KHUVSGUL LAKE

Description

Khuvsgul area is the north part of Mongolia and southern end of the great Siberian taiga forest, in which the Siberian larch tree is dominant. The area is well known for its alluring lake Khuvsgul, also called “Blue Pearl” and Tsaatan-reindeer people. The stunning beauty of nature, pristine sparkling lake and ethnic diversity make the region distinct from other parts of the country. It is always compared to Switzerland and Montano by visitors because of the craggy mountain peaks and rolling green hills, which are completely covered with colorful wild flowers. The lake is the second largest (136km long, 36 km wide) and the deepest (262m) in the country. It contains 70% of fresh water in Mongolia and home to a great variety of fish. The lake is frozen from the end of October until May which provides a great opportunity to develop winter tourism.
