Khermen Tsav Canyon in Gobi desert Umnugobi


Khermen Tsav (Wall Fissure) holds more of a paleontological value as the first dinosaur skeleton discovered in Mongolia was found from here. Scientists suggest 200 million years ago, this place was bottom of the ocean and throughout history a lot of different types of species other than dinosaurs inhabited the area and fossils from those mammals, birds and aquatic life have been found too.

But do not mistake, the landscape itself is not to be sniffed at. The view is spectacular to gaze at and these canyons made of red mud rocks are visually just as valuable as what it holds underneath it.
