Default Camels for hire

You can rent a camel to go around the Singing Hill sand dunes in the Gobi Desert, Gansu Province, China for $100RMB. The whole trip tkes about 40 minutes.

Do you have to pay for the optional insurance coverage?

Medical insurance is included in the tour package. Camel riding is optional for $100 RMB per person. It is a pretty safe ride as you are guided by handlers.

I see piercing isn't just for us humans anymore. (I do wonder if it's necessary for the animals - I don't recall seeing any piercings like that in the Middle East)

Nose piercing is pretty common for animals besides camels. They also apply it to water buffaloes, at least in China.

What do you mean it is not for human? I see plenty guys and girls here doing it not only for noses, but other body parts as well.

Great photos, but I will take a pass on riding a camel, as I have heard you can get motion sickness.
