Travel Destinations in the Gobi

The Gobi covers almost a third of the mongolian territory. The Mongols distinguish between 33 different kinds of "Gobi". Only a small part of it consists of sand, even if then those parts form particularly spectacular dunes. Most of the desert has more the character of dry steppe, which offers seasonal pastures to the herds of the nomads. The natural fauna consists of wild horses, camels, ibex, gazelles, and snow leopards.
