National Park Water Body
A spectacular landscape full of mountains and fresh water, Lake Hovsgol National Park offers a unique opportunity to explore pristine nature in fantastic scenery centered around Mongolia’s largest and clearest freshwater lake. Explore yurt camps around the lake and visit nomadic Darkhad families, Dukha reindeer herders, or Buryats practicing Shamanism rather than Buddhism. The park features more than 200 species of birds, including the Baikal teal, bar-headed goose, black stork, and Altai snow cock. Go for a hike or a ride on horseback to enjoy wildlife, such as near-sighted wolverines, sable, Mongolian moose, brown bears, ibexes, and argali sheep.
