Elsen Tasarkhai Sand Dunes


  • Sand dunes very close to Ulaanbaatar perfect for people on short trips who do not want to miss out on the Gobi desert
  • Camel riding, many local people keep camels specifically for travellers to ride across the dunes

Travel from Ulaanbaatar:

Driving takes 2 hours on good roads.

Advice :

Makes a perfect day trip from the city for people who do not have time to make a full trip to the Gobi desert but who do not want to miss out on the chance to see sand dunes.

Make sure to agree a price for camel riding and pay in advance or you may face a higher price than you expected when you return.

Take good boots with you and be prepared to do some walking in the area to go from dune to dune and of course to climb the dunes when you get there.
