Day 1Tsagaan Suvarga (White stupa)

The scarp of Tsagaan Suvarga is located in Ulziit soum of Dundgovi province. It is interesting to see the sheer slope, facing east, which from a distance seems to be the ruins of the ancient city.

It is sheer slope and was an old seabed with sedimentary structure created by millions years and the different colors of the ground represent different times.
