This place is renowned for the discovery of the first dinosaur eggs in the world. See Flaming Cliffs and hike through the cliffs if you want. In addition, there is a grove of saxual trees located 5 km from the cliffs. The Saxual tree grows only in Central Asian semi-desert. The tree is always green even in very dry summer as it has long roots. Arrive back the Three Camel Lodge, relax and enjoy the beauty of the Gobi from an open terrace.

Day 4: Hiking in Eagle Valley and explore rock drawings

Eagle Valley is one of the most beautiful valleys in the Gobi Gurvan Saihan Mountain/National Park. You may find pieces of ice in shadowy areas of the valley's steep canyon even in hot summer. People are always amazed when they see this beautiful green valley in the Gobi desert. If you are there at the right time, you will have a chance to see wild animals such as ibex, mountain sheep, and deer. In the morning, when upper parts of the canyon accept sunlight and when the sun goes down in the evening, golden eagles can be seen flying from their nests. The valley was named after these birds. There you will hike 4-5 km into the depths of the valley. Instead of hiking, you can hire a camel or a horse.
