Lake Huvsgul, the Blue Pearl of Mongolia, is the country’s deepest and second largest lake. It is 136 km long, 36 km wide, 262 meters deep and is located at an altitude of 1,645 m above sea level. The outflow from Lake Huvsgul drains into the Eg River, which flows then through Selenge River and finally reaches Lake Baikal in Siberia. 

Lake Huvsgul lies within the boundaries of the Huvsgul National Park, among beautiful forested mountains with thousands of evergreen trees, lofty mountain peaks, and trout filled streams and lakes, and dense pine forests, meadows blanketed with flowers and air filled with songs of different birds.

Untouched by industry and modern urban life, the Lake Huvsgul’s water is unbelievably clean. It contains two percent of the world's fresh water resources. This is a place in Mongolia where you can get a sense of total unspoiled wilderness.

Taiga fauna and flora, lifestyle of Tsaatan people, breeder of reindeer, are the main attractions for tourists. The area is paradise for outdoor travelers and there are plenty of room for activities like hiking, birding, fishing, horseback riding and kayaking. Lake Huvsgul National Park is on the important migration route for birds from Siberia, thus facilitating marvelous opportunities for bird watching.
