This is another granite rock formation in the middle of the dusty plains. In the 19th century, two revered monks lived here in gers - remnants of their rock drawings can be found in the area. The rocks are worshipped by locals who sometimes make pilgrimages here. Naturally, there is a legend that Chinggis Khaan stayed at the rocks.

Five kilometres away, the highest peak in the area, Baga Gazrin Uui (1768m), will take about five hours to climb. The mountain also contains a cave with an underground lake. The mineral water springs and trees in the region make it a great spot to camp, and there are plenty of rocky hills, topped by ovoo (sacred pyramid-shaped collections of stone and wood), to explore.
