(visited by Artsmaa Gankhuyag)

24-Jul-2011 -- Our trip team finished installation work in Bogd soum and then we set out to Baruunbayanulaan soum in the early morning. It was a warm, sunny day and it was not raining. There was a point on our way, so we decided to visit it. This are has a lot of beautiful landscape: high majestic mountains, beautiful dunes, steppe, swamps. The most special feature was the point which we are searching and which is located on the west side of the famous mountain Bogd mountain. We were so proud to see the top of this mountain from Guchin-Us soum`s center, Ovorkhangai province 2 days ago from approximately 100 km. It was so exciting that we passed by this mountain.

We reached the point at 12:00 o`clock. The point located near the one small river and around the small hill in the steppe. We took photographs and then marked the point. Our team had 3 members. Gankhuyag, Khishigbayar, Narangerel.
