Several hours west of the capital city of Ulaanbaatar lies Khogno Khan Uul Nature Reserve, which, based on my experience, didn't seem to be nearly as clearly designated or regulated as nature reserves in other countries, but this makes sense when you consider Mongolia's tiny population and lack of wealth. I stayed with a family who lived at the foot of the hills shown in this panorama, and spent an afternoon climbing around their rocky, barren homeland, enjoying the solitude and taking photos. It was truly a beautiful place.
