Today we will drive to Khogno Khan Mountains. It is an impressive massif mountain chain in the open steppes. In the afternoon we will hike in the area 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 Uvgun Monastery.
Not far from here runs the Elsen Tasarkhai, 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 & mountains with rich flora and fauna abundant bushes and plants. Among others are a plant called “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.

Day 3: Camel Riding along Dune and Mountains
We will continue the camel riding journey through rolling dunes of semi-arid desert on 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 for us, camels and small animal tracks. A perfect place for overstressed city brain.
