Expedition Highlights

  • Be among the first to travel on this new itinerary that focuses on Mongolia’s unique culture and breathtaking landscapes.
  • Attend the annual state and local Naadam Festivals to witness the traditional Mongolian sports of wrestling, archery, and horseback riding.
  • Stay in peaceful ger camps, supremely situated in areas of great natural beauty, and meet with traditional nomadic herding families to learn about their ancient customs and daily life. 
  • Explore the Gobi Desert by camel-back and visit the Flaming Cliffs, a hauntingly beautiful landscape where sandstone canyons have yielded an amazing collection of dinosaur fossils.

Zegrahm put together full days (and nights too!) of brilliant lectures, splendid local performances, and personable and knowledgeable local guides. This trip was worth the time, price, and even the early-morning wake-up calls—always!
