Khovsgol is without doubt one of the most beautiful and accessible parts of Mongolia. Water from Lake Khovsgol is so pure that you can drink it. The shores are surrounded by forests and flower filled meadows, and along the western side lie the dramatic Khoridol Saridag mountains. This five day trek along the lake shore and up onto the mountain ridges offers magnificent views and great hiking. There may be opportunities to meet local nomadic people and observe their ancient lifestyle.
