The Gobi Desert is home to large quantity of exotic wildlife. Among these, the two humped Bactrian camels are some of the most majestic and sturdiest animals. In the past, they were used by traders in large numbers to transfer goods along the ancient Silk Road. You can relive the glory of past days from atop the camels in the vastness of Gobi.
