Day 1: TO IKH NART NATRURE RESERVE

Stop At: Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Dalanjargalan Mongolia
Our Mongolian Camel Trek will start by picking you up from your hotel in Ulaanbaatar at 08h00 and transfer to the Ulaanbaatar railway station. Depart by the slow train at 09h00 and spend 6h20 travelling southeast over the grassland steppe, which gradually turns into more arid Gobi Steppe. Disembark at Shivee Gobi railway station, the next stop after the town of Choir. The train platform is seemingly in the middle of no­where, but actually there is a small town called Shivee Gobi just 1½ km distant. It serves a nearby open pit coal mine. From there we will drive 60 km to our Red Rock Wilderness Ger Camp, which is located on its own, right next to the Ikh Nart Nature Reserve.
Duration: 30 minutes

Meals included:
• Lunch

Accommodation included: Ikhnart Nature reserve. Ger camp

Day 2: CAMEL TREK

Stop At: Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Dalanjargalan Mongolia
Today we load your luggage and all provisions to the camel carts and set out on our guided walk through the reserve. It is labyrinth of rock formations and it is easy to get lost. We explore the ruins of a temple, that has been destroyed in the Stalinist purges of the 1930s. Because of horrible stories, locals avoid the place. There are fantastic petroglyphs in the area as well as ancient graves from Hunnu Empire, Turkic Khanate Empire, Imperial and Manchurian times. All layers of Mongolian archaeology are present. We will arrive at our remote cozy ger camp at Elst, which has been set up ahead of time. The name Elst indicates this is an area of minor sand dunes.
Duration: 20 minutes

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Elst Ger Camp.

Day 3: ELST AREA

Stop At: Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Dalanjargalan Mongolia
We will remain in the ger camp at Elst for another night and explore this wild area of rock formations, sands and grasses, growing up to two meters high. There is also a small ephemeral (seasonal) lake, which sometimes has desert tadpole shrimps (Triops spp.), a relative of other tadpole shrimps found in the deserts of the Middle East and the south­western United States. The surroundings are rich in petroglyphs and rock art, and we may come across Argali Sheep and Siberian Ibex as we explore this dramatic area.
Duration: 30 minutes

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at Ger (Yurt)

Day 4: MANKHAN ELS

Stop At: Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Dalanjargalan Mongolia
Today we load the camel caravan with our luggage. We walk north to the Mankhan Els area, situated at the edge of the Ikh Nart plateau. The dunes here are much higher than at Elst and offer fabulous views over the vast desert steppe plains below. We set up our camp here for the night.
Duration: 30 minutes

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Ikhnart Rocks Wilderness Ger Camp

Day 5: TO ULAANBAATAR

Stop At: Ulaanbaatar Railway Station, Teeverchid Street, Ulaanbaatar Mongolia
At mid-morning, we set out for our journey back to Ulaanbaatar by car or minibus. We will drive until the tarmac road, and further on we will visit some remote Buddha statues in the rock faces at Choiriin Bogd Mountain. It is a detour to the east from the ugly little Soviet built town of Choir, 80 km away from camp. Choir is also a railway station along the Trans-Mongo­lian Railway between Ulaanbaatar and China. We will have a picnic lunch and then we will continue the drive back to the capital which takes approximately 4½ hours.
Duration: 30 minutes
