Mongolian ovoos are piles of rocks, wood, and cloth found at mountain peaks and high mountain trails. They are used for mountain and sky worship and as landmarks. It is customary for a herder to add a rock to the ovoo while he circles it three times in clockwise direction in order to have a safe journey.[fn][[nid:1137]][/fn]
