In the northwest of this plain rises the mountain of Ich Nomgon, in the eastern south - the mountain of Baga Nomgon. In the northern part of the complexes there is a high mountain with sharp peak Hogno Khan. The front part of this mountain is described as "pure dunes called sand splinters" of the south, they extend for several kilometers from west to east" Altangereliin Enchtur
