It's an UNESCO site, vast grassland & faraway mountain ranges with lots of horses, goats & cattle for company. We stayed at the Orkhon Ger Camp just a kilometer from the waterfall.

The earth was cracked by vulcanic activity and created a canyon where a river falls into as a big waterfall. If you like you can have a swim at the waterhole of the waterfall. To get down you have to walk to the right. Just...More
