Due to its size and sparse habitation, it instantly brings tranquility and evokes mysteries to its visitors. During this trip, the most highlighting components of this legendary desert will be revealed to you Eagle Valley, Khongor sand dunes, and Bayanzag, which was home to dinosaurs many years ago.

    I researched several companies and found this to be the best tour and pricing available. A lot of tours didn’t offer the flight to Dalanzadgad. This would have added 8+ hours driving each way. I would highly recommend flying it instead of driving. The landscape of the driving you do to each ger camp site totals more than 10 hours and is definitely enough to take in the sites. Our guide Sara and our driver were very friendly, informative and accommodating. All of the communications with the company in booking this were very detailed and done promptly. We really enjoyed each location and the order that we did them. The ger tents were each different and had their own charm. One thing I would recommend is a flashlight or headlamps to go to the bathrooms at night. We also used it in the ger as sometimes the lights inside didn’t work. Also, at 2 of the gers we didn’t have electricity inside it, however, we were able to charge our devices inside the restaurants it could also be good to bring a car charger for phones to charge while driving. We really enjoyed the camel ride and the sunset hike at the Khongor sand dune. Leave enough time to get to the top. It’s definitely more challenging than it seems, but worth the sites from above if you can make it. I highly recommend this tour to anyone for a well-rounded tour with lovely staff, accommodations, and landscapes!!

    A fantastic trip, with well spaced out activities and excellent accommodation. The camp sites are clean and the food is good. Do note that the activities are physically demanding and will require proper shoes and sunscreen. Travelling on the roads are also not to be taken lightly, especially if you have back problems.

    This is an amazing trip with lots of off-road or no-road driving. There is plenty of scenery, and the activities were fabulous.
