(visited by Artsmaa Gankhuyag)

26-Jul-2011 -- Today is our trip`s 7th day. We moved on from Shinejinst soum to Erdene soum in the morning. We were passing through Bayan-Undur soum where we had lunch. We asked a local man for a shortcut because we wanted to reach our destination quickly. This place is part of Altai and has many rocky ravines and canyons.

We saw many beautiful natural places during the trip. One of these places was a big cave. We knew that it was a local sacred cave when we saw "khadag" - plate for offerings and incense in the cave. Afterwards, we asked local people about the cave. They said that it was a place to honor "Khairkhan Agui".

Our trip team had Gankhuyag, Khishigbayar, Narangerel.
