The area is under Strictly Protected status due to its outstandingly beautiful landscapes and endangered wild species.

Truly amazing epic landscape is begging for your exploration. You will have opportunities to trek in majestic, snow-capped Altai Mountains, up to 3,800 m and scenic Gobi Desert, while meeting nomadic people, experiencing their cultures of horse and camel riding. Observing variety of wild species is one of the main emphases of the trip. You are likely to see Wild Ibex, Saiga Antelope and Black Tailed Gazelle.  The Depression of Great Lakes is the remarkable wet land  area in Mongolia and is famous for its marshal and desert  birdlife (240 species) including Relic Gull, Cormorant, Pelican, Heron, Mandarin Duck, Whooper Swan, Arctic Tern, Lap Wing, Sand Grouse, Sand Owl, Falcon,  Steppe and Golden Eagle and many more. Also you will explore one of the tallest ‘singing’ sand dunes in the Mongolia. Some part of this trip is challenging that demands good physical strength.
