Mongolian Narrative

English version

Several of us, Murun (see picture) Baatar (Mongolian), Kasia, Magda (Poland), had traveled through countryside including center section of Mongolia, west regions from 2 September, 2009 to 14 October, 2009 for about 40 days when we reached this coordinate.

This coordinate is situated at the mountain range named with “Dalan” , north-east about 22 km distance from the Bayantooroi village of the Gobi-Altai province. You can see the mountain named “Mother” in west side from this point which is worshiped by local people. The mountain is formed of various odd formations of the granite rocks. Zakhuin gobi is one of the famous 33 mountains of Mongolia. There are a lot of rare animals in the Gobi such as: wild camel (Camelus ferus), saiga (Saiga tatarica), Gobi bear, Blacktail (Gazella subgutturosa) etc.

Also, there are not only mammal animals besides other animals and a lot of birds including Khulan (Podoces hendersoni), Imperial Eagle (Aquila heliacal), Steppe eagle (Aquila), hawk, falcons; (multifarious Falco pelegrinoides, Falco cherrug, Falco tinnunculus, Falco peregrines), harrier, buzzard, birds of prey; (Buteo lagopus, Butoe rufinus, Buteo buteo) and vulture (Aegypius monachus).

Бидны хэдэн хүн Мөрөн (зурган дээр байгаа нь), Баатар(Монгол), Kasia, Magda (Poland) 2009 оны 9-р сарын 2-с 10-р саырн 14 хүртэл Монгол Улсын төв болон баруун хязгаараар дөч гаран хоног аялах замдаа миний бие тус солбицлолыг олж тогтоосон болно.

Тус солбицлол нь Говь-Алтай аймгын Баян тоорой тосгоноос зүүн хойд зүгт 22 орчим км-н зайд Далангийн нурууний урд талд оршдог. Тус цэгээс баруун тийш нь нутгийн ардын шүтээнтэй “ ЭЭЖ” хэмээх хайрхан харагдана. Тухайн хайрхан нь нар, салхи, улиралын усны үйлчилгээний үрд дүнд үүссэн янз бүрийн сонин хэлбэртэй боржин чулуунаас тогтсон байсан.Захуйн говь нь Монголын алдарт 33-н говийн нэг билээ.

Тус говьд дэлхийд ховордсон хавтгай (Camelus ferus), бөхөн (Saiga tatarica), мазаалай (Gobi bear), хар сүүлт (Gazella subgutturosa) гэх мэт хөхтөн амьдатаас гадна хулан жороо (Podoces hendersoni), хан бүргэд (Aquila heliacal), талын бүргэд (Aquila rapax), элдэв төрлийн харцагаболон шонхрууд (Falco pelegrinoides, Falco cherrug, Falco tinnunculus, Falco peregrines), сар шувуунууд (Buteo lagopus, Butoe rufinus, Buteo buteo), тас (Aegypius monachus) зэрэг шувууд элбэг байдаг.
