The Valley of sleeping volcanos


A popular place for hiking. The valley was formed by volcano eruptions. The traces of solidified lava go for 70 kilometers along the valley of the river Zhom-Bolok. A legend says that these are the remains of Gesar’s enemy’s palace that he burned down with a burning arrow. The photos taken here are truly breathtaking!
