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.
