Mongolia travel guide

Mongolia - The Gobi (Chapter)

7th Edition Jul 2014

This is the Gobi chapter from Lonely Planet's Mongolia guidebook.

The Gobi is a bleak place; vast, harsh and silent. But it is the profound emptiness and terrible isolation that draws adventurers to its fold. In a world of smartphones and social media, there are few places on the planet where it is still possible to fall completely off the radar like you can do in the Gobi.

  • go fossil hunting at Bayanzag, the beautiful 'flaming cliffs', rich in dinosaur bones and fossil eggs
  • transport
