On Location August 2007 – Mongolia 2

I had a fabulous time on my holiday in Mongolia with my Dad. The day after we arrived in Mongolia, we went on a five day Yak Trek. I thought that was a great trip even if I had to share a yurt (Mongolian tent) with my Dad. One morning, we looked out of the yurt to see wild horses. On the third day of the yak trek a wolf attacked a two year old horse in the night, so the next day we went to have a look. The vultures had nearly eaten it all and when we got close the vultures flew away. It was cool.

While in Mongolia, we flew on a new airline called Eznes. Eznes stands for easy fly. We went on Eznes to the Gobi desert. One of the things we did in the Gobi was to go to the ice valley. This is a place were there is loads of ice in a narrow gorge. I stood there is my short sleeved-shirt in the heat and still the ice didn’t melt.

In the Gobi, there was also a waterfall which was completely frozen. My Dad threw a stone up over the wall of ice. We did not hear the stone go into the water so we think that the top of the waterfall was frozen as well. When we were looking around, we saw an eagle fly up to its nest. The guide told us he thought the eagle must have babies. We looked hard and saw a baby.

In the Gobi, we went to a Horse festival. There was so much going on: a man lassoing a horse with a rope, a man on a horse trying to catch another horse with a hoop on the end of the pole, riding a horse and picking up a pole on the ground and a race for children from seven to eleven years old. The race was 16 kilometres long!

After the Gobi we went to Arburd Sands. This place was completely covered in sand. At Arburd Sands my Dad and I went camel riding which was really bumpy. On the way around the dunes, we were lucky to see another eagle in its nest with a baby.

Next we went to Ikh Nart, a nature reserve. We went out looking for animals with a ranger. We saw a female ibex with a baby, an Arglai sheep and a vulture which had a baby in the nest. When we got close to the nest, the mother flew off in fright and left the baby vulture in the nest. I have a picture of the baby. Also, the guide and I were lying down on the sand when vultures came circling above us. Those were the best things on my trip to Mongolia with my Dad.
