The Bayanzag is a famous escarpment at the edge of a large plain of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia 🇲🇳. It is famous for dinosaur fossils and it is the first place in the world where extremely well-preserved dinosaur eggs were found. You won't see dinosaur eggs or skeletons here now, but you can imagine the dinosaurs moving around at this site during the Jurassic period. The escarpment is very eroded and has steep edges and indentations like small canyons with numerous sandstone formations. The rock is composed of red sandstone and reminds me of the Grand Canyons in the USA. The place looks beautiful in the sunset light when the entire cliff glows red and orange, looks like it is on fire, hence the name "Flaming Cliffs" 🔥. Despite the bumpy journey, the beautiful rugged countryside views are well worth the effort!
