TOP TRIP III - DORNOD STEPPE

Overview

DORNOD MONGOL STEPPE: Mongolia's most vast steppe is called the Menen steppe, it is located in the Dornod province, 60 km to the west of Buir lake, it is 600m above sea level. This is one of the biggest steppes in the world, it is unique because it has largely remained undeveloped. This vast steppe continues all the way till the east side of Mongolia, to Dariganga volcano.

The Steppe zone stretches to Khalkha river in the north, it lies east of the Khyangan mountain range. The steppe is divided into 2 main parts: the north side of Kherlen, and the south side of Tamsag. The lowest point of this steppe in Mongolia lies in the northern area of the Kherlen. Mongolian famous poet B.Yavuukhulan described this steppe as: “Seeing the sunrise from the distance of lassoing the horse is amazing” (it means that because Mongolian people lasso the horse from very close, looking the sunrise from very close is more amazing.)
