TS-MN-02 East Gobi Westbound

SAINSHAND ► EAST GOBI PROVINCE ► ULAANBAATAR

3 nights from UK £ 645 per person

Price based on 2 people travelling. This price is to give guidance and final quotes vary by date, exchange rates and are subject to availability. Trip runs from May to September only.

For those on a Trans-Siberian tour heading towards Moscow from Beijing this tour is a cost effective way to visit a remote part of the Gobi utilizing the Trans-Mongolian train line which runs through the East Gobi province.

The wonderfully remote and rugged landscape lakes the giant sand dues of the South Gobi but makes up for it with a more genuine experience of monasteries, scenery and the nomadic inhabitants who must be some of the most resilient on earth.

Day 1 - Arrival Sainshand East Gobi

Remote Monastery, Dunes & Saxaul Forest & Camels

A very early arrival at remote Sainshand station. Transfer directly out to the ger camp where you have time to relax before breakfast.

Jeep tour to some of the highlights of this region including the remote Khamariin Khiid monastery, an important centre of the Buddhist “red sect” and home to the “Terrible Noble Saint of the Gobi”. Drive on through the rocky desert to an area known as the “small sandy dunes”. Also visit the Gobi Saxaul forest, a unique eco-system that clings on to survival in this harsh environment. We will also meet a camel breeding family and learn how they live in a part of the world where few would think it is possible to exist.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner at the Ger Camp.

Day 2 - East Gobi

“Died World” Meditation Caves & Dinosaur Fossils in the Desert

A full day exploring east Gobi by jeep stopping where you wish and also visiting “Died World” – an area of small caves where that Lammas used for long periods of meditation. We also explore an area famed for it’s fossils and can search for dinosaur remains and petrified wood amongst the rocks (note that Mongolia imposes severe penalties for taking any such fossils out of the country!) Evening in the ger camp to enjoy the silence and star-lit skies of the desert.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner at the Ger Camp.

Day 3 - Gobi to Ulaanbaatar

Free Time in Camp Before the Train on to Ulaanbaatar

Free time in the ger camp where it is possible to arrange to ride a camel (fees payable locally), relax or take a walk out into the desert. In the afternoon we head back to Sainshand to visit the local museum as well as free time to explore this remote settlement that only exists because of the Trans-Mongolian railway. Own arrangements for dinner in town before joining a local train on to Ulaanbaatar with arrival early tomorrow morning.

Meals Included: Breakfast & Lunch at the Ger Camp.
