Starting point of our excursion is Dalandzagad, central city at the boundaries of the „Gurvan Sayah“ national park. In the famous „canyon of the vultures“ a small river has carved the amazing landscape and assembles huge amounts of ice during winter that often last till late summer.
The sand dune „Khongoriin Els, the highest dune in the Mongolian part of the Gobi is another stop on our trip. At its foot lays a small grassy oasis. The battle between the river and the masses of sand has left many interesting formations that dominate the landscape here.
We visit the „cemetery of the dinosaurs – Bayanzag“ also called “red cliffs”. The cliffs are well known for findings of dinosaur skeletons, Sven Hedin was one of the first explorers who discovered fossils here. In Bayanzag you can also visit the biggest saxaul forrests of the Gobi.
