Day 3

Badan desert

Hearthy breakfast (based also on sheep) as you need your strengths, and lunch will be extremely light. Every one of you will be “escorted “ by two camels, that can also carry light luggage along the way. If you are tired, you can hope on them until you feel like to walk again. We start with high sun (around 11am) as temperature can be severe. Today is a 15km journey to Lake Nuretu, the most beautiful lake in the Badain Jaran desert

Day 4

Badan desert

It will be a 15-km hike and camel ride from Lake Nuretu to Badain Jaran desert temple. This Buddhist Temple was built in 1868 on the lake shore behind a huge dune, more similar to a volcan caldera.The legend said that there is a well close to the temple where water starts pouring out when the monks chant around it. We will have the chance to witness this very unusual phenomenon.

Day 5

Badan desert

today you will approach – and climb – Bilutu, that stands over 600mt (1,620mt over sea level) – highest dune in Asia, third of the planet, some says highest stable dune in the world. Camels don’t really like climbing dunes so this one is on you. A short sea of dunes divides you from the next valley and its lake – and your rest.
