  • Naadam Festival and the Gobi Desert, Mongolia - Traveller's Tales
    watching the wrestling some trot through the crowds Everyone from toddlers to grandparents are in their very smartest deels and matching hats in the brightest of colours neon pink turquoise bright blue a feast for the eyes Couples in matching outfits and fancy saddles on the horses Our lodging for those two nights was an eco lodge on the far banks of the lake It was our favourite camp the peace and beauty of that place cannot be bettered We were amongst the pine trees wild flowers were aplenty the waves lapped at the shore and bleached driftwood formed sculptures on the beach A yak or two grazed along with the requisite horses and a full moon rose over the trees Total magic We had a bonfire that night and the Mongolians sang wonderfully tuneful folk songs around it for us A brilliant last night The eco camp on the edge of the lake peace and tranquility Our Nadaam adventure came to an end and after a quick stopover in UB we headed south to explore the Gobi Just when we thought there could not possibly be more vast open spaces there we were in the Gobi miles upon miles upon miles of space The scenery was so very different from what we had already seen Not the lush meadows and soft hills covered in larch and pine but wide wide open spaces covered in scrubby vegetation wildflowers and wild chives and then out of nowhere mountains suddenly appearing No gentle slopes just suddenly purple grey mountain peaks like a choppy stormy sea or the rough icing on a Christmas cake We headed for the Flaming Cliffs which are aptly named and not only beautiful but also the site of discovery of the first dinosaur eggs and skeletons back in the 1920 s We scratched around in the sand hoping to find a scrap of dinosaur bone I am convinced I did Camels in the Gobi Desert Mongolia We spent two nights overlooking the longest range of sand dunes in the Gobi 120 kms the tallest of which is around 300m We tried to climb it but all except our gazelle of a guide gave up half way It was a case of one step up and then slide two metres backwards but the view even from halfway up was spectacular Another excursion was through a giant gorge called Lammergeier s Mouth so named after the giant bearded vultures circling above We picniced in the shade of the huge cliffs and then walked on Later in the day in another gorge so deep in the cliffs we find ice And then we pop out onto the flat flat steppe again On our final excursion we clambered up a rocky hill to inspect ancient petrographs incised on rocks at the top Lesley fell in love with the extraordinary landscape of Mongolia I absolutely loved Mongolia It is a wonderful open free and very beautiful country The people are proud stoic friendly

  • Exploring Mongolia's Countryside - Traveller's Tales
    temple on a hill Just as you think you have come to terms with so much space you top a mountain and there is more and more and more Nothing but green flower covered hills and valleys and steppe with more herds of horses and goats roaming free An occasional horseman checking the livestock or just galloping across the land for the sheer joy of it When you see a horseman on the steppe you cannot believe that they are not one being they are so in tune with each other A Mongolian ovoo Our days were spent driving through this beautiful huge empty country We stopped at ovoo s piles of rocks topped with blue scarves as offerings to the spirits You pass by them clockwise and place a pebble or something important to you We stopped one day at a large stupa where we met with a young boy on his motorbike who was checking his iPhone to let his family know where their herds were Modern technology comes to Mongolia Our nights were in ger camps where we had excellent food In one camp close to Kharkorin we were treated to an evening of Mongolian folk music played on horse head fiddles With only two strings the most wonderful tunes were produced and of course there was throat singing Young monks at Kharkorin herald the morning chant on conches In Kharkorin we listened to the monks blowing conch shells to announce the morning chanting A young boy was there with his horse whip and helmet to get them blessed for the coming Nadaam festival And we had the most wonderful picnics on top of hills by huge boulders which looked as if the gods had piled them up as an ovoo or in meadows full of wild flowers where we had caviar and bacon butties For two nights we stayed in a refugio which was a private ger camp just three gers close by a family of herdsmen by a clear racing river in a green lush valley full of wildflowers and larch and pine trees surrounded by horses goats and yaks A new definition of peace and quiet The family cooked traditional dishes for us A huge pile of mutton in a giant pot over a stove into which they put hot rocks to sear the meat Top that with cabbage and you have a meal for nomads Dried curds for sale at the market From the window of the vans we saw so many solitary things A single goat a horse a man walking a yak a horsemen galloping across the open spaces Everyone and everything moving at their own pace We passed more herds of yaks and cows munching in harmony When the yak runs all his wonderful hair sways like bead curtains Camels stand patiently in a line as if waiting for a bus Goats are in herds which keep changing shape like a kaleidoscope Brown white and black looking like rocks piled
