ITINERARY

Day 1
Ulaanbaatar
Arrive in Ulaanbaatar and check-in at a 5-star hotel, located within walking distance from the beating heart of the city, where traditional gers and Buddhist monasteries sit side by side modern high-rises.
Day 2
Ulaanbaatar
Visit Gandan Monastery, the seat of Buddhism in Mongolia and drive through downtown Ulaanbaatar to the National Museum for an overview of Mongolia’s culture and history. After lunch, explore Zanabazar Fine Arts Museum, which contains one of the best collections of Buddhist art in the world. A fascinating performance of Khoomi throat singers is in store for the afternoon, along with a traditional welcome dinner.
Day 3
Ulaanbaatar
Drive to nearby Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, a mountain forest and steppe, shelter for various endangered species. Embark on an adventurous hike towards the Aryabal Monastery, take a deep breathe and gaze at spectacular views of the surrounding green valley. Enjoy lunch at a luxury lodge and spend the rest of the day exploring the national park, hiking or horseback riding. Return to Ulaanbaatar this afternoon and, en route, stop to visit the Chinggis Khaan Equestrian Statue.
Day 4
Kharakhorum
Drive to Kharakhorum, past the Orkhon Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which encapsulates the iconic image of Mongolia. Enjoy a picnic lunch at a scenic location. On arrival, settle in at an all-inclusive ger camp, your home for two days. In the evening, immerse yourself in tradition, witnessing a unique shaman ceremony.
Day 5
Kharakhorum
This morning, visit the famous Erdene Zuu Monastery, Mongolia’s largest monastery, surrounded by 108 stupas, and the impressive Kharakhorum Museum. Spend the rest of the day at leisure.
Day 6
Gobi
Continue your journey southwards, driving through the rolling hills of central Mongolia and meeting nomadic families on the way. Take a picnic lunch and by early afternoon, arrive at Ongiin Hiid. Explore the ruins of this 17th century temple that lays nestled among mountains. Enter the vast Ongi Steppes, meet nomadic families and get to know about their culture and customs. By early evening, arrive at a luxury ger camp, located at Bulagtai Mountain, on the edge of Gobi Gurvan Saikhan National Park. Spend the rest of the evening at leisure and explore the surroundings.
Day 7
Gobi
Drive to Yol Valley National Park, cradled in the foothills of the Altai Mountains. An ancient river carved this surprisingly green valley, and its remnant streams create ice formations at the base of the valley that sometimes persist as late as July. Hike through the valley to the habitat of indigenous vulture-like Lammergeiers, Altai snowcocks, ibex, yaks, and Argali mountain sheep. Enjoy lunch and dinner at the lodge.
Day 8
Gobi
Drive to Moltsog Els, one of the few regions of the Gobi, covered by sand dunes. Explore the sand dunes on foot or on the back of a Bactrian camel, and meet a local camel-herding family. Head off to the legendary Flaming Cliffs, named after the rich-in-dinosaur-fossils sandstone that glows at sunrise and sunset. Return to the lodge for dinner and relaxation.
Day 9
Ulaanbataar
Take a domestic flight to Ulaanbaatar and visit the Bogd Khan Palace Museum, home of Mongolia’s last theocrat, Bogd Jabtzan Damba Hutagt VIII, Mongolia’s "8th Living Buddha". Settle in at the hotel, and spend the rest of the day at leisure. A farewell dinner is planned for this evening.
Day 10
Ulaanbaatar
Drive to the airport to take your departure flight home.
