About
The great Gobi desert covers one third of Mongolia’s territory. Hundreds of years ago the desert was part of the main trade route between East and West, with camel caravans crossing the vast steppes loaded with perfumes, spices, and other goods. Today the Gobi is a mixture of rare wildlife, intriguing landscapes, and nomads in constant search of grazing land for their herds. We will explore the secrets of the Gobi – an ice canyon, sand dunes, oases, dinosaur graveyards, and nomadic life. Transport will be by 4X4 vehicles and the distinctive two-humped Bactrian camel.

Everything just worked out on this tour i did in nov 2019. Actually mongolian ways was one of the few actually offering during this offseason time of the year. Both guide and driver have proofen excellent organizational, driving, translating skills and made everytjing possible. One night for example was really cold so they spontanipusly organized a warmer place for the next day. A lot was organized according to the situation which gave maximum flexibility. We visited places which are not usually on the tourists list as for example a coal mine. I was never pressured to hurry up or and still everything worked out because the dtiver was so well connected with the locals.
And of course... the sights I saw where amazing.

I travelled to Mongolia this summer and the trip totally exceeded my expectations 😊 Mongolian Ways was flawless from start to finish. Tsoggy organised my Mysteries of the Gobi Desert trip and he was happy to go out of his way to ensure everything was just right. My tour guide, Uyanga and my driver, Nyamka were outstanding. Uyanga was super organised and we had a great time climbing to the top of Khongoriin Els. Nyamka had a great sense of humour and always went that extra mile. I was in awe of the abundance of unique landscapes in the Gobi Desert. Throughout my trip, the attention to detail and making the little things count was top-class. An amazing holiday! I hope to go back, explore more of this exquisite country and I would definitely book with Mongolian Ways again.
