Travelers in Mongolia should not pass by an ovoo without stopping. They are expected to stop and circle the ovoo three times in a clockwise direction. They should pick up a rock from the ground and add it to the pile before leaving. Also, travelers may leave offerings in the form of money, milk… Worshippers place a tree branch or stick in the ovoo and tie a blue khadag, (a ceremonial silk scarf) to the branch. They then light a fire and make food offerings, followed by a ceremonial dance and prayers Ovoos (Mongolian: овоо ) are often found at the top of mountains and high places and at borders and cross-roads.
