Lake Hovsgol

Clear and pristine, Lake Hovsgol is one of the finest and most pristine bodies of water in all of Asia. It is also one of the clearest lakes in the world, and is nicknamed Mongolia's "Dark Blue Pearl". The lake is ringed by forests, rocky shores, and the nearby Ikh Uul Mountain, a 10,000 foot tall peak that offers panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. It is set in a spectacular landscape of Siberian taiga with the Horidal Saridag Mountain Range to the west.
