If you don't have time for a multi-day tour to the Gobi desert, try this one day "Semi-Gobi" experience instead. Instead of flying to the desert, take a short drive to Elsen Tasarkhai, a semi-desert region with mountains in the distance. After lunch, take a hike or take a horse or camel ride to the sand dunes. You'll also make a short visit to a local nomadic family to learn about their culture and traditions before heading back to Ulaanbaatar.
  • Day trip to Elsen Tasarkhai from Ulaanbaatar
  • Ride a horse or camel to the sand dunes
  • Visit a local nomadic family
  • Tour guide, lunch, and hotel pickup/drop-off included

Nice trip!!! Bat was a very nice guide who told us a lot about history and culture in mongolia. And I had the oppurtunati to ride a camel :)

This tour was a lot of fun. From Animals crossing the roads to riding a camel. I will never forget this trip. Plus a great guide.

If I could have stayed the night with the nomadic family, my trip would have been complete. Loved them. Fed us local food, horse milk to drink which is a must. Camel ride was fun but not good for your man bits. Tour guide took us off the trek to see vast wilderness.

Very pleasant tour to Semi-Gobi and visiting of nomads families. Friendly and helpful guide. Interesting information on the tour and beyond. Good knowledge of English.
We have enjoyed our time and received a lot of positive emotions (many thanks to the guide).
