Trek through Yolyn Am, a gorge in the Gurvan Saikhan mountains known for its ice field that persists for most of the year. The valley enjoys protection as part of a national park, and also lies within the Gobi desert. Hiking through the narrow gorge, you can admire the dramatic landscape made up of towering cliffs and accentuated by the ice sheets, reaching a depth of several yards depending on the time of year. A variety of wildlife calls the valley home, including eagles, Lammergeier vultures, and the adorable pika. Yolyn Am is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • It is amazing to see ice sheet deep in the gorge. The walk is pretty manageable as mostly flat terrain. However, the ice sheet can be slippery so have to be really careful. Can see the real pikachu...

  • Upland wild park dominated by the gorge with its superb wildlife. Transport is needed to get here from the nearest town of from your Tourist Ger Camp. Its a worthwhile trip. Wildlife includes...

  • Incredible, isolating and well worth the trip (if you're in Mongolia). Hear animals scurry across the rocks, traverse creeks and riverbeds and scamper over rocks along this lovely spot to hike in Mongolia.
  • Pog. Helped with the seneca. Ice in the veins. Looks a bit chilly, maybe pack some hot coals for the Ryanair flight. Can't see a bnb nearby either, the horse might become the tent :/
