Mongolia family tour
In the morning, you will be transferred to the city airport for morning flight to Gobi Desert (~1.5 hours). Upon arrival, your tour guide and driver meet you and depart to Yol Valley . Enjoy small hiking and photographing the charming landscape and wildlife. You can discover enormous cliffs and narrows and a glacier that doesn’t melt until the end of the June.
Khongor sand dunes are one of the largest sand dunes in Mongolia. And it covers a 180km long area. The largest dunes are North West of the range up to 800 meters high. You can climb to the top of the sand dunes and slide down. But it seems a challenge for many people. Once you are on the top of the dunes, slide the sand northwards against the wind. Also you will hear a sound like an aircraft. This is the sand singing. And you can hear the sand singing when the sand is dry. The view of the desert is awesome from the top of the sand dunes. Experience the endangered two-humped Bactrian camels and big open blue skies in the Gobi Desert.
Flaming cliffs are located about 100 km at the northwest of Dalanzadgad. Bayanzag is one of the most famous paleontological sites in the world. American explorer Roy Andrew Chapman first found dinosaur bones and eggs in the area in 1922. During the 2 years he searched through the Mongolian Gobi Desert and he found Dinosaur fossils from Bayanzag, Nemekht Mountain. Also he brought his paleontological findings on 70 camels. And Chapman presented Mongolia one large skeleton on show in the Ulaanbaatar Natural History Museum. The barren cliffs look strikingly flame-like, especially at sunset.
Ongi Monastery is located at the foot of Mount Saikhan Ovoo, near the village of Saikhan Ovoo in the province of Dundgovi. This monastery was one of the largest and most respected monasteries of Mongolia. It was completely destroyed in 1939 by the communist authorities. Although there is little left, it is interesting to go there to explore the ruins.
Kharakorum was the capital of the Mongol Empire from 1235 to 1263. The site of Karakorum may have been first settled about 750. In 1220 Genghis Khan established his headquarters there and used it as a base for his invasion of China. Erdene Zuu – The first Buddhist monastery called Erdene-Zuu was built on ruins of Karakorum . And it was built in 1586 at the initiative of Avtai khan, most influential Prince of that time in Mongolia.
