TS-MN-03 East Gobi Eastbound

ULAANBAATAR ► EAST GOBI PROVINCE

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.

A time and cost effective way of experience the remote and starkly beautiful East Gobi desert.

This tour takes a local train to Sainshand, capital of Dorno Gobi Province and uses a jeep to spend several days exploring this rugged and remote part of the desert. Note that this area of the Gobi does not have the giant dunes of the South Gobi but does have dinosaur remains, remote monasteries, camels and extraordinarily resilient nomadic people.

Day 1 - Ulaanbaatar to Sainshand

Watch the Grasslands Change to Desert as You Enter the Gobi

Early morning transfer to the station to catch the train on to Sainshand to begin your East Gobi adventure. Much of the day is spent in the steppe which gradually gives way to the stoney Gobi desert – keep an eye out for camels! Evening arrival in Sainshand in East Gobi province where your guide will be meeting you at the station.

Travel directly out to the East Gobi ger camp to overnight.

Meals Included: None today.

Day 2 - East Gobi

Remote Monastery, Dunes, Saxaul Forest & a Camel Breeding Family

Today you have a 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 3 - 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 4 - Gobi To Beijing

Free Time in Camp Before the Train on to China & Beijing

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. After lunch we head back to Sainshand to visit the local museum before joining the train on to Beijing (not included in the price) or it is possible to return to Ulaanbaatar on an overnight train.

Meals Included: Breakfast & Lunch at the Ger Camp.
