Join one of Nomadic Expeditions' most exclusive trips and explore Tibet and Mongolia, the "Roof of the World" and the "Land of Blue Sky." These fascinating countries, inaccessible to the world's travelers until only recently, share a direct spiritual bond through their Buddhist heritage, and reward visitors with a wealth of artistic and cultural riches, unforgettable vistas, and warm hospitality.

The journey begins in Beijing with a tour of the Forbidden City, the legendary Imperial Palace dating back to the Ming Dynasty of the 15th century. Continuing with a flight to Lhasa, one of the world's most spiritual and breathtakingly scenic cities, explore splendid palaces and Buddhist monasteries, including historic Samye, built in the 8th century as the first monastery in Tibet.

The adventure continues in Mongolia, where the "Singing Sands" and Flaming Cliffs of the Gobi Desert await. Hike through Yol Valley National Park, an area rich in unusual flora and fauna, explore the towering sand dunes of Hongoryn Els, and spend an afternoon at the Flaming Cliffs, where the first nest of dinosaur eggs was unearthed in 1923.

Trip Highlights:
    Experience the fascinating cultural highlights of Tibet and Mongolia
