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.)
