Gobi Steppe: The 2021 Gobi Desert Steppe

A journey through the steppe of the Mongolian lands, the last truly uncontaminated territory. Known as “the land of blue sky”-with 278 days of sunshine a year- it guarantees an unparalleled life experience, a sense of freedom that fills the gaze, surrounded by a vastness, without human traces, at the loss of ‘eye. We will cross the Gobi area, a semi-arid steppe with sand dunes and gigantic rock formations. We will be guests of the Mongolian nomadic tribes, whose equestrian tradition is a living cultural heritage. Even today, small Mongolian horses live almost in the wild, in herds led by a stallion who guides them in search of food. The journey that everyone should  do at the least onche in their life  …
