Budar Stone

Just at the border of Mongolia and China the long range of basalt rocks covering of dead volcanoes stretches as far as 3,861 square miles (10000 sq.km). By 1780-1880 local people built several small buddhist temples around this volcanic hills, therefore, this is called by local people as Sumtei Budriin Chuluu - Lava Rocks (Budar Stone) with temples. Local people consider that there are 222 extinct volcanoes in this area and volcanic upland has a 30 meter thick cover of basalt lava. They erupted lava during the Quaternary, a short time ago in geological terms.
