  • Spent a few days here staying at a Get camp on the quieter eastern side of the lake. Absolutely stunning setting to relax and enjoy the alpine lake scenery with its mixture of turquoise and blues.  more »
  • Getting out of the sands of the Gobi, a peek at Khövsgöl (Hovsgol). A huge Lake, located in the continuation of the Baikal rift zone, can be considered the brother of Baikal (in geological terms). Nature along almost untouched, especially on the East coast where not so with roads. They are-but not everyone there will ... Very nicely. Drive will not regret!

  • In the Mongolian and Russian borders, quiet silence, elegant, morning and evening cold air refreshing, the lake scenery is intoxicating, we also arranged a horse mountain climbing, on the journey feel like a ring, the spirit in the forest horse to leave the Middle Earth feeling. The Gull is like a fairyland in a man's life.
