Mongolia - The Gobi (Chapter)

6th Edition Jul 2011

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

To be sure, the Gobi is a bleak place: vast, harsh and silent and there are many who will question your sanity if you choose to travel there. But it is the profound emptiness and terrible isolation that draws adventurers to its fold.
