Site description: The site comprises two groups of rocky
mountain, situated 20km away from each other in the middle of true desert and
semi-desert zones. There grow elm trees along dry riverbeds. Brushes and dry
steppe vegetations dominate between mountains and their surrounding areas. Tourist
camp operates at the site. Increasing livestock number is resulting to
degradation of pastureland. In dry years, many herders came to the site from
the south, leading to shortage and degradation of pastureland.
