The Yol valley in Mongolia is quite beautiful tucked between rough craggy mountain gorges on both sides. You can walk amid small streams and enjoy your walk as you meet yaks and lazy horses grazing on your way along. If you are lucky you can...More
Part of my tour of the Gobi Desert was a visit to this area, also known as the Vultures Mouth. It boats a cool, refreshing canyon/creek environment, with about half the journey on horseback and the other half on foot. Also lots of intriguing wildlife....More
We stayed at Yol valley-Herdsmen Household Cooperative which was the best get camp we stayed at, not in terms of facilities but in terms of quaintness and service.
The area is lovely and well worth a visit. Great to see ice that has survived from...More
Stopped for a short walk here. There is a small museum with some information on wildlife at the gate. The walk is short, only around an hour total, the area is nice although very cold compared to rest of Gobi area. Horseriding is available although...More
Went on a cooling weather and enjoyed a nice walk down the valley. It came as a pleasant especially after the gobi desert. There’s a running river and some wild animals around. We were still able to discover a small area that had ice. It’s...More
We arrived at the Yol Valley in time to see the end of the Yak Festival and then, as we hiked, we also passed nomads on horseback and on motorcycles. The kids loved saying "hi" to us in English! There were huge vultures soaring around...More
The Mongolians that we were with refer to it as Yol Valley, it is wonderful for hiking . We choose to ride into the valley, hike and then walk out. Take water and make sure you have good walking shoes. The scenery is quite dramatic...More
Spot the eagle's nest! Hear the tales about the snow leopard nest. This valley is great for a relaxing walk. Ask your driver to pick you up at the other site. When water is high, you may have to do long jumps over the stream,...More

It's over 500km to the south. Why TA lists it as an "attraction in Ulaanbatar" escapes me. Nearest town is Dalandzadgad, in the Gobi desert. As it turned out, we DID drive from UB, because our flight was cancelled (they dug up the airstrip at Dalanzadgad, without having the correct materials on hand to fix it.) It took over 12 hours. Not a good place to have a quick side trip from UB, but nice as part of a multi day excursion to the Gobi.
