  • Mongolian language is fairly complicated, so Am Jolyn translated as "Honeydew" jagnjatnika or bearded vulture, or a vulture or Eagle. Clearly, once the Gorge nest of any bird mentioned above, but here's what-will remain secret. I, anyway, saw no one. On the bottom of the Gorge runs a tiny rivulet, but as soon as it begins to drizzle rain, this streamlet is increased, because the water is not absorbed. In the spring, I think, a small river turns into the Creek, collecting the melting snow on the slopes. I passed no less than 5 km, but the glacier never saw. Halfway met a group of Frenchmen with a local guide, asked how long still to go before the end of the Gorge, I was told that another 5 kilometers. I didn't believe it, continuing on his way. At some point, the Gorge narrows to a narrow cleft meter 2-3 wide, then expands and rocky breed is replaced by meadows, if you find yourself in another dimension. And dokovyljav not until the end of the Gorge, I still turned back. In the Gorge saw Jacob, who in Mongolia are called sarlykami.

  • Wolin am is a picturesque valley with Canyon, which is located in a national park near the town of Dalatzadgad, where a few hours can be reached by car in the heat take a walk in the cool Canyon, enjoy picturesque rocks, hanging above a small, almost frozen Flamingo Grand, covered with bluish ice. Silence, chugging water, singing birds and huge animals thundering herd yaks, which see for the first time.
