- Khongorin Sand Dunes(Khongoryn Else): Among the sharp landscape of the desert lies the sweet exception of Khongoryn Else, the “singing sand dunes”, where the wind accumulated the sand on the slopes of a black mountain chain: a majestic view where the grazing bactrian camels will welcome the adventurous voyagers. The complete massif is 20 km wide, 100 km long, and up to 800 m high. Individual dunes reach heights of up to 30 m. Climbing on some of the dunes near the edge leads into magnificent sandscapes. The sand is very fine, and invites to extended gliding sessions. Given the right winds (mostly in autumn), air turbulences at the ridges of the dunes will create a characteristic sound. This "chant" has given the landscape its name.
- Gobi Desert: The legendary Gobi Desert measures over 1,610 km from southwest to northeast and 800 km from north to south making it the fifth largest desert in the world and Asia's largest. Much of the Gobi is not sandy but is covered with bare rock, a harsh and scaly desert where in wintertime the temperature can plummet to -40°C while reaching 45°C during the summertime.
