Bai-Taiga is a revered mountain in the far west of Tuva.

Bai-Taiga, whose slopes descend and descend from on high,
With your lofty head and steppes at your waist,
O my taiga, bountiful master spirit.
O my taiga, whose slopes go on and on,
with your lofty shoulders,
The wealthy stayed at your hem and never moved on.
