On this four day expedition you’ll experience life in the desert, with two days of hiking and one night of camping in the Tengger Desert region of the Alashan Plateau, adjacent to the huge Gobi Desert. We’ll visit desert lakes and oases, traveling through the dunes by foot, by jeep, and by camel! On the last day of the trip we’ll visit the Western Xia Imperial Tombs, taking a look at the distinctive pyramid-shaped burial mounds.
Changed the date: on March 22 the government changed the Labour Day holiday dates. We’re still running this trip as planned, but if you’re working in Beijing you’ll need to check about getting time off. We have added a separate trip from May 1–4, which matches the holiday dates exactly.
