Shipwreck Rock

The Flaming Cliffs
driving north into the snow

Just near the Flaming Cliffs stands Shipwreck Rock.  Nearby we found an overlooking ridge and I asked Simya to take my photo.  After a dozen attempts, he just could not get it right.  So, I took a few shots and on the 3rd attempt I captured the above photo.  As we drove closer we crested a small bluff and I asked him to stop the truck because I thought that it would make a great photo (below).  I was very happy that we decided to visit the Flaming Cliffs and Shipwreck Rock in the morning as the rising sun really accented the red color of the rocks.

  1. Hey, I stumbled across your site. Looking for information about Mongolia. I’m headed there on August 2nd of this year (2012 ) and wondering if I could pick your brain about travel guides and so on. And if I should just show up in Ulaanbaatar or book ahead?

    Thank you.

    • Sorry for the late reply – you really can’t go wrong with the Lonely Planet guides, I’d get the Mongolia specific book. Mongolia has become quite tourist friendly in that you can hire a car and driver and guide/cook who will accompany you around and show you the way. Best if you can get 3 or 4 people to share the cost.
