Additional Information

Rolling steppe make way to stark desert; small nomadic ger camps pepper this vast land where camels and goats are herded on horseback, fermented mare’s milk is the tipple of choice, sand dunes are known to ‘sing’ and the first intact dinosaur eggs were found. Genghis Khan went forth from here on horseback to conquer the biggest land empire in history and, to this day, Buddhist and Animist traditions mix. We travel through steppe, mountains and the Gobi Desert exploring the nature and culture of this fascinating, yet little known country before making our way to the far western reaches to visit the Eagle Festival, celebrating the fascinating past time of hunting with eagles and the strong connection the Mongolian people have with their animals and land. This departure of the Eagle Festival tour visits Gobi Gurvansaikhan N. P. at the start of the trip.
