DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Experience Mother Nature at her best in Mongolia and journey to Lake Hövsgöl. With miles of crystal, blue water and lush forested hills that cover the picturesque landscape, this tour is sure to excite even the most seasoned traveler. Take the road less travelled and embrace the life of a Mongolian local by staying in traditional felt tents known as a ger camp. Converse with the nomadic families who inhabit the pristine countryside. Find peace and relaxation while hiking up the various hills and mountainsides near the Ardavhar Peninsula. Finally, don’t forget to take in the breathtaking views of untouched nature at its finest.

Day-to-Day

DAY 1 Lake Hovsgol National Park

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 Hovsgol 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 Hovsgol 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 Mörön

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.
