Yolyn Am, 'The Vulture's Mouth', commonly called Eagle Canyon by travelers, is a striking gorge in the deep desert, remarkable for the micro-climate that its formation creates. Sheer rock walls, up to 660 feet high, keep out the light and the heat, whilst four waterfalls pour into the canyon, chill as they leave the sun, and freeze.
Yolyn Am is lined with ice almost year-round, (the best time to see this is between March and July), and at its narrowest point only two people (or animals — the canyon is a favored haunt of the wild Ibex and Argali) can pass abreast.
