Tsagaan Suvarga (White Stupa)

Tsagan Suvarga is the name given by local people to an impressively eroded cliff. Over millions of years various changes in the environment have produced its famous coloured layers. The formation is over 50 meters at its highest point and it is a sheer slope, which from a distance seems to be the ruins of an ancient city.
