Valley
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.

  • 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.
