Yol Valley is a really cool spot that you wouldn't imagine to see in semi-arid desert. It is very picturesque and breathtaking. Juniper and other wild flowers cover the hillsides, which add more beauty to the valley as well as an aroma. It is also fun to see Mongolian pikas in the valley, and it is also lucky to see... More

This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever hiked. Be ready to have wet shoes, though, as there is a lot of stream hopping.

I visited the Yol Valley as part of Gobi tour during summer. The good experience of this tour comes from visiting 3 different environs or sceneries or experiences, which put one between great heights depicting the basic definition of valley. The first encounter is to be awed by the sheer heights of between canyons and its varying width at different... More

Beautiful country side where you can hike along the river bed to a surviving piece of frozen ice - in the desert no less.

Well, it is a lot bigger than oasis :) - a lush valley, surrounded by two mountain ranges. There is a small river which flows into a gorge. During winter the ice fills in the gorge almost completely and it is still possible to see the meting ice by the end of July. There is a nice waterfall and very... More

This is a very long way from Ulaan Baatar. The roads to here and trip are AWFUL. There are pikas (small rodents) everywhere, which was a positive. We flew halfway, saving a 10 hour drive. The drive from where we landed to this place was about 8 hours of bone jarring torture. IMHO (and coming from the USA with its... More

This place is amazing and it's even possible to go camping here. Beware though there are rats and wild animals in some areas so make sure it's safe from those.

this is not an attraction in UB, it is not even close to UB. This needs to be moved to another section.

Take your time to explore and take it all in. Always better if your in good company. Embrace (and prepare for) the differences that this places holds. The ice was a cool surprise.
