Photo Gallery

The fresh, sparsely vegetated lava flow filling this valley originated from Khorog (Horog) cinder cone (center). The cone is part of the Taryatu-Chulutu volcanic field in north-central Mongolia about 250 km west of Ulaanbaatar. The volcanic field contains six Holocene cinder cones along the Sumein and Gichgeniyn river valleys at the western end of the volcanic field. The lava flow from Khorog was radiocarbon dated at about 4930 years ago and dammed the Chulutu River, forming Lake Terkhin-Tsagan-Nur.
