Location: 1800 km west of Ulaanbaatar in the Tsengel soum of Bayan – Ulgii province.
Features: Altai Tavan Bogd mountain of the Altai mountain Range is located in the western edge of Mongolia and is the highest peak in the country. Mongolians call it “the roof of the country”. Altai Tavan Bogd has five high peaks (Tavan means five in Mongolian), which have three large interconnected glaciers. The largest is the Potanin Glacier, which is 14 km long. This area’s climate is extremely unpredictable. You may observe four seasons in one day: the sun will shine, but then it may snow or rain. In 1996, this area officially became protected Natural Park. Since 2012, the mountain range has been nationally sacred and the Mongolian president visits the mountain for worship each year.
