Nomads and Mongolia experience
This trip to Mongolia is not to be missed. Mongolia is the least populated country on earth (except for the Poles). Hospitality and literally "an open door", are integral parts of the nomadic culture. Families live scattered in small groups in this endless sea of grass. On this trip you will meet some of these families and their simple life.
With this round trip through Mongolia we offer you not only the opportunity to experience the culture of Mongolia, but you will also get to know the nomadic life in the Mongolian steppe.

Karakorum is the cradle of Mongolia and the ancient capital of the medieval Mongol Empire. At the court of Dshingges Khan, lived emissaries, scientists, artists, even a representative of the Pope was at the Khan’s court.
South of Karakorum, the landscape gradually turns into the Gobi. The Gobi exerts a peculiar fascination on the visitor. Barren rocky landscapes, alternate with sheer endless gravel plains. The Gobi is the home of camel breeders. The camel is still the most important means of transportation in some regions.
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.
