6 day.

The most hard-to-get place in the Gobi.

Hermen Tzav canyon is surrounded by majestic barkhans, scarp slopes, and columns of sandstone, weathered in bizarre shapes, which have been observed by tamarisks for many years. This natural boundary is one of the most hard-to-get areas in Gobi. That's why Hermen translated from Mongolian means a hermit. As a result of weathering there were formed such relief elements as stone-sand columns. The view is amazing. There are different types of columns: small, large and giant, when approaching to it. There is a viewing platform. This day is dedicated only to it. Overnight stop is in the tents.

7 day.

Singing sands.

Our journey continues. Along the way we will visit the place of rock engravings. The famous sand barkhans Hongoryn Els ("light-red sands"), also known as "singing sands" – that is our goal for today. At sunrise and sunset the sand dunes are illuminated by golden light and mysterious melodies can be heard over the whole territory. All this is explained by scientists as a constant movement of sands. But it is still unknown how it happens. Fans of extreme sports today can use a unique opportunity to ride on a real sand dune using skiing and snowboarding.
