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.
