Introduction

The lakes in Mongolia are distributed unevenly across the country.

Many, including some of the largest, can be found in the Great Lakes Depression between the Altai, Khangai and Tannu-Ola mountain ranges in the west. A second group can be found in mountain valleys throughout the country.

 Lake Khövsgöl in a rift valley south of the Russian Sayan Mountains has the largest volume because of its great depth. The remaining lakes found in the steppe areas and in the Gobi desert are usually smaller and shallow. The total area of the lakes is 16,003 km². The 83.7% of the total lakes number are the small lakes with surface area less than 0.1 km² (5.6% of the total area).

There are 3,060 lakes with surface area 0.1 km² and more

FULL ITINERARY

Day 1- Elsentasarkhai

In the morning you will be transferred by vehicle to the Elsentasarkhai (Mini Gobi). Elsen Tasarkhai is a part of the Mongol Els sand dunes, that continues 80 km long 5 km wide across Burd, Bulgan and Gurvanbulag soums of Uvurkhangai province. It is located 280 km west of Ulaanbaatar.

Day 2 - Kharkhorum "Erdenezuu Monastery"

“Now you will know about our culture and history. Erdene-Zuu is the oldest Buddhist Monastery in Mongolia. The history of Erdene Zuu is a mix of invasions, religious purges, political shifts, and outright murder. Damaged and dismantled in 1688 during a conflict between Dzungars (a confederation of Mongolian tribes) and Khalkha Mongols (historically ruled by the Khans), what remained of the monastery was reassembled in the 18th century. Again, in 1939, the order suffered a blow at the hands of Khorloogiin balsan, the Communist leader of Mongolia, who ordered the destruction of scores of temples and the slaughter of thousands of monks throughout the country. All that remained of Erdene Zuu were three temples and small order, with nearly one hundred structures destroyed and an estimated one thousand members either murdered or imprisoned. ”

Day 3 - Ulaan Tsutgalan

After a strong rain this magnificent seasonal waterfall, also called Ulaan Tsutgalan (Улаан Цутгалан), is one of the best sights in central Mongolia. About 25m downstream from the waterfall, you can climb down to the bottom of the gorge; it’s 22m deep and ted with pine trees.

Day 4 - Tsenkher Hot Spa

Arkhangai province is famous for its many ancient volcanoes. These volcanoes and the accompanying tectonic activity are responsible for the numerous water springs and natural hot water that flows year long from an elevation of 1860 meters (1.16 mile) above sea level. Mongolia’s most famous hot spring, Tsenkher natural hot spring, is located in Tsenkher soum. Situated between forested hills and breathtaking mountains, this hot spring is surrounded by cliffs and rapid rivers. Water from this geological spectacle emerges from the ground at 85.5°C (185.9°F). It is said that the Tsenkher hot springs have healing properties that assist in treating particular diseases and nervous system diseases. The water that flows into and from the hot spring is composed of hydrogen sulfide, sodium carbonate, hydro-carbonate, sulfate, and fluorite. The Tsenkher hot springs provide a place for visitors to relax in naturally heated water-pools that are artfully nestled in a lush mountain valley. This health spa offers indoor and outdoor baths.

Khorgo dormant volcano, Terkhiin Tsagaan river, and Khuduu river have been protected as a National Park since 1995.

The spring is very effective for internal organs and many Mongolians aiming to drink it. Khetsuu khad rock is the most attractive natural formation in this area, the lake waves are very strong and it seems like an ocean beach resort of Mongolia.
