Detailed Description

Khogno Khan Mountain & Elsen Tasarkhai Sand Dune

Today our driving day will take us to Khogno Khan National Park. Khogno Khan Mountain is an impressive massif in the open steppes. At the end of afternoon we will hike in the region of Khogno Khan Mountains, walk up the mountain and enjoy the incredible view over the plains, the sand dune and grasslands. We will also visit the nice little Ovgon Monastery.

Not far from here runs the Elsen Tasarkhai Sand Dune affectionately known as Little Gobi, a 100 km long sand dune where our camel trek will begin. The area is a sharp contrast of natural beauties with semi-arid desert on grassland & mountain area with rich flora and fauna abundant bushes and plants. Among others are “arts” renowned for its scent. Locals and monks collect them and use for blessing during religious ceremonies. Evening we will reach our camel breeding family and enjoy warm tea and meal.

Camel trip in Desert

We will continue the camel riding journey through rolling dunes of semi-arid desert in a middle of grassland. Due to its close location from Ulaanbaatar, Elsen Tasarkhai receives mass tourism however as soon as we set out further from start point there will be no sign of life except us, camels and small animal tracks. A perfect place for overstressed city brain.

On our last day of the camel riding we will be heading back to the camel breeding family. We will get there in the afternoon and bid farewell to the family members and leave to our Ger camp for shower.
