Mongolia Cultural Discovery
Once a pivotal point on the ancient Silk Road, this “Land of Blue Skies” retains elements of nomadic life and culture. Horses remain at the heart of Mongol culture, shamanic traditions endure, and ancient Buddhist monasteries reflect venerable spiritual traditions. On this fabulous adventure, travel this immense, silent land from the arid semi-desert Khogna Khan Natural Reserve and the Neolithic Ongot monuments near Hustai National Park through seemingly endless rolling steppe to the ochre-colored sands of the Gobi Desert in the south—including the “singing dunes” of Khongoryn Els.
  • Experience Mongol culture as you meet nomads, witness a Naadam festival, and overnight in traditional gers
  • Ride a camel through Gobi's dunes, and walk daily through desert, taiga, and steppe environments
  • Explore Khogno Khan Natural Reserve and UNESCO-listed Orkhon Valley, and see incredible Ongot monuments
