A rainbow of blue colors shine off the surface of Lake Khuvsgul. It’s dark and pearly in the center, flickers with sapphire and azure tones, then gets softer still as the lake disperses into numerous rivers.
Khovsgul is the size of Switzerland and contains 1.5% of the world’s fresh water. But you will not be thinking about statistics as you sit on the water’s edge and marvel at the alpine landscape.
You can hike in the nearby pine forests and take a dip in the calm water. A local guide will take you by boat onto the lake.
Afterwards you can simply rest in the sun outside your ger, drink lots of salty yak butter tea and watch dozens of eagles in the sky above.
