Monguni, Day 7: Rest Day Orkhon Falls

We had the opportunity to sleep in today, with breakfast at 8am instead of an unworldly 7am.

After doing some much needed laundry by the river, we walked to the Orkhon Waterfall, about 10min from our camp. It wasn’t a particularly large waterfall, but plunges about 20m to a deep pool below. We scramble down the lava formations to the bottom of the falls. Daniel and Ashley went for a dunk under the waterfall, although the rest of us resisted the urge to plunge into the chilly water.

In the evening we watched as David W flew his kite in the sunset, followed by some stargazing after dusk. The sky was clear and and the stars were out in force. David gave us astronomy lessons, as we watched meteorites streaking past (it was the start of the Perseids meteor showers), and we spotted at least 5 or 6, as well as a couple of satellites.

Others stayed in the meal tent playing ‘Dominion’ into the wee hours of the night.
