With its ancient sea bottom “Flaming Cliffs”; where discovered the site of Mongolian most important paleontological findings of last century. It was here, in 1923, that Roy Chapman Andrews and his expedition team from the American Museum of Natural History discovered the first nest of dinosaur eggs the world had ever seen.
Paleontologists from the world over continue to uncover fossils at this rich site and valleys; towering singing sand dunes of Khongor, where travelers can enjoy and explore by Mongolian Two-humped Bactrian Camels. Hike around Vulture Valley, mountain streams create ice formations that sometimes persist till the July.
Here in the foothills of the Gobi Altai Mountains, travelers will discover habitat for vulture-like Lammergeiers, Argali-mountain sheep, Ibex, Eagle and wild ass. In Mongolian south part travelers take a star watching tour falling stars in the Desert and early in the morning can be watch how rises the sun in Gobi. It is great experience and dream to discover under the clear sky - wide steppe.
This is another granite rock formation in the middle of the dusty plains. In the 19th century, two revered monks lived here in gers - remnants of their rock drawings can be found in the area. The rocks are worshipped by locals who sometimes make pilgrimages here.
Naturally, there is a legend that Chinggis Khaan stayed at the rocks.
Five kilometers away, the highest peak in the area, Baga Gazrin Uui (1768m), will take about five hours to climb.
The mountain also contains a cave with an underground lake. The mineral water springs and trees in the region make it a great spot to camp, and there are plenty of rocky hills, topped by ovoo (sacred pyramid-shaped collections of stone and wood), to explore.
This is Mongolian largest sand dune reaching a height of 800-meter in some highest areas. The sand dunes in Sevrei sum, South Gobi aimag, are called Khongoryn Els. These dunes are 20 km wide and 100 km long. The Khongoryn River flows along the sand dunes and gives birth to oases.
The sand dune change the color with each hour of one day, from yellow to silver to rise colored at dawn / sundown. This dune is considered one of the biggest dunes with it is length of 180 km and width of 3-5 km.
The dunes make sound like plane engine in a windy day so it has been named as “Sound Dunes”.
With a surface area of 4100 square kilometers, stretches over 100 kilometers and includes the strictly protected zone and it is a end of Altai mountain range Three Beauty Mountains are three rocky hills, the highest of which is 2815meter above the sea level. The vulture valley a protected site in 1965, is 62 kilometers north-west of Dalanzadgad, in the centre of South Gobi aimag very wide entrance, it narrows gradually into a remarkable gorge. A spring two or three kilometers long winds its way through the defile and in July, freezing into a thick corridor of ice that stretches along a considerable distance. Following the canyon to the high rock walls has breathtaking dramatic scenery, and no doubt is one of the most beautiful places in the country.
One of the famous places is Bayanzag, bottom of Ancient Sea which excited 60-70 million years ago where a lot of Palentological findings have been discovered. This is world known as “Flaming Cliffs” so named by Roy Andrew Chapman American explorer, who had visited Mongolia in 1920.
During the 2 years he searched through the Mongolian Gobi Desert & he found dinosaur fossils from Bayanzag, Nemekht. His group brought palentological findings on 70 camels it was like long caravan. Chapman presented Mongolia one large skeleton on show in the Ulaanbaatar Natural History Museum. He found 10 kinds of dinosaurs 8 were found from Mongolia. But also South Gobi has an oasis and most beautiful mountains Nemegt, Altan mountains and wide steppes and valleys with exotic wild animals like Asian wild ass, black tailed gazelle, and steppe wolf.
The Gobi bears which very rare animal can be seen in this area. This is one most beautiful place among the 33 Gobies of Mongolia where travelers can see pre-historical rock paintings, caves where monks have made meditations and ruins of ancient temples and villages
