This dry, dusty town on the Trans-Mongolian rail line is an inexpensive base for hardy, independent types to see the Gobi Desert (most tour groups prefer Dalanzadgad as an entry point into the Gobi). Hire a Jeep and guide to take you to the interesting rock formations of Baga Bogd (a dry, mountainous region) and Burdene Bulag (the country's largest sand dunes). Day trips on desert camels can also be organized in town. 260 mi/420 km southeast of Ulaabaantar.
