  • The beauty of the lake of color, the Lake of London, is breathtaking. The only thing is that the weather is getting hotter, and so many hibernating insects are running out and flying, and the numbers are frightening. But that magnificent wide crater with the lake, it is also recommended that you can go!

  • With an easy path you reach the top of the Khorgo volcano, where you can admire, the crater which is worth to take a ride on the edge and the view of the Lake in the distance. Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur or white Lake is a beautiful Lake where you can take walks in a beautiful landscape. On its shore are stacked thousands of black stones: the ovoo, a sign of the cult that the Mongols have for the Lake. Very impressive and with really beautiful views

  • Coming from the capital, the first stage is that of the volcano. In 20 easy ascent you reach the edge of the caldera from which you can see a pool of water on the bottom; wishing you can also come down. Where guests can leave their car there are several tents each offering a different culinary specialties. The second stage is the White Lake (you can already see from the top of the volcano). It's a great body of water very pleasant to coast walk. There are several Camp on its banks. You might even see coming, as has happened to us, a herd of horses to drink.
