Enjoy experiencing the lake and exploring the surrounding area by ourselves. Known as the “dark blue pearl” of Mongolia, Lake Khuvsgul is one of the country’s largest lakes and it features one of the most spectacular areas of the country. With 136 kilometers in length and 36 kilometers wide stretching from north to south, Khuvsgul is the 14th largest fresh-water lake in the world by volume and its 380 cubic kilometers of water make up over 1% of the world’s freshwater. The lake is elevated at 1,645 meters above sea level and, deepest; the lake is 262 meters from its surface to the bottom. Khuvsgul shares many similarities in origin, flora, and fauna with larger Russia’s Baikal Lake, which lies 200 kilometers to the east and is connected to Khuvsgul by Egiin River. About a hundred rivers and streams pour into Khuvsgul Lake, but only the Egiin River exits the lake. In the afternoon, we are also visiting a reindeer settlement. Optional activities include hiking, horse riding, or rafting along the shore of the lake. Overnight in gers at the shore of Khuvsgul lake.
