Geography

The northern slopes are part of the watershed of the Yenisei river, facing the western Sayan Mountains. The eastern end touches the large watershed of the Selenge in Mongolia. The foothills of the southern slopes cross into Mongolian territory. They form the northern limits of a large basin of steppes, which extends south to the Mongolian Altay Mountains and includes the salt lake Uvs Nuur. The western end is located near the northern Altay Mountains in the Russian Altai Republic.
