dune near khundu with ovoo
 
an ovoo is a shamanistic power place and is often found at the top of mountains or in high places, throughout Mongolia.
ovoos are usually a simple pile of stones or made from wood bearing a few blue silk scarves.
 
when travelling, it is custom to stop and circle an ovoo three times in clockwise direction, in order to have a safer journey.
usually, rocks are picked up from the ground and added to the pile, but in this region you usually can't find rocks.
