Dundgobi - Rock climbing in the Gobi Desert

Sport recently implemented in Mongolia by Wind of Mongolia in partnership with the local NGO Ger to Ger and the National Special Rescue Unit. Rock climbing is a new way to explore the country.

Three sites have been opened, offering the same kind of climbing on old granite, but in three different landscapes.
The ways are from 7 to 50 meters long, with technical levels from 4 to 6, with cracks, chips, and overhangs.
Various itineraries, to have fun, all accessible from the top.

In our travels, rock climbing is just another way to discover Mongolia, the nomadic way of life, the culture.
Climbing up to theses rocks will offer you much more than the pleasure of the sport: a unique panorama of amazing landscapes of the Gobi desert or the endless steppe…
