  • It's an UNESCO site, vast grassland & faraway mountain ranges with lots of horses, goats & cattle for company. We stayed at the Orkhon Ger Camp just a kilometer from the waterfall. 
  • in a raid motorcycle arrived at the falls of the Orhon. What peace and what serenity! We do have this habit in France. To get there he must meander among the stones of basalt and there you discover a beautiful waterfall. We were homestay, Mongolians are very friendly and the food is good. very good trip.

  • It is a site very visited by the Mongols themselves. We were on weekend and I was certainly quite petado. But it is worthwhile to take a look at the waterfall and Valley. They should take care of and protect their natural heritage.
