In northern Mongolia, where the Central Asian Steppe meets the Siberian Taiga, Lake Huvsgul National Park preserves a place of outstanding and pristine beauty. It has long been regarded as “Blue Pearl of Mongolia”   Lake Huvsgul is one of 17 ancient lakes worldwide and is variously estimated an between 2 and 5 million years old.  This exceptionally pritistine lake is 136 km long, 20-40 km wide, and up to 260 m deep; it contains nearly 70% of all fresh water in Mongolia. The only outlet river Eg flows to the Selenge River, that connects Lake Baikal with Lake Huvsgul. They are sister lakes.

In 1992, this stunning landscape were set aside as Lake Huvsgul National Park.

In 2011, the whole territory of park was expanded to 1.180.270 hectares when the uppe headwaters of the Uur River were made a part of the park. In recent years, this spectacular landscape of water and mountains that is sacred to so many has become the destination of more and more travelers, from all around Mongolia and beyond.

Tsaatan people: The Tsaatan people are also known as the Dukha, an ethnic group residing in northern Mongolia. During World War II, their home country of Tuva was overtaken by the Soviet Union. Under Soviet rule, the Dukha community’s way of life was put at risk. Reindeer herding is a central element to their culture, and the possibility of their new government seizing their animals was a very real threat. A nomadic people, many Dukha families left Tuva and escaped to Mongolia. However, the initial move wasn’t entirely peaceful, and they faced the possibility of deportation up until 1956. Once the Mongolian government extended citizenship rights to the Dukha community, they became an integral piece of Mongolia’s history and culture. Today, reindeer herding is revered by many as a unique and ancient craft.
