Tested photographers are often mesmerised by the varied natural and cultural wonders that Mongolia has to offer. This photography tour will guide you to through the best of Mongolia’s photography sites, to assist you create a magnificent mosaic of Mongolia.

The first leg of the tour will lead you through the highlights of the Central Mongolia including photography visits to the beautiful Khorgo-Terkh national park, ancient capital at Karakorum with the legendary Erdene Zuu Monastery, and the UNESCO world heritage Orkhon River Valley. On the second half of the journey, you will explore the climaxes of the mysterious Gobi Desert such as Bayanzag Flaming Cliffs and explore for dinosaur remains, enjoy a sunset camel ride at the Khongor sand dunes and oasis, and hike in the glacial Yoliin Am Gorge with glimpses of rare wildlife, for the best possible photo opportunities. Moreover, a day at a village Naadam Festival will provide you with an intimate experience of rural Naadam featuring The Three Manly Games of the Mongols including the archery, wrestling and horse races as well as traditionally dressed locals and their music and dances.

Besides these, you will have the opportunity to meet and photograph real nomads. You might have heard many stories of travellers being dazed by the sincere hospitality of the nomads. However, if you look deeper into their spirit, you will witness how strong, stern nomadic men can be moved to tears by their race horses rushing to a finish line. Their lifestyle, religion and philosophy are shaped by the Mother Nature to a great degree; and nomadic customs, music, literature and costumes have been passed through centuries. And in this hectic 21st century only Mongolian nomads welcome strangers with unlocked doors. There will be plenty of occasions you will meet real nomadic people and enjoy their heartwarming hospitality during this photography tour.
