This beautiful park stretches south from Tavan Bogd and includes the stunning lakes of Khoton Nuur, Khurgan Nuur and Dayan Nuur. It’s a remote area divided from China by a high wall of snow-capped peaks. The three lakes are the source of the Khovd Gol, which eventually flows into Khar Us Nuur in Khovd aimag. It’s possible to make rafting trips down river from Khoton Nuur. It occupies a nice setting amid the mountains and there is good camping away from town, by the river. There are many archaeological sites in the region. Mogoit Valley (Snake Valley) contains a man stone, deer stone, ancient graves and a Kazakh cemetery with an interesting beehive-shaped mausoleum about 2km to the north. 

Tavan Bogd

Tavan Bogd

Tavan Bogd (Five Saints) is a soaring cluster of mountains that straddles the border between Mongolia, Russia and China. The highest peak in the range, Khuiten Uul (Cold Peak; 4374m), is the tallest mountain in Mongolia and is of interest to professional climbers. It’s fairly dangerous to climb: you need to be with an experienced group, properly equipped with ice axes, crampons and ropes; don’t even consider attempting it solo. The best time to climb is August and September, after the worst of the summer rains. Besides Khuiten, the range includes Naran (Sun), Ölgii (Land), Bürged (Eagle) and Nairamdal (Friendship) uuls. Even if you are not a climber, it’s worth trekking up to the Khuiten Uul base camp (elev 3092m), where you can get stunning views of all the peaks as well as the 12km-long Polanyi glacier, which tumbles out of the range. It’s possible to walk onto the glacier. If you’re not too exhausted already, head to the top of Malchin Peak. The three-hour walk is rewarded with views of Russia and the surrounding mountains.
