The Yol Valley (Lammergeier's Gorge) offers a fabulous respite from the desert sun and heat. The deep gorge is sheltered from the sun by the steep cliffs soaring above the narrow stream that has cut through the rock. Vultures love to hang out at the...More

I have visited Yolyn am (“Vulture-eagle gore”) back in 2000 first time. Full of ice down the creek in July. This time in 2019 no trace of ice - unfortunately. Our local friends say last ice melted in June. Thus we did a half day...More

If you can do this in one strech (so only down and not up and down) it is interesting. Not so easy to find the start of walk. Use Wikilioc to find a track. In July we saw much ice in the valley.

Beautiful views and pleasant hike culminating in the river of ice. You can hike in or ride horses into the canyon. Look around for birds and other animals.

The Yol valley in Mongolia is quite beautiful tucked between rough craggy mountain gorges on both sides. You can walk amid small streams and enjoy your walk as you meet yaks and lazy horses grazing on your way along. If you are lucky you can...More

Great Valley, walk and spend the night nearby... Even it's possible to see ice, because sun does not enter to the thin Canyon ! It worth a visit

Part of my tour of the Gobi Desert was a visit to this area, also known as the Vultures Mouth. It boats a cool, refreshing canyon/creek environment, with about half the journey on horseback and the other half on foot. Also lots of intriguing wildlife....More

It's over 500km to the south. Why TA lists it as an "attraction in Ulaanbatar" escapes me. Nearest town is Dalandzadgad, in the Gobi desert. As it turned out, we DID drive from UB, because our flight was cancelled (they dug... More
