Day 1 Ulaanbaatar

After landing you'll be picked up by one of our Followthetracks/ SIXT staff members - simply look out for the sign in the arrival hall. You'll be brought to a 3* hotel in Ulaanbaatar and handed out a local SIM card with call and internet package. Explore the vibrant City of Ulaanbaatar before the road adventure starts.

Day 2 - 3 White Stupa & Canyon

You will drive a paved road to southern Mongolia before leaving the beaten paths and going off-road for the following days. The Followthetracks app will guide you to some incredible places like White Stupa and Yolyn Am Canyon where you'll get used to the wilderness in a blink of an eye. Sit around the camp fire and let your soul wander off under a crystal clear sky.

Day 4 - 5 Flaming Cliffs & Gobi

Next stop: Flaming Cliffs - an incredible cliff structure which looks like it is on fire when the sun sets. At Khongoryn Els you have the chance to ride camels and photograph them during sunset in the desert. Meet Zorigoo - the camel herder - from Max Masterclass videos.

Day 6 - 7 Orkhon Waterfalls

The waterfalls in Orkhon Valley are the highest falls in the country. They are located in the heart of Mongolia, surrounded by volcanic rock formations, vast and - during the summer months - lush and green forests. The famous valley is a World Heritage Site and is representing the evolution of nomadic pastoral traditions spanning more than two millennia.

Day 8 - 9 Karakorum

Karakorum was Chinggis Khan's captial and therefore, between 1235 and 1260, the former center of power of planet earth. You will visit the impressive Erdene Zuu Monastery and if you are lucky, you can watch one of the traditional and very colourful ceremonies in front of the temples.

Day 10 - 12 Khustain Nuruu

The last stop on the Camel Route marks the Khustain Nuruu National Park - home to the country's last truly wild horses, called Przewalski Horses. Camp under the endless Mongolian night sky one last time and enjoy the evening around a camp fire.

Day 13 Ulaanbaatar & Departure

Even the most amazing trip will eventually come to an end, so visit Ulaanbaatar again - or ask us to extend your trip: we have plenty of more things for your to do and places to visit! A SIXT/ Follow The Tracks staff member will pick you up at your hotel on the day of departure and will bring you safely to the airport.
