Location: Yol valley is located 56 km from Dalanzadgad city.
Features: It is the deep, narrow mountain gorge (valley) in Gobi Gurvan Saikhan Mountain. This gorge is 2800m above sea level, covers about 64 sq km area, about 40 km long and up to 200 meters high. The gorge is named after the Lammergeier, which is called Yol in Mongolia or well known as a White Bearded Vulture in the World. Yol is the very rare bird and lives only in Central Asia, high in 1500-3000 meters, and nests at least 2000m above sea level. The valley blocked from sunlight and contains thick ice layers throughout the year, but, recently, because of global warming ice melts down in late summer.
