Uran Togoo

Uran-Togoo Tulga Uul Natural Reserve, Bulgan

After a good breakfast in our hotel restaurant, we will set off to the countryside in our vehicles. About 500 km driving west north of capital city is the extinct volcano of Uran Uul and nearby Togoo Uul, now part of the 1600 hectare Uran-Togoo Tulga Uul Natural Reserve in the sum (district) of Khutag-Ondor, Bulgan province.  It is a beautiful place to break long driving day. Trails to the top of the relatively unimpressive volcano lead up from the west side, which also has some nice camping areas and beautiful view over surrounding area.

Cycling Across River

Drive to Khovsgol Lake

Today we will leave the Darkhadiin Khotgor Depression towards Khovsgol Lake. Depending on weather and road condition we might take shot cut directly through mountains or long detour.  We will reach the breath taking beautiful lake known as Mongolian Blue Pearl.

Khovsgol Lake is a huge 2760 square km alpine lake (130 km in length and 30 km in width), surrounded by mountain chains, thick pine forests and lush meadow with grazing yaks and horses. More than 100 small rivers and streams feed the lake with crystal clear water. Water exits the lake through only one river, the Egiin, whose waters eventually reach the Baikal Lake. The lake contains about 1.5% of the world’s fresh water (excluding water contained in the icecaps). The lake and rivers are full of fish. Around a dozen species of fish inhabit the lake and rivers. The most well-known are the sturgeon, grayling, lennok, salmon, taimon, etc.
