Mongolia: ancient deer stones at Uushigiin Uver

We flew into Murun this afternoon on our way to Khuvsgul National Park. A small deviation brought us to the collection of carved deer stones at Uushigiin Uver, believed to be 2500 to 4000 years old. The stones include carvings of deer, archery items, the sun and hunan heads.

The goats and sheep could care less.

We arrived at Lake Khuvghul around 7.00 pm in time for dinner, and the first guests of the season at this camp.
