The Gobi

The Gobi

The Gobi is a general Mongolian description of the entire South, one third of the country. It is not a complete desert, as often perceived by Westerners. It is claimed to hold 33 different ecosystems of which only 3 per cent is sand desert. Most of it is semi-desert. There are also small mountain areas with snow leopards and its prey species argali sheep and Siberian ibexes. Arguably, these are not desert species. In fact, since Nomadic Journeys have done trips for The International Snow Leopard Trust, we know the densest area of Snow Leopards in the world are to be found in the South Gobi.

  • Living the mongolian way

    Great place to stay and experience mongolian way of living, no tv, wifi, phone. Just nature and great company of the staff and livestocks of mongolia. The toilet is a hole in the ground covered by a shed. It is clean, but can be smelly to those used to city life. Not hot water supply, inform the staff that you like to hot water half an hour earlier so that they can boil it over camel dung 🙂
