Steppes & Gobi Desert

MONGOLIA

Mongolia is situated in the heart of the great continent of Asia, sandwiched between China in the south and Russia in the north, and it shares a short border with Kazakhstan to the west.

With its size of 1.5 million sq. kms and population of 2.5 million people (with 1.5 million living in Ulaanbaatar), it is one of the least densely populated countries on the planet.

The vast open spaces give a wonderful feeling of freedom and loneliness, but also of true wilderness.


Nature here is shaped by the climate which, except in the spring, is nothing but harsh. Bitterly cold winters with temperatures as low as -50°C and baking hot summers at over 50°C have resulted in huge deserts and steppes with little vegetation.


Mongolia is home to a great variety of wildlife and some of the rarest animals in the world are found here – Snow Leopard, the only true wild camels, Argali Sheep, Wild Ass and the recently re-introduced Przewalski's Horse. But we are here for the birds and what birds they are – Black-billed Capercaillie, Greater Sandplover and Oriental Plovers, Pallas's Fish Eagle, Pallas's and Relict Gulls, Altai Snowcock, Henderson's Ground Jay, Saxaul Sparrow, Pallas's Sandgrouse, Azure Tit, Citrine Wagtail, Saker and Amur Falcons, Demoiselle and White-naped Cranes and many more.


To see all this variety we visit various habitats – the vast steppe, some steppe lakes, taiga forests, sand dunes with saxaul trees and rocky gorges.


This itinerary has been designed so that it is not too strenuous, but will give a real insight into the wilderness of the country and we stay mainly in ger (yurt) camps to experience the true Mongolian lifestyle.
