Start in Beijing and end in Saint Petersburg, the Trans Mongolian Discovery trip is a guided explorer trip that takes 21 days. You will be touring through Saint Petersburg, Lake Baikal, Veliky Novgorod and 6 other destinations in Mongolia, Russia and China. Trans Mongolian Discovery is a small group trip which will include accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please check the package includes section for more details.

Begin by walking the Great Wall of China. Then ride the rails through northern China, far across the vast expanses of the Gobi Desert and the Siberian steppe. Still farther on, we find a historic city where Islamic and Orthodox architecture stands side by side. And in the distance, we discover Russia’s two grandest cities.

“This is a fascinating journey through remarkably unspoiled countries. Every day provided a place of great beauty or interest. The small group gelled into a very happy gathering. We were lucky to have such a wonderful tour leader, who contributed so much at every level.”

“Just back from the Five Golden Stans trip. Great group of travellers and Anya was a fantastic guide. The trip was exciting, challenging, invigorating, educational and culturally different. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about a part of the world which is unknown to Westerners. Be prepared to experience wonderful culture, great food and the friendliest and most hospitable people. Previously, The Persian Caravan was my favorite journey, but the Five Golden Stans may just beat it! Well done Sundowners!”
