Detailed description


Uran-Togoo Tulga Uul Natural Reserve, Bulgan

Following a delicious breakfast, we will depart in our vehicles for the countryside. The extinct volcano of Uran Uu is located 500 kilometers west of the capital city.

Uran Uul and nearby Togoo Uul, located 60 kilometers west of Bulgan city, are now part of the 1600-hectare Uran-Togoo Tulga Uul Natural Reserve in the Khutag-Ondor sum (district).

The west side of the volcano has trails that lead to the summit.  There are some pleasant accessible camping sites available, as well as a breathtaking view.

A crater, 500 to 600 meters wide and 50 meters deep, sits atop the extinct volcano, filled with a shallow “crater lake” about 20 meters in diameter.

We will spend the next three days exploring the alpine lakes area. The Mongolian minor ethnic group known as Tsaatan or Dukha, one of the world’s last remaining reindeer herders, lives in this remote and wild area.

Shamanism, an ancient spiritual tradition focused on nature worship, guides their peculiar way of life, which is centered and arranged around reindeer.

We will have the opportunity to visit the Tsaatan tribe and learn about their culture and the impact of Shamanism on their everyday lives. On the final day, we’ll set up camp near Renchinlkhumbe village.
