Camel riding at Khongor sand dunes

Umnugobi Province, Southern Mongolia

Riding a two-humped camel would be the most exotic thing to do in the Mongolian Gobi. 

The best place to try camel riding is the Khongor Sand dunes Area that you can experience beautiful scenery and exhilarating riding - a wonderful combination! 

Riding camels is surprisingly more comfortable than horse riding because they walk slowly and gently, and we will be well supported by the humps, sitting comfortably between them. 

The Mongolian Gobi is the habitat of the Bactrian camel. 

They  are used for 

  • Transportation (can carry 170-250kg (370-55-lb) for 47km (30miles) per day.)
  • Hair is used for the rope which encircles Traditional Mongolian Ger dwelling (yurt)
  • Wool is used for garment and sock
  • Provide milk and meat
