Amazing scenery, superb birding!

Breathtaking scenery, easy walking or take a horse ride. Never been as close to a wallcreeper or lammergeier!

Once you have managed to get Dalanzadgad, the capital of South Gobi province, you will see this stunning mountain to the southwest. It's not far from there. You will see lots of bird specialties including Mongolian Accentor, Altai Snowcock, Brown Accentor, Alpine Accentor, Godlewski's Bunting, White-winged Snowfinch, Lammergeier, Mongolian Finch and many, many more... Mongolica Safari would recommend it to... More

We werent even here in the cold months and there was still a few blocks of snow! Its a gorgeous hike, with wild flowers and beautiful birds and animals. We had a fun time jumping over the small stream, getting wet, rock climbing, well worth the drive and hike

If you are visiting this place then you would be doing a desert tour from UB. This park is beautiful. Take your time and really enjoy the surroundings. You can use a horse or walk. I walked and the distance is not very far. I think anyone who is on a desert tour would be able to easily walk this... More

We had a lovely walk down this valley. We didn't see much wildlife but it was nice weather and the walk itself was very enjoyable.

Ok so this is a very nice valley and the canyon is interesting but it is a long drive to get there and your chance of seeing one of the birds is virtually zero. There are people offering horse rides to the mouth of the canyon but it only takes 20 minutes to walk there. As we were leaving someone... More

A good easy hike that'll take abt an hour. Marvel at the best of Mother Nature. Keep your eyes peeled for an Ibex. When we went, the ice had already melted but that just meant pretty gurgling streams and a mini waterfall.

Hiking down along the stream to the Gorge is exhilarating. The air is fresh with abundant mint flowers adding to its fragrance. In the past there has been a glacier in the narrowest part of the gorge. We saw a wild goat up on the mountain on the way in.

The Yol valley is far from UB and necessitates a flight; it is quite spectacular and you can see on the way camels, yaks and if you are lucky, wild goats; to be avoided if it rains !

Another fascinating and out of the way delight in the Mongolian countryside. Our tour brought us to the Vulture Canyon and we had no idea what to expect. Imagine our surprise to walk down the very picturesque valley and find a frozen relic of the past winter still present in the deep river cutting. The ice was a bit tricky... More
