Spend some time in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve on the northern edge of the Gobi Desert. This remote reserve spans 66,000 hectares of grassland and semi-desert steppe where one of the last remaining populations of argali sheep can be found. This rugged terrain is also home to a wealth of other wildlife from Mongolian fox to Siberian ibex, gazelle, wolf and many raptors.
The word Gobi in Mongolian means desert. The Gobi is bounded by the Altai mountains and the grasslands and steppes of Mongolia on the north, by the Tibetan Plateau to the southwest, and by the North China Plain to the southwest. Unlike the Sahara there are few sand dunes; rather you'll find large barren expenses of gravel plains and rocky outcrop.
