Gobi Gurvansaikhan National Park

Gobi Altai, Mongolia

The point where the snow-dusted steppe crashes into the sand sea of the sweeping Gobi Desert is a place unlike anywhere else on earth. It can be found in the southern depths of Mongolia, hemmed in by an amphitheater of ice-caked peaks. Inhospitable and bitterly cold, hardly any humans make their home here.

Those that do come dressed in tough cashmere-hair jerkins, and spend their days wandering the plains with ger tents in tow. Travelers who brave the wilderness of Gobi Gurvansaikhan will get to see natural wonders like the singing dunes of Khongoryn Els, and the chiseled gorges of the Yolyn Am.
