Fight to Dalanzadgad, the center of South Gobi province. Drive to “Vulture’s Gorge” – Yol Valley situated in the northeastern part of Zuun Saikhan Mountain of Gobi Gurvan Saikhan Mountain. This area has been the main attraction of tourists for many decades. The valley is named after the Mongolian name of Bearded vulture, Yoliin Am. The valley is very wide at the entrance and it narrows gradually into a remarkable gorge. The area, as part of the Gobi Desert, sees little precipitation. However, Yoliin Am is notable for a glacier, in recent years it’s melting by July, due to global warming. The ice field reaches several meters thick by the end of winter and stretches several kilometers long. Trekking along the beautiful valley. Overnight at Gobi Mirage ger camp. (B/L/D)
After breakfast drive to Bayanzag – the cradle of dinosaur fossils. Many rare archaeological and historical findings have been found here and some of them can be found in the American Museum of Natural History. American Expedition to Central Asia led by Roy Chapman Andrews traveled through the Mongolian Gobi in 1922 and 1923. The findings were carried by 70 camels to China and shipped to the USA. This place is well-known as “Flaming Cliffs” in the world because it looks like a flame in the sunset and that’s why some American archaeologists called so when they were in the Gobi in 1923. Mongolia is one of three leading countries with dinosaur findings with counterparts USA and China. (B/L/D)
