Northern Mongolia tours boast a rich, typical Siberian Taiga landscape. Vast pine forests covering the rugged terrain consist of rolling hills, big rivers and swampy marshlands.
The pinnacle of the region is undoubtedly Lake Khuvsgul, affectionately dubbed by Mongolians as the Mother Lake, or the Blue Pearl, depicting the deep appreciation the people of Mongolia revere to this immense body of water, the world’s 14th largest freshwater lake in the world.
Khuvsgul lake is surrounded by towering mountains, making it a unique eco-system of varied fauna and flora. The vicinity of the lake is home to the Tsaatan, a small ethnic group that makes its living by herding the majestic reindeer. Reaching the Tsataan would often require an adventure of its own, but seeing this unique culture is an event not to be missed.
Sharing a border with Russia, Mongolia’s neighbor to the north, influences the local economy and culture. As one travels up north, the typical Mongolian gers gradually make way for solid wooden houses, typical usually to the people of Siberia.
We welcome you to choose one of our Northern Mongolia tours for once in a lifetime experience.
