 each other by three large glaciers.  The largest glacier is the Potanin  Glacier, which is 17 km long.
The Biluut Petroglyph Complex 
Between the high peaks of the Mongolian Altai, you can  find the Ancient Glaciers and Petroglyph sites. These unique rock paintings are inscribed  on the UNESCO world heritage list. There are  three sites, where these ancient rock  paintings can be found. One of the sites is  Tsagaan Salaa’s rock paintings which are cover 15 square kilometers.
