Part of a World Heritage-listed landscape, Orkhon Valley invites you to explore lifestyles and traditions of nomadic tribes that have been wandering through these steppes for centuries. Discover the remains of 8th-century Turkic temples, shops, and monasteries, as well as the 13th-century capital of Genghis Khan's empire. See how little life has changed in the vast grasslands where sheep, cows, goats, and horses satisfy most of people's needs for food, clothing, and transportation.

  • A wonderful landscape, untouched, where peace and silence, full of grazing animals. The falls are not very high, but have their fascination. You can see from above or following a trail you can go down to below.

  • Thanks to the fix needed to reach these pristine and secluded valleys, remained intact and not overrun by mass tourism. The same path to get to the falls and the Tovkhon monastery are worth the trip. Unique opportunity to get in touch with the latest nomadic peoples of the Earth.

  • Except of course the amazing landscape, the main attraction of the Valley is the beautiful waterfall. Is not very high, but it offers pleasantly at the sight. You can stop just above or go down to the Lake below.
