The Gobi Desert in southern Mongolia is well recognized for being a unique habitat and the home of the dinosaurs. The Gobi is the nation’s most fascinating region and you are welcome to discover its secrets. This region is well-known for its distinctive natural formations and flora and fauna that are exclusive to this area. Contrary to popular belief, the region is largely steppe, home to camel herders, and abundant in animals. You may encounter herds of gazelles, glimpses of the endangered wild Bactrian camel, Khulan (Asiatic wild ass) and so forth. There are numerous photo opportunities, from stunning natural formations to photo settings with camel herders, which are all unique to this area.
The world’s largest reservoir of dinosaur fossils is located in Mongolia’s Gobi Desert. Regarding the final stage of dinosaur evolution, the late Cretaceous period—the last of the three major periods of the dinosaur age—and the fossils from that period, the region is particularly significant.
