Bayanzag Flaming Cliffs - Gobi Desert / Southern Mongolia

Bayanzag "Flaming Cliffs" are located in the province of Ömnögobi ("South Gobi").

Their name means "rich in saxaul", an endangered Central Asian tree 2 to 9 m high, whose roots are precious to protect soil from erosion.

Significant paleontological discoveries have been made there, especially by American paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews in 1920: fossilized dinosaur eggs and specimens of Velociraptor.

Their nickname of "Flaming Cliffs" is due to the orange-red rock the mountain is made of.
