Lake Khövsgöl & Northern Mongolia

Ask any Mongolian which is their favourite province and chances are they will say Khövsgöl. This stunningly beautiful area is a land of thick forests, rushing rivers, sparkling lakes, rugged mountains, and endless taiga. It’s the beauty of the Alps with exotic yak thrown in for good measure.

It’s adventurous outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, fishing, and more. Escape the crowds at remote eco-camps and experience starry nights in a ger, traditional tent accommodations, outfitted simply with blankets, beds, and wood burning stoves to keep you cosy in the cool night air. Warm up with lakeside saunas before jumping in to an icy lake. During the summer months, the region can be accessed by a short flight and drive. During the remaining months, wild hearts can still make their way via 10 hours overland on a tarmac road.
