This northern province boasts the alluring vistas of alpine forests and lush valleys gradually blending into steppe plains representing the varied landscapes of Mongolia.
Situated on the central part of the Orkhon-Selenge river basin, Bulgan province possesses one of Mongolia’s few arable regions.
The hidden gem of Bulgan province is Urantogoo-Tulga Uul Natural Monument, a stunning protected area consisting of the extinct volcanoes Urantogoo, Tulga, Togoo, and Jalavch Uul. On the top of the Mt. Urantogoo (1686 m) sits a crater, 500-600m wide and 50m deep, filled with a small ‘crater lake’ of about 20m in diameter. One side of the mountain and half of the crater bowl are covered in woods which circle the lake. Uran in Mongolian means “exquisite”, alluring to the graceful circular ridge of the crater an instance of when nature’s creation resembles that of a craftsman.
Fertile and off-the beaten path, Urantogoo Mountain makes a perfect destination for flower treks. On the way, visit Amarbayasgalant monastery, one of the three most important Buddhist centers of Mongolia. One of the most beautiful and well preserved architectural complexes of Mongolia was erected in 1727-1736 by a Manchu emperor in memory of his mentor, the great Mongolian Buddhist leader and renowned sculptor Zanabazar.
