South Gobi by Plane


Gobi Desert is one of the world’s legendary places, feared as uninhabitable yet attracting travelers because it is so forbidding. It covers one third of Mongolia’s land area, and is fascinating for its geography, history and pre-history, plants, animals and human society. Mongolians list 33 types of gobi, depending on soil color and composition. There is a lot of variety within the Gobi Desert, from wildlife parks and mountains to canyons with dramatic rockfaces.
