Overview

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

A great tour. Best way to see a little bit of the desert in a day from UB. You get to visit and talk with a nomadic family and ride a camel or a horse in amazing landscapes. Highly recommended!

Really enjoyed this trip. A great way to explore outside of the city if you do not have time to spend a few nights in the Gobi desert. Amazing scenery, and lots of photo stops.

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.
