Welcome to Dundgovi

Dundgovi’s allure lies in its mysterious rock formations, which mainly appear at two locations: Baga Gazryn Chuluu and Ikh Gazryn Chuluu. At both you’ll find large granite pinnacles and winding canyons that make for fantastic hiking and bouldering. The water that manages to collect in these areas supports wildlife such as argali sheep and ibexes.

Nomadic Mongolia

Long after the reign of Genghis Khan, nomadism remains a way of life in modern Mongolia. But with so much to see and do here, it’s only natural that people would want to move about and explore. This adventure taps into the nomadic lifestyle embraced by almost 40% of the local population, travelling through ruggedly beautiful gorges and sandstone mountains in search of golden eagles, desert gazelles, and the Mongolian horse. And when you’re not moving, you’ll experience local customs up close, exploring rural villages and sleeping in traditional ger tents.
