Day 1
Lake Hövsgöl

Depart from Ulaanbaatar, enjoy a short scenic flight to Mörön or Hatgal and continue on to the Ardavhar Peninsula in the company of a knowledgeable local guide. Take in the pristine beauty of Lake Hövsgöl by camping overnight in a ger, accommodations used even to this day by Mongolian nomadic herders.

Day 2
Lake Hövsgöl National Park

Stop and take in your serene surroundings with picnics by the lake or meals at the ger camp. Hike to the sacred hills of Tsomo Had and witness locals worship the area by offering symbolic blue silk cloths known as hadags and other gifts. Admire the beautiful landscape of crystal blue shorelines and lush forested hills.

Day 3
Lake Hövsgöl National Park

Take a peaceful stroll through the forest and absorb the natural beauty around you. During the summer months, the mountains are coated in bright, beautiful wildflowers as far as the eye can see. Stop in the secluded grasslands and meet with the nomadic families who inhabit the countryside. Take this opportunity to befriend locals and learn about Mongolian culture.

Day 4

On your final day, cruise by boat through the crisp, cool water of Lake Hövsgöl and arrive at Hatgal village. Your guide will assist your transfer to Mörön airport for your flight back to Ulaanbaatar or to your next travel destination. Plan to stay in Mongolia for at least two nights after you return from Lake Hövsgöl, as flights from the countryside may be cancelled due to severe rain or fog.


Suggested Accommodations



Lake Hövsgöl, also referred to as Khövsgöl dalai or Dalai Eej, is known as the ‘Blue Pearl of Mongolia.’ It is the largest fresh water lake in the country and stretches 85 miles deep into the Siberian Taiga. As ger camps in this area can be below par camping with tents is the best and most practical accommodation option. Remote Lands provides modern camping equipment, staff and local expert guides to ensure your stay at Lake Khövsgöl is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you wish to stay in more refined accommodation, Remote Lands can arrange for a luxury ger camp to be set up for your trip.
