You will have the opportunity to have a lot of contact with nomads during this Mongolia tour. Whenever the situation allows, we will stop at the nomads on the way. If only because the driver, on the way from the north to the south, has to inform himself again and again about the condition of the route. This is every time a nice opportunity to experience the hospitality of the nomads. Special highlights are the visits to the monasteries of Amarbayasgalant and Erdene Zuu (Karakorum) and the area around the Vulture Gorge.
This tour combines many classic attractions of Mongolia. It leads from Ulaanbaatar first to the north and then to the Gobi. This tour is the ideal introduction for anyone who does not know Mongolia yet and wants to experience as many interesting areas of the country as possible. This trip is also somewhat “decelerated”, which means that in addition to the driving days, there are also a number of rest days in one place to explore the landscape there. Special highlights are the visits to the monasteries of Amarbayasgalant and Erdene Zuu (Karakorum) and the area around the Vulture Gorge. Amarbayasgant is located not far from the newly built asphalt road between Darchan and Erdenet in a very beautifully situated valley. The landscape and the tranquility emanating from the monastery, completely captivate every observer. Karakorum is the cradle of Mongolia and the ancient capital of the medieval Mongol Empire. South of Karakorum, the landscape gradually turns into the Gobi. Within the Gobi, the Vulture Gorge, with its unique desert landscapes and canyons, and Bajandsag, with its mighty rock formations, are a special natural experience. Until late in the summer, the narrow and narrow Vulture Gorge is filled with ice from the previous winter. If you are lucky, you can find fossilized dinosaur bones in Bajandsag. This part of the tour follows the footsteps of the legendary explorer and discoverer Sven Hedin. You will have the opportunity to come into contact with nomads a lot during this trip. Whenever the situation allows, we will stop at the nomads on the way. If only because the driver always has to check on the condition of the route. This is every time a nice opportunity to experience the hospitality of the nomads. Already when entering the yurt, where we are always given, we receive the customary “milk tea”. Later on we also get pastries and yogurt products. During the trip around Mongolia you will always have time for the “little things” along the way. Many things can not be planned in advance, which arise spontaneously on the way. The focus is on experiencing Mongolia. This also includes getting involved in the different sense of time. Time and the use of time in Mongolia have a different meaning than in Europe. Let us take you into this other life for the time of your stay.
