Tours Short Tours Baga Gazariin Chuluu

Price: 135 USD per person per day ( 3 Days )

Baga Gazariin Chuluu is a range of granite hills stretching 10 kilometers wide and 15 kilometers along the desert steppe of the Dundgovi province. With an elevation ranging from 1450 to 1750 meters above sea level, this rock mass features the Tahilgat Mountain, reaching 1758 meters in the northwest section of the hills. Wild sheep, ibex, and marmot run throughout the crags and crevices. Also, you will find ruins of an ancient stone temple, a 20-meter-long cave, petroglyphs, and a ger-shaped stone known as Ger Chuluu. According to scientists, the 64 tombs and tumuli in the area are credited to the Xiongnu.

During the drive, we will see landscapes morphing from forested steppe into the dry desert. We will stop for lunch at a local inn and eat a traditional Mongolian meal. By late afternoon, we will reach Baga Gazariin Chuluu, just in time to see the sun setting between mountain peaks.
