- Visit with a nomadic camel-herding family in the Gobi and take a lesson in archery, Mongolia’s national sport.
- Tour the Central Museum of Mongolian Dinosaurs with an expert guide, and search for fossils while exploring the spectacular Flaming Cliffs.
- Discuss the history of Buddhism in Mongolia with the head monk of Erdeni Dzu Monastery, one of the oldest Buddhist complexes in the region.
- Hear from rangers at Hustai National Park and track wild horses across the grassy steppe.
Mongolia’s sublime beauty reveals itself in endless expanses of steppe and sky and an age-old nomadic culture that joins the people with the land. Journey through this remote, seldom-travelled region of Asia, from sprawling Ulaanbaatar to green, grassy plains where wild horses roam. Discover the country’s surviving Buddhist heritage on visits to historic temples and monasteries; walk across the rocks and sands of the sweeping Gobi, which conceal troves of dinosaur fossils; and get a taste of traditional Mongolian life at a horse and yak farm.
