Baga Gazariin Chuluu is located in Delgertsogt soum, Dundgovi province. Surrounded by vast steppe, this granite filled area covers about 300 square km.

And there is a ruin of a temple called Lovonchambyn Monastery inside the canyon. One km away from the Sudut Pass, you can explore Jargalant Cave. The cave is 18m long and you can walk inside the half of the length but have to crawl during the other half. Now, one km to the west of the Sudut Pass, Nudnii Spring or Eye Spring can be found. The spring flows under a hole that is 50cm deep and 7cm wide. Use dipper to scoop some mineral water and wash your eyes to heal sores.
