Climbing a sand dune sounds like a walk in the park. It isn't. I'm in my mid-fifties and reasonably active; I ended up clinging to what felt like a sheer wall of sand moving ten paces at a time and exhausted. Bear in mind that...More

Sorry I posted my question before proofing. I meant I do not plan to stay that long in Mongolia. I would like to limit it to 8 days or less but be able to see the important sights. Thank you.
