Explore the vibrant City of Ulaanbaatar before the road adventure starts.

You will drive à 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 Lake Buntsagaan

After an adventurous night in another canyon overlooking Gobi Desert, you will find yourself camping next to Buuntsaagan Lake, a unique place which attracts thousands of birds, horses and camels. Get ready for a long trip across the steppes.

Day 8 - 9 Steppe & Khovd

It might sound strange to you but the most amazing part of traveling across Mongolia is the drive through the endless steppes, seeing the landscapes change quickly and forgetting about the rush and stress at home to clear your mind completely. You will also meet a real nomad family, stay with them, help them herd the animals and learn about their culture and music.

Day 10 - 12 Altai & Eagle Hunters

Snowy peaks await you in the Altai Mountains where you'll stay with the legendary eagle hunters and get introduced to their Kazakh food and music. Ride horses, watch the eagle hunter training their majestic birds and get amazing portraits during sunset and sunrise. The last night you'll spend in the capital of the region, Ulgii.

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.
