Flaming Cliffs, Mongolia

Mongolia

For explorers who delight in unique cultures, possess a sense of humor, flexibility, and a true spirit of adventure, a Mongolia tour is just the ticket. The “Land of Blue Sky” is a stunning, wide-open landscape where wild horses thunder across grassy steppes, native people endure as nomadic herdsmen, and the fossilized bones of dinosaurs await discovery in hidden canyons. Depending on the time of year, guests may even get to experience the Naadam Festival, held both in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, and further out in the country. Observe the traditional Mongolian sports of wrestling, horse racing, and archery—and enjoy the opportunity to try some out yourself! The Gobi Desert, Flaming Cliffs, and Hustai National Park round out a true Mongolia adventure.

    It had been a long run up the broad, shallow river, the color of milky tea.  We were packed shoulder to shoulder, sitting on the rounded bulwarks of our Zodiacs, the rigid inflatable boats carrying us from our small expedition cruise ship, the Caledonian Sky, to our day’s adventure.

    Coral reefs: The bustling underwater cities of vibrant colored structures. Bearing a resemblance to Cinque Terre with as much, if not more, drama and passion of animals fleeting around the streets. It wasn’t so long ago that we were sliding into the turquoise waters that blanket these colorful cities, bobbing around like neoprene blimps observing their day to day lives.

    As we remain at home during these crazy times, I find myself looking back on so many wonderful travel memories. The yearning to “hit the road” hangs over me while I cook, hike, and do my daily yoga in beautiful Marin, California. I feel blessed and lucky to be able to dream of future adventures.
