The Gobi Desert is one is one of Mongolia's top visitor regions, despite being of the most remote places on earth, and it can only be best described as ‘a bleak place’. It is vast, and eerie, and it is this complete emptiness and isolation that draws visitors year after year.It is the ultimate place to escape a world of smartphones, social media and online shopping. And it is possible to fall completely off the radar here!

In recent years, the Gobi Desert has had an explosion of ger camps making the exploration of the colossal sand dunes, ice-filled canyons, dinosaur fossils and enjoying camel treks even easier and sleeping in a ger if great fun!
