Yolyn am

Mongol ToursYolyn am (Lammergeier Valley)

Yolyn am is the narrow canyon of a river which flows through Mountain Zuunsaikhan (2815m), 62km northwest of Dalanzadgad town. The area, as part of the Gobi Desert, sees little precipitation. However, Yolyn Am is notable for a deep ice field. The gorge has sheer rock walls with a height of about 200m in the central part. At its narrowest, only two people can pass at a time. It has been protected since 1965.
