Yolyn Am, Dalanzadgad

4.4
#3 of 23 in Parks in Mongolia
Trek through Yolyn Am, a gorge in the Gurvan Saikhan mountains known for its ice field that persists for most of the year. The valley enjoys protection as part of a national park, and also lies within the Gobi desert. Hiking through the narrow gorge, you can admire the dramatic landscape made up of towering cliffs and accentuated by the ice sheets, reaching a depth of several yards depending on the time of year. A variety of wildlife calls the valley home, including eagles, Lammergeier vultures, and the adorable pika. Yolyn Am is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Dalanzadgad Edition.

  • The Mongolians that we were with refer to it as Yol Valley, it is wonderful for hiking . We choose to ride into the valley, hike and then walk out. Take water and make sure you have good walking shoes...  more »
  • Impressive but difficult to access, you should go with guide. I was fortunate to share the guide with people there and it came out pretty cheap, it is best to look for it in the zone, a shared taxi.
