TSAGAAN SUVARGA (WHITE STUPA)

The scarp of Tsagaan Suvarga is located in the south west of the Dundgobi province. It is a sheer slope that was an ancient seabed that featured a sedimentary structure that was created over millions of years. It is interesting to see this slope because it faces eastward towards the sun, and from a distance it appears to be the ruins of an ancient city.



That is why it was called the “White stupa”. Because it faces eastward, when there are storms it is common for animals to fall off and die. This formation is over 60m tall at its highest point and continues for an impressive length of 400m. The stupa rises to the sky at an angle of 90 degrees.  After a large rain the torrent of water that flows down the stupa looks like a massive waterfall.


There are 2 famous caves, that lie 7 km to the east of the white stupa, they are called Khevtee Bosoo agui (Lie and Stand Cave). They are titled “lie and stand caves” because some parts of the cave are very small so you can only crawl, but other areas are very large so you are able to stand up.
