Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the Sayan Mountains located in northern Mongolia.

While traders and adventure-seekers have crossed the mountains for the past several centuries, this area remains mostly uninhabited. In fact, the closest town is located 60 miles from the center of the image.

This image was captured by an astronaut on board the International Space Station.
