For those who seek pure adventure, have we got the trip for you! Travel Factor proudly presents EXPEDITION Mongolia, a 9-day trip to the East Asian country that beckons with its vast, rugged expanses and nomadic culture. We'll start the trip at Ulaabaatar, the Mongolian capital and ease you into the nation's quirky customs and practices. The next 6 days will be spent on the road as we roam around the Gobi Desert, where exciting experiences await!

We'll spend a week seeking rock formations, mountains and ice valleys as we sleep with nomad families and tents.
