367. Be a Part of Nature

Heo, Won-jun 기자2017.09.06 17:29:07

Air Busan airline launched its newest route to Mongolia last year, following Korean Air, and many travel agencies are developing new tour programs for the increasing number of tourists. In this article, I will introduce my trip in Mongolia and describe some tourist attractions.


Why Mongolia?
Last year, I took off a semester and traveled the United States and Europe. The reason why I decided to travel was to feel free from the pressure of society and to find myself. However, looking back, I did not experience much or feel anything different, because it was similar to the way I usually live in Korea. That is why this time I did not choose developed countries or big cities, but the country in which I can be a part of nature and live in a different ways.


Yolyn Am
Yolyn Am is a deep and narrow valley in the Gurvan Saikhan Mountains of southern Mongolia. This valley in the middle of the Gobi desert is famous for its permanent ice in the middle of the Gobi desert. These days, however, because of global warming, you can only see a little bit of ice. There is also a bird called ‘Yol’, which lives up in the mountains and has a wingspan of two meters. Be careful not to be deceived by people who say that they have seen the bird, because it is very hard to see with the naked eyes.



Horse Riding in the Eight Lakes National Park
One thing that you should not miss out is horse riding. Unlike horse riding in Korea, you can ride the horses as fast and freely as you want. When horse riding, you can see large numbers of wild flowers and lakes along the forest, which are perfect places to go swimming with your friends. Keep firmly in your mind that horses are very sensitive animals, so act carefully and pay attention while you ride a horse. Also, you may have a chance to sit around a campfire and listen to traditional Mongolian songs sung by your guides.



Before I started this trip, I used to complain about my situation and get stressed easily. However, after this travel, I now take my time and can look around me. This change may seem small, but it has made a big difference in my life. Through traveling, I hope readers can get a chance to make changes in their life too.
