Mongolia, Land and Resources

The topography of Mongolia consists mainly of a plateau between about 900 and 1,500 m (about 3,000 and 5,000 ft) in elevation broken by mountain ranges in the north and west. The Altay Mountains in the southwest rise to heights above 4,000 m (14,000 ft). The Gobi Desert covers a wide arid tract in the central and southeastern areas. The most important rivers are the Selenge River and its tributary, the Orhon Gol, in the north. Large lakes include the Har Us, Hyargas, Uvs, and Hovsgol.
