This expedition is arranged in the western remote part of the Gobi desert where some of the most significant dinosaur fossils have been discovered. Your trip begins in Ulaanbaatar, where you will visit several of the best-known museums and sites such as the Laboratory of the Mongolian Institute of Paleontology. We will then fly to the heart of the Gobi desert from where we will continue traveling overland to the central and western part of the Gobi Desert where some of the most scenic and obscure landscapes await us. This part of the Gobi belongs from the middle to the late Cretaceous period, about 90-60 million years ago, which was a key period for dinosaur evolution. For the remainder of this trip, you will be living a life of an expedition member, staying in tents. Daily work includes prospecting for fossils accompanied by your paleontologist and guide and exploring the local flora and fauna. Hearty meals will be served each day by our expert field-chef following adventurous days of field prospecting and working.
