Welcome to Great Gobi Strictly Protected Area

It's divided into 'Gobi A' (Southern Altai Gobi) and 'Gobi B' (Dzungarian Gobi). Gobi A is over 44,000 sq km in the southern part of the aimag, near Gurvantes; Gobi B is 8810 sq km in the southwest of Gov-Altai and neighbouring Khovd. Together, the area is the fourth-largest biosphere reserve in the world and protects wild asses, Gobi bears, wild Bactrian camels and jerboas, among other endangered animals.

For both parts of the park you will need a very reliable vehicle and an experienced driver, and you must be completely self-sufficient with supplies of food, water and camping gear. A ranger will probably track you down and collect park entry fees.
