Dalanzadgad is the capital of Umnugobi (South gobi) province sitting in the foothills of Gurvansaikhan mountains. Over the years it’s growing due to its natural resources and and the tourist attractions in the surrounding area. South Gobi area offers a variety of explorations for every adventure seeking person. Here you can find reasonable hotels with local restaurants and bars, it’s a great place to recharge before you set off to explore the region's big draws. Although somewhat sprawling, it is easy to feel the Gobi encroaching upon you. Walk any direction for about 20 minutes and you are in the desert. Gurvansakihan mountain range peers over the town from the west, and can act as a guide if you lose your bearings. Although there is not much to do in Dalanzadgad itself, it is the starting point for the three main tourist attractions in the Gobi: Yoliin Am (Vulture's Mouth), Khongriin Els (Singing Dunes), and Bayanzag (Flaming Cliffs).
