Today, we finish the series about Mongolia on my blog.
If you like my photo-impressions – I’m very happy. 🙂
If you started to think about visiting Mongolia – I’m even more happy. 😉
I think, Mongolia is still one of these “unspoiled” countries, where tourists/travelers can enjoy the emptiness. So, it’s better to visit Mongolia earlier than later, before it’ll become a more popular destination.
I’d like to visit Mongolia once more, because there are many interesting places what I had to skip during my first trip. And maybe, I’ll change my opinion, that the Gobi desert is the most beautiful part of Mongolia. 😉
After one day on the Gobi desert, it came to my mind, that it would be so easy to make an album called “The skies of Mongolia”. I was really impressed by the Gobi desert, i.e., how many different places belong to it (sand dunes, mountains), or the variety of animals and plants I saw them. All stunning landscapes together with blue skies, gentle clouds, rainbows etc. made me fall in love with Gobi! 🙂
Today, I’m showing you a cute animal that I met in the Eagle Valley (see post from 23.08).
This small mammal, with big rounded ears, is called pika. Sometimes, people call it as “whistling hare”, because it looks a bit like a rabbit or a hare (well, a bit… maybe… 😉 ), and it makes an extra funny noise – kind of whistling or calling “peee, peee”.
If you are curios, what does the call sound like – check e.g., on YouTube (I smile each time while hearing it).
I’m sure, everyone brings some “images” from trips; these kind of pictures that stay in our head forever.
I have a few of these kind of images from Mongolia. One of them, is similar to today’s picture from my blog – wild horses on the Gobi desert. 🙂
That’s also my first impression from the Gobi desert. 🙂
I hope, you like this picture. 🙂
Ger (Yurt) is a portable round tent and a traditional nomadic house.
In today’s picture, you see two gers located in the Gobi desert.
In Mongolia, it’s possible to spend a night in a ger, and I can really recommend it as a unique experience! Especially, when you’re in the Gobi desert, staying overnight in a ger is a must! 🙂
It’s even possible to spend a night in a ger in Ulaanbataar, just the surrounding view will be different. 😉
