Nestled among boreal forests of the mountainous Khuvsgul province lies the ”Dark Blue Pearl of Mongolia”
The ancient Lake Khuvsgul is believed to be millions of years old and is one of the cleanest freshwater lakes in the world. It is the second-most voluminous freshwater lake in Asia, and holds almost 70% of Mongolia’s fresh water supplies. The locals reverently call the great lake the “Mother Sea” and the surrounding area is under state protection as the Lake Khuvsgul National Park.
At least 46 tributary rivers traverse this region lush with rugged peaks, rolling hills, pristine forests and wildflower meadows. The forests and valleys are home to a variety of wildlife, and birdlife is likewise varied and interesting with over 240 bird species visiting the park year over year. Whether you prefer a challenging hike in the mountains, horse-trek through the valleys or a leisurely walk along the lakeshore, the stunning scenery can be enjoyed by all. Get on a boat or a kayak to find yourself immersed in the shimmering beauty of the crystal clear water of the lake.
The natural splendor of the land is enriched by the marvelous culture of the people who call this place home. Nomadic pastoralists inhabited this area for thousands of years. Their cattle of sheep, goats, horses and yaks live harmoniously within the park’s ecosystem. Mongolia’s indigenous ethnic religion of shamanism was practiced since prehistoric times and continues to thrive in these northern lands. Of several ethnic groups living in Khuvsgul province, the Tsaatan people are known for their domesticated reindeer herds and teepees resembling those of Native-Americans.
