About Mongolian Deserts

In the south and west of Mongolia there are 32 different gobi deserts. The climate in this desert area is very continental, in summer it can be over 40 degrees hot and in winter it can be up to -40 degrees cold. The Gobi Desert is the second largest desert in the world after the Sahara, located in southern Mongolia and extending south to China. Its landscape includes sandy dunes, rugged mountain ranges and inhospitable salt lakes. Nonetheless, there are animals in and around the Gobi Desert. Goiter gazelle, marbled polecat, camel, smaller rodents, snakes and even occasionally brown bear, wolf and snow leopard are found in the area. They can roam unmolested by off-road holidaymakers in a number of protected areas in the Gobi Desert, such as the Gobi Gurvansaikhan National Park, and the Gobi A and Gobi B Protected Areas in Mongolia.

Despite the hostile conditions the Gobi Desert is attracting more and more adventurers. No wonder it's one of Mongolia's top-draw regions, promising colossal sand dunes, ice-filled canyons, dinosaur fossils, camel treks, and hospitable nomadic herders who will shower you with warmth, and more than a little milky tea. In the infinite solitude of the sand dunes, the rocky cliffs of the mountains or on the shores of the salt lakes one experiences as a civilization-damaged man complete peace and quiet. The colorful sunsets and infinite starry sky are nowhere as spectacular as in a desert Gobi.
Crossings of the Gobi Desert are more comfortable by car today than they used to be, but still no honey licking. It is strongly advised not to drive in the desert without locals. Guided tours are offered by us.
