"Camels" Mongolia Favorite Tip by Willettsworld

Mongolia General: 90 reviews and 116 photos

Favorite thing: Umnogobi province is home to part of the Gobi desert and, of course, you'll see plenty of these guys walking around along the dirt tracks. These are Bactrian camels that normally have a fury neck during the winder but this is sheered for wool during the summer. Mongolian's capture wild camels and it takes a year for them to be obedient but well worth the time as a camel can transport up to 160kg in weight, 100 miles a day without food or water.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
