Detailed itinerary

Day1. Yol Valley – horse ride, natural museum and Bayanzag – hiking

In the morning, we will pick you up from your accommodation and transfer to the airport. After you arrived Dalanzadgad, our local guide and driver will pick you up and drive to Yol Valley (60 km). Yol means vulture in Mongolian and the valley begins from Zuun Saikhan Mountain, a branch of the Gurvan Saikhan Mountain range, and stretches over 10 km. The narrowest part, only 3 or 4 person can pass in same time, of the valley is completely shaded from the direct sun shine by high cliff walls. Also, the valley is famous for the fact that there is ice created in winter by small stream of the valley present there even during the hot summer months until end of Jul. The beauty of the valley, combined with the smell of juniper creates an atmosphere of awe and wonder – this is an experience not to be missed! There we will ride horse through the valley. An hour hiking is also a nice activity there if you not like horse ride. As well, we visit to local natural museum of Gurvan Saikhan National Park. Then we will drive to Bayanzag (100 km). Bayanzag means saxual forest in English and area of red cliffs “Bayanzag” which have been formed from the erosion of the water and wind over many millions of years. A lot of dinosaurs’ findings such as Protoceratops & dinosaur’ eggs have been found there in first time. American zoologist Roy Chapman Andrews discovered this place and named as Flaming Cliffs. The red colored cliffs themselves are very imposing from a distance, and are particularly fiery in the light of the setting sun. It is an interesting place to wander about to get a closer look at one of the world’s most famous paleontologist sites. In the evening we will walk around the site. Overnight there.
