"Talk to the people and listen..." Mongolia Favorite Tip by elsbeth

Mongolia General: 90 reviews and 116 photos

Favorite thing: Talk to the people and listen to the throat singers. Try to get away from the capital and out into the countryside. There is a ger camp in the Gobi which accomodates tourists.

Fondest memory: Sleeping under the stars in the Gobi desert, where the Milky Way is a solid band across the sky, with dinosaurs eroding out of the red cliffs. I spent three weeks in a tent in the Gobi, by the Flaming Cliffs (of dinosaur fame.) No faxes, no phones, no news, no electricity (also of course no bathrooms or other minor amenities.) Lots of peace and quiet!

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
