Khadak

Khiimoriin Ovoo. Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

This is the mount that only man can climb. If the man climb it and see the sun rise, his soul become greater. And man should bring the khadak or "Khiimoriin dartsag" to the mountain and leave it on the top of it. So that man's soul will be great that year. It is the Mongolian tradition.

(Sorry for my bad English :D)
