14-Jul-2006 -- Trip for locating N48-E96 and N48-E95
Three families, Damiran, Gansukh and Dashnym, left Ulaanbaatar for trip to locate N48-E94, N48-E95, and N48-E96. The group has spent two days on the road to find location N48-E96 and went total of 1,256 kilometers. From Uliastai, we went around 120 kilometers using GPS (Garmin GPS V) GoTo Mode and find the location. On the way, we went to by wrong road and went around ten kilometers. We found the location by walking with the GPS. Everyone was exited and we took pictures. Also, we took the pictures from north, east, south and west. The location was in plain and between mountains, which is about 500 meters from Erdene Khairkhanii road. For the next people visiting this location, we are advising you to go with the main road.
The next location was N48-E95 and we went around 154 kilometers from the location N48-E96. We went about 65 kilometers on the local road and rest with GPS GoTo Mode without a road. We were going to the right direction and we stopped at .01 and get out of the car. We were walking around the car and could not make it 00. Then, we decided to move the car and 00 location was right beneath the car. From this location, we took the pictures from north, east, south and west and we attached the pictures with this report. This location was also located in plain and between the mountains. From there, Ikh Khairkhan, which is used to be named as Ikh Bayan Airag, was around three kilometers. When we went to the Ikh Khairkhan, there was an interesting cave. We went to the cave and went about 50 meters and came back. In the cave, further we go it was hard to breathe. In other word, if we go far enough, it gets airless. If anyone would like to visit this location, we recommend you to go to the cave.
As for the location N48-E94, we could not go there because of lack of time.
