Mongolian Gobi desert is clearing a mind
145 - 65 million years ago when dinosaurs ruled the earth, the Gobi was sandstone area, covered in savannah. There were also forests, lakes, sea and marshes. A sparsely populated Mongolia, the Soviet Union’s closed political system keep the Gobi desert untamed, wild and secret.
The Himalaya mountain range blocks rain clouds from reaching the Gobi. The average rainfall is 17.8 cm (7 inches) per year. Because of low precipitation, Gobi preserved well million years – natural history and dinosaur’s fossil. The significant thing of Gobi is its diverse landscapes and hospitality of locals. You will see stony plains, badlands, rocky outcrops, saxual forest, glacier, salt lakes and even 2846 meter high mountains. But sand dunes only make up three percent of the region. The Mongolian Gobi is special with its significant vegetation, lush mixture of valleys, meadows and classic desert steppe.
