Khongor Sand Dunes are some of the largest sand dunes, where it stretches for 180 kilometres across the desert. It lies about 200 km from Dalanzadgad (the capital of South Gobi province), covering more than 900 sq km on the northwest. The tallest dune is popularly known as Singing Dune as a result of low-pitched sounds made out of moving pieces of sands by just gentle breeze. These dunes, reaching upwards of 1,400m, are the Gobi’s most magnificent sand dunes. Thanks to the isolation, the sand dunes are kept attractive for thousands of years.
Visiting a nomadic family and riding a Bactrian camel along the beautiful sand dunes will make your trip authentic and unforgettable.
With the surroundings, the sand dune offers a diversity of vibrant colours. From the top of Singing Dune, you can have a panoramic view of the dunes along with green meadow. Besides its beauty, the area is home for rare birds and small mammals such as Gobi jerboa.
The accommodations are mostly tourist Ger camps, however, authentic Homestay with nomadic family and camping are available depending on the season.
