(visited by Artsmaa Gankhuyag)

25-Jun-2006 -- The third point that we have planned to find was 46N and 95E. From location 46N 96E, we went through the Gobi’s vast area and connected with the main road, which is in front of Olonbulag bag. We went with the main road, which was going toward Tugrug sumon and around sunset, we came close to the location 46N 95E. Then, we left the main road to look for the location with GPS and came really close the point. We got out of the car to look for the location with the GPS and when we find the point time was 22.10 hours in June 25th of 2006. We took the required pictures of the place just before the sunset. Finally, we took pictures of ourselves with the small board, which we put up and got ready to spend a night.

We put out two tents, had our dinner and slept after midnight. The Gobi’s sky was clear and had a lot of stars, which was great. Since there were many animals like spiders, we covered up the tents and slept.

In the early morning, we drove to Tugrug sumon after we had breakfast. It was the sixth day of our trip.

Our travel team consisted of the Honored artist of Mongolia Mr.Damchaa, Director of "Tergel-Tech" company Mr.Gankhuyag and Oyunbold, Erka, Tur, Dashkaa.
