These granite formations with 15km long and 10 km wide are located in Dund Gobi Province. Tahilgat Mountain with 1768 m is the highest point. It is believed over 20 kinds of medical herbs and many species of animals such as wild sheep, ibex and marmot exist here, Surtiin am is one of many beautiful places in Baga gazriin stone massif. This is a narrow canyon with asp, birch, white whicker and elm tree, as well the ruin of a stone temple and the site of 2 yurts where monks lived and meditated since the seventieth century.

There is a 20 m long cave near to the Surtiin Am. Crystals can be found around the cave. Life size paintings of deer are painted on a granite stone and another yurt shaped stone called Ger chuluu. According to scientists, 64 tombs and tumuli dated back to Xiongnu tribe have been found around Baga Gazriin Chuluu. Also, there is a spring water which comes from under source.
