Another wonder of Gobi
Desert in Mongolia is Three Beauties of Gobi, a massive rocky mountain. This
mountain has steep rock walls and a river flow through between the rock walls.
Length of Yol Valley is 8 km. The mountain gorge named after bearded vulture
which is called Yol in Mongolian. The valley is elevated 2800 meters above sea
level and covers area of 64 square km. Yol Valley forms a gorge that is deep
and narrow. The ice field reaches several meters thick by the end of winter and
it is several km long. In the past years, ice could be existed for a whole year
but the modern ice field tends to disappear by September due to global warming.
Although the sun shines a lot in this sight, the canyon remains dark and some
of the cliffs are 200 meters tall so in the bottom part of the river remains
nearly all year long covered by a thick layer of ice. This area has been main
attraction of tourists for many decades. However it is very wide at the
entrance, it narrows gradually into a remarkable gorge. When tourist walks
through in narrow valley, they greet each other and talk to each other.
