Description

Known as the Blue Pearl of the Mongolia, Khuvsgul Lake stretches 136 kilometers into the Siberian taiga. This is the second-largest lake in Mongolia (2760 sq km) and is the country's deepest lake (up to 262 m) as well as the world's 14th largest source of fresh water.  It is a part of the Khuvsgul Lake National Park.  Its waters connect with Lake Baikal in Siberia through one single river source.

Lake Khuvsgul is full of fish, such as lenok, salmon grayling, and sturgeon. Over 200 species of birds can be spotted, including baikal teal, black stork and altai snowcock!  How many can you find? The surrounding taiga and mountains are home to argali sheep, ibex, bear, sable, reindeer and moose. Three Mongolian tribes live in the area: Darkhad, Buriat, and Tsaatan.
