Day 1: Take a flight from Ulaanbaatar to Gobi Desert for Bayanzag, Flaming Cliffs
Welcome to our 4-day Gobi tour Mongolia! You will be sent to Ulaanbaatar airport early in the morning, to take a flight to the Gobi desert in the south of Mongolia. It will take you about 1.5 hours. On arrival, our local guide will pick you up at the airport and take you to Bayanzag, also known as Flaming Cliffs in Mongolian, famous as the site of dinosaur fossils' discovery.

When we arrive at Mongolian yurts, we will watch the interesting video recording how the first dinosaur egg was found by Roy Chapman Andrews and the American exploring team. This news astounded the whole world at that time. Then we will take a short drive to the Flaming Cliffs nearby. You can see the red cliffs in the vast desert, which are the red color like fire, especially at a sunset. After visiting, we are going back to the camp and stay overnight in the Mongolian yurts.

Day 2: Explore Khongor Sand Dunes, the Singing Dunes
Today our guide will drive you to Khongor Sand Dunes, which is also called the Singing Dunes for the loud sound of the wind blowing the sands. It is the largest sand dunes in Gobi desert in Mongolia. These dunes look short in the distance, but actually quite high when getting close to.

Upon arrival, having lunch is the first thing. Because the temperature in the desert is extremely high in the daytime, we will get some rest in the Mongolian yurts after lunch. When the high heat drops, we will start our Mongolia Gobi tour today.

We will visit a local herdsman's family who breeds camels, to experience the nomad life and ride on a two-humped camel. Then you can climb up the Singing Dunes with our guide to overlook the magnificent dunes. There is also a small piece of an oasis, which was formed by Khongoryn River flowing along the terrain of sand dunes.
