The Gobi Crossing is our desert expedition exploring the more remote parts of the Gobi, and with most nights spent in tented camps. It brings you not only to some of the iconic sites like the “Vulture Gorge”, “Flaming Cliffs” and “Singing Sands”. I takes you through amazing landscapes and to prehistoric sites that reflect the long and intriguing human history of this region. Much of the Gobi Crossing is in Mongolia’s largest National Park – Gobi Gurvan Saikhan or “The Three Beauties of the Gobi”. It also takes in local protected areas and sites. The Gobi Crossing allows for enough time to take in the landscapes, the vistas, and the silence of the desert. Spend evenings in a desert camp and watch the amazing night
Adventure Travel for a Great Desert Experience
We travel in 4×4 vehicles with experienced desert
drivers and guides. A full camp and kitchen, our provisions and water travel with us, so we are free to choose our overnight camps in the desert. The first and last day of the 10 days of travel are on sealed roads. Most of the remaining travel is on dirt roads or tracks, and occasionally off-road/track though we take care not to make new tracks or drive on fragile ground.
