Olgii, Mongolia

Olgii is overshadowed by the hulking and sinewy massifs of the great Altai. They dominate the horizon all around the town, and loom as if to demand the attention of any who pass this way. It’s only once you’ve managed to get over the breathtaking and haunting panoramas that you can begin to properly enjoy this provincial capital of Bayan-Olgii.

And what treats there are to enjoy! Wander around and discover the mysterious Turkic Standing Stones (thought to be a whopping 12,000 years old), seek out ancient petroglyphs, or gasp at the feats of eagle hunters in the yearly Altai Kazakh Eagle Festival (in September).
