THE GOBI DESERT

Description

The Gobi desert, one of the five largest deserts on earth, spans from the northern part of China up into southern Mongolia. Not many people knew about Mongolian Gobi before American Museum of Natural History crew stepped into Mongolian Gobi. They discovered the first scientifically recognized dinosaur egg fossils in 1923 and brought the world’s attention to the Mongolian Gobi during the first half of 20th century. These days the Gobi is still a focal point and its astonishing natural beauty and exotic wild life attracts everyone’s attention. The Gobi, at the end of great Altai mountain range, is now home to last remaining two humped wild camels, newly introduced yaks, small population of Gobi bear, bearded vulture, Mongolian wild ass and snow leopard. There are also exotic natural formations as ice-filled gorges, flaming cliff where the first dinosaur egg fossils were found, and a great sand dune known as Singing Sand Dune. The vast open steppe of the Gobi that stretches for miles and miles and is waiting for you to print your footstep on it.
