SUGGESTED ITINERARIES
Day 1: Arrival- Ulanbaataar
Upon arrival in Mongolia’s capital city, Ulaanbaatar, you will be transferred to your hotel and have some leisure time to relax. In the afternoon, enjoy a light program of sightseeing around the capital city. Pay a visit to the Sukhbaatar Square which is the central square in the heart of Ulaanbaatar. A large statue of Sukhbaatar, the famous patriot characterizes the square and is surrounded by important buildings like the Parliament House, Stock Exchange and Cultural Palace. Also visit the Gandan Monastery (established in 1835) which is the largest and most significant monastery in Mongolia and one of Ulaanbaatar's most interesting sights and is the only monastery where Buddhist services continued to function even during the communist regime. Take a slight ascent to Zaisan Hill from where you can enjoy panoramic views of the capital city and the surrounding areas. You also have an (optional) visit to the almost century-old Natural History Museum which offers displays of stuffed and embalmed animals including the rare Gobi Bear and also boasts of eggs and bones of dinosaurs which inhabited the Gobi Desert 60-70 million years ago. Enjoy traditional art performance and a welcome dinner at the restaurant. Overnight at the hotel in Ulanbaataar

Day 2: Ulanbaataar-Khongor
In the morning, depart from the hotel and head to Ulanbaataar Airport to catch a flight (approximately one and a half hour long journey) to the Gobi Desert landing at the Dalanzadgad Airstrip. Then drive to Khongor Sand Dunes, Mongolia’s largest sand dunes also known as the “Singing Dunes”. They extend along the northern side of Sevrei and Zoolun mountain ranges. Explore the area. The dunes extend for 185 kilometers and include dunes that can reach 80 meters in height. Here you will also have an opportunity to ride two humped Bactrian camels in the desert which is an enthralling experience. Stay overnight in a ger (also known as ‘yurt’) which is similar to a tent but a little more home-like and significantly larger. Gers have long been the tradition of Mongolian nomads in the Steppes region and accommodated many Gobi desert tourists over the years.

Day 3: Khongor-Bayan Zag
After breakfast, travel to Bayan Zag, more commonly known as the legendary “Flaming Cliffs”. It was here, on July 13, 1923 that Roy Chapman Andrews and his expedition team discovered the first nest of dinosaur eggs. The area of red cliffs “Bayanzag” formed from the erosion of the sand and rock over many thousands of years.  As scientists defined, it was an inland sea bottom some 200 million years ago. While in Bayan Zag, pay a visit to the local dinosaur ger museum. The Flaming Cliffs themselves are very imposing from a distance and are particularly fiery in the light of the setting sun. It is an excellent place to wander about to get a closer look at one of the world’s most famous paleontological sites. Stay overnight in the ger camp. 

Day 4: Yolyn Am
Next morning, travel to Yolyn Am, or ‘Eagle Valley' located in the foothills of the Altai Mountains. The valley’s remnant streams create ice formations which you may find in the mouth of the valley as late as July. The mountains surrounding the valley also provide habitat for Argali wild sheep (one of the last wild great horned sheep) and ibex, which may be spotted in the early morning as they walk along the mountain ridges. Visit Gobi museum and enjoy trekking through the valley. The valley begins from Zuun Saikhan Mountain and stretches over 10 km. It is completely shaded from the sun in some parts by high cliff walls. It is famous for the fact that there is ice present there even during the hot summer months. The beauty of the valley, combined with the sound of vultures (Yol means vulture in Mongolian) creates an atmosphere of awe and this is an experience not to be missed. Stay overnight in the ger camp.

Day 5: Ulanbaataar
Take the flight back to Ulaanbaatar. After lunch, visit the Bogd Khan Palace Museum. Built between 1893 and 1903, the Winter Palace of Bogdo Khan was the home of Mongolia’s last king Javzan Damba Hutagt VIII. This complex of temples and houses contain a number of Buddhist artworks and the private collection of Javnzan Damba Hutagt is composed of gifts of rulers and kings from all over the world. Also visit the National History museum which offers the richest collection on the history of Mongolia, from Stone Age to modern times. It allows retrospect the unique culture of the horse riding steppe nomads and their lifestyle. The exhibition contains many artifacts and arts, military equipment and arms of Genghis Khan Warriors.  Later, shopping for souvenirs and cashmere is optional.
