Gobi Lakes Valley desert steppe

WWF Abstract

Mongolian gazelles and nomadic herders wander this northern flank of the Gobi Desert. At about 3,300 feet (1,000 m) above sea level, the gently rolling landscape is dotted with lakes, small depressions, and scattered saltpans. Once in awhile, an isolated mountain or rocky outcrop forms a landmark on the mostly treeless plain.
