When you are planning your Mongolian tour, be sure to add Yol Valley. It is a unique formation of hills and mountains that other parts of Mongolia don't quite represent as well. I came here in October, when all the grasses and other vegetation were dry and withered. My tour guide said that the best time is in the spring,... More

What a great luck I could travel there, even just briefly! I loved the beauty of this valley. Cannot forget its beauty and definitely want to come back there, to explore more and with more time!

Using Nomadic Expeditions the 3 of us traveled to Yol Valley after spending a few days at the Three Camel Lodge in the Gobi. As a hiker and mountain climber, I enjoyed the scenery and walk as it was very serene. There isn't a lot of wildlife that you can see (you can be assured animals see you though). It... More

This place is very nice and getting there and away is beautiful. It is up high in the park and well worth the trip to get there. Spend the time to get out and hike around bit.

It is not a must see but is very nice. Walk along the valley and try to spot some vultures! It is a place for good piuctures.

We really enjoyed our leisurely stroll through this valley. We saw lots of birds, pika and gerbil. The wild flowers are incredible. You must look UP and DOWN!

In mid summer, theres no more ice (not s surprise). Plenty of flowers along the way and a long hike. Terrian is not tough but nothing very amazing. Its a pleasant place to have a walk.

Our tour included a day treking/hiking through the Yol Valley. It offered everything to each of people in our small group, rivers, flowers, small animals, beautiful scenery and for the novice trekker/hiker a real pleasure. From start to finish - approximately 5 hours - WELL worth the time and the canyon was absolutely gorgeous!

It's part of our tour to be here..a must do! It's august so there's no glacier or ice along the valley but a very very nice hike along the stream with flowers and a lot of hamster like creatures. It's a long long way if you want to hike to the other side of the valley, and make sure you... More
