Know More about this tour

Meet your private local guide and driver in the morning at your hotel lobby and then settle into a comfortable air-conditioned minivan for 1 hour ride to Yumenguan Pass. Enjoy changing scenery along the way from bustling city to desolate Gobi. Get a close look at the site of Yumenguan Pass that is named after many jade caravans passing through and listen to your guide's commentary on its glorious past. Picture the bustling scene of this important pass with caravan traders crossing through in the ancient times and compare to its modern desolate view.

Afterwards, make a stop to Great Wall of Han Dynasty, the best preserved part of Han Great Wall but also a big opposite to the famous Badaling Great Wall or Mutianyu Great Wall. With limited materials, this Great Wall was built of a mixture of sand, dirt, rose willow, reed and apocynum. Take a free walk to get closer and learn more stories of the Wall and take some photos of the remains of this 2,200-year-old structure.

Next, take another 1 hour ride to start your exploration in Yadan National Geological Park. A park shuttle ride will show you through the park, making stops to different naturally shaped rock formations such as "the lion with a gesture of welcoming guests," "the peacock's tail," "the pyramid," and "the Sphinx." Imagining all these rocks will gradually change their shapes after another hundreds or thousands of years is also intriguing.

After a whole days trip in the fascinating Gobi desert, enjoy the ride in your comfortable air-conditioned vehicle back to your hotel.
