In the Northern borders of the country, where the Shamans live, is located the blue pearl of Mongolia, little brother of Lake Baikal of the neighbouring Siberia. Discover by foot, on horseback and by-boat one of the natural wonders of the country, Lake Khövsgöl.
Day 1 - 3Magic hike on the banks of the lake
Ulan Bator - Moron
Flight to Mörön, the capital of the province of Khövsgöl, where our driver is waiting for us.
We arrive at Lake Khövsgöl, one of the natural wonders of the world. This mountain covers an area of 2760 square kilometres, and its water is so pure that we can drink it! It's surrounded with many peaks culminating at more than 2000 metres and covered with forests of pines and lush meadows where yaks and horses graze!
We go towards East and the green small valleys of Alag Sar, and spend the night in a small yurts camp.
- 2, 3
Let's start a beautiful story… With local breeders and their yaks, we leave for our 2-days hike or pony-trek in the tree-filled valleys of Alag Tsar. Following the peaceful tempo of the cart, we discover this land of nomadism. In the heart of summer, the area is flowered and we will move literally on a carpet of edelweiss, while at West, we will see on the opposite bank the peaks culminating at 3000 metres that bathe in the crystal water of the lake.
In the evening, with the breeders, we will put up the yurt that we carried, in which we will spend the night.
Day 4Boating on the lake
Alag Tsar - Ongolog
We go for a 2-hours boat ride on Lake Khövsgöl that we cross from East to West, before leading to Ongolog on the opposite bank of the river.
The rest of the day is dedicated to a trip in canoe along the banks of the lake or to a walk in the neighbouring mountains for those who prefer to. The lake is a natural reserve housing 291 species of birds, and we may have the good luck to see whooper swans, black-throated loon or ospreys.
Day 5Return flight to Ulan Bator
Ongolog - Moron
Visit of the site containing several deer stones at Uushigiin Övör.
Arrival in town and transfer to your hotel where you can rest a few moments.
