After a light lunch, the journey will continue, either on horse back or yak cart, into the Baga Khentii Mountains, the smaller sisters of the Khentii Mountains to the north. You will spend 4 nights in tents at a base camp in the mountains. You will be accompanied by local horsemen, your guide, and cooking staff. There will be a ger for dining and social time in the evening. During the day there will be horse riding, or yak cart riding in the mountains and valleys, hiking and visiting the ruins of the Gunjin Monastery. A small river flows past the camp, which is deep enough for a dip in the cool waters or to do some fishing with the locals. The wildlife is varied and includes musk deer and moose, brown bear, roe and elk. It is also a paradise for bird lovers who may be lucky enough to spot whooper swans, spoonbills, great white egrets and numerous raptors. On your last day in the mountains you will visit your local horseman’s ger and sample some traditional Mongolian food. From here you will return to Ulaanbaatar in the vehicles for dinner at a local restaurant followed by overnight at the hotel.

On arrival at the airstrip in the Gobi you will be met by a driver and jeep and taken to the ger camp. After lunch we will visit Yolyn Am, or Eagle Valley. This is about 40km from your ger camp and is about one hour’s drive. The valley is about 10km long and is completely shaded from the sun in some parts by the high cliff walls. It is possible to walk through the valley and out the other side. You may be lucky enough to spot wild sheep and goats grazing high on the cliff walls. The valley is also full of soaring eagles hunting for prey. At the opening of the valley is a local Natural History Museum displaying interesting information about the animals of the area. Return to you ger camp for dinner and overnight.

Day 10
Today we drive west along the Altai Mountain range until we reach Khongoriin Els. Reaching heights of 800m, these are Mongolia’s largest sand dunes. Locally they are called the ‘singing dunes’ because of the tons of sand which shift in the wind, making a strange sound similar to that of distant aircraft. The drive is about 4 hours long. We will stay overnight in a ger camp close to the dunes.

Day 11
This morning we will have the opportunity to use a different type of transport. We will be riding on camels today to explore these massive sand dunes. The two-humped camels are very comfortable to ride, as they walk slowly and gently and we will be well supported by the humps, sitting comfortably between them. Our camel man will take us to the sand dunes. After lunch at the ger camp we will drive back to the Bayanzag area overnight will at Three camel lodge ger camp.
