Orkhon Falls or _”Orkhonii Khürkhree”_, white waves flowing on the black stone, transformed in rainbow by sunrays… These 16-metres (52,5 feet) high and 5-metres (16 feet) wide waterfalls are just magic !
Orkhon waterfalls formed 20.000 years ago after a unique combination of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. In the heart of summer, their flow is very important, but they can dry up during spring. It’s the Ulaan Tsutgalaan River, _”Red Confluence”_, which forms these falls by flowing into the Orkhon River.
From the camp of the families living in the surroundings, they can be an ideal hike along the river, or a ride among the steppes.
