Our tour lands in Mongolia's capital, Ulaanbaatar, the jumping off point for our next-day departure for the inhospitable Gobi Desert region. A place of barren beauty and sparse populations of inhabitants, the Gobi makes for a truly otherworldly experience and our trip to the Yol Valley sees us exploring a surprisingly lush and green area rich in dinosaur fossils, unique rock formations and massive arrays of exotic bird- and animal- life. We overnight in 'gers', traditional movable dome structures that nomads have used for generations, adding that little bit of authenticity to our expedition. We stop in at some of the richest historical and archaeological sites in Central Asia, admiring 400-year-old temples and ruins, before ending our tour with a bang at the Naadam Festival, the largest annual celebration in Mongolia.

Excellent tour Interesting for me the total impression was more than a sum of the parts. I think this was partly due to the efforts of [Tour Leader] Jonathan and Toya to let us visit local families and get a better feel for the country
