Mongolia's Ancient Karakorum Travel Program

Gobi-Karakorum-Elstei

Travel to the mystic Gobi desert, and take a day trip to see the revered Yoliin Am, home of the giant Yol eagles and snow leopards, where you may be able to sight rare animals such as the wild argali sheep, gazelles, and of course, the giant eagles. Then drive to the site where fossilized dinosaur skeletons have been found, and see the Gobi Saksaul forest. You will also get a chance to visit Khogno Khaan monastery near the Bayangobi camp. Then, take another day trip to the ruins of the infamous Karakorum (Chinggis Khaan chose it to be the capital city of his empire in 1220), and see the Erdenezuu Monastery, built in 1586. In between your trip, you will also get a chance to explore Ulaanbaatar and visit the most notable spots.
