gobi desert in Mongolia. This is a vast and gravelly plain; one of the only places on earth where it is truly possible to go “off the grid.”

Feel like you’re exploring new worlds among the colossal sand dunes, ice-filled canyons, and dinosaur remains set in sandstone cliffs. Ride camels through the desert or hike into Yolyn Am, a mountain gorge. Stay with camel herders in a guest ger or find unexpected luxuries that put ‘glamping’ to shame. Witness an ancient way of life, in a place where you feel like the only person on earth.
