The Gobi Desert (Mongolian: Говь, Govi, Chinese: 戈壁, Pinyin: Gēbì) is a large semiarid desert in Mongolia and China. It is the second largest desert in the world, with an area of 500,000 square miles. It is also the coldest desert in the world.

Historically, the Gobi was the site of many important cities on the Silk Road, as well as being the core of the great Mongol Empire.
