We trek 9 miles today to the the foot of the magnificent Altai Tavn Bogd glacier. The Potanini glacier lies at the foot of Khuiten Peak (14,350 ft.) the highest point in Mongolia.
Nairamdal Peak (13,392 ft.) marks the triple border point common to Mongolia, Russia and China. Very few species have adapted to the harsh conditions in this area above the treeline. The area is characterized by tundra, lichen-covered rocks, alpine meadows and high mountain swamps.
