I am very satisfied! There were some changes in the context of the coronavirus, but the guide was very kind and finally good friends. It was a good memory. Thank you!

It is quite a long drive due to the traffic in Ulan Bator, but the ride with the camels and the dunes are beautiful, as well as the simple but tasty lunch.

The traveling time of the car was long, but it was fun with a very friendly guide. This time, I would like to go to a hotel instead of a day trip.
