Pacing

Takes into consideration the length of bus rides, flights, number of destinations in the number of days
           Moderately Strenuous

Pacing is usually robust, and half or more of days will be full and active, including some early hotel departures and possible evening activities. Some free time may be available for rest and rejuvination. Travel within the journey is significant and may include several long motorcoach transfers, three or more on-tour flights, and/or occasional travel via non-traditional means such as safari vehicles, Zodiac ship tenders, rickshaws/pedi-cabs, etc.

PACING:

  • This adventure is moderately-paced

  • In addition to a long international flight, your journey includes three internal flights and some coach transfers.
  • You will spend 2 nights in Seoul, 3 nights in Ulaanbaatar, and 3 nights in two different camps in the Gobi Gurvansaikhan National Park. From here you fly back to Ulaanbaatar for another full day of exploration and then, after a festive Farewell Dinner, you’ll fly overnight to Seoul and have a day room to relax in before a mid-afternoon flight home.

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENT:

  • This is a tour for active travelers.
  • Travelers should be able to walk unassisted for three miles each day and participate in approximately six hours of activities per day
  • Due to the number of stairwells on this adventure, this trip is not suitable for travelers using wheelchairs, walkers, or other mobility aids

    There can be a big temperature difference between day and night, so bring warmer clothes just in case.
