Chuluut River Canyon.


O
n our way to Tsetserleg, we broke journey to stretch our legs, return Mother Nature's call, and have a look at the Chuluut River Canyon. The canyon was really nothing much to look at especially if you compare it to the spectacular Grand Canyon.

Unlike the Grand Canyon which is composed of layers of sandstone, shale and limestone, the Chuluut River Canyon is a swatch through basalt rock which imparts the predominantly gray coloration.

The Chuluut River is famous for its rich fishing grounds and there are plenty of fish tours that come here. Of course, the waters in Mongolia are so pristine, I think every river and lake is teeming with fish!
