Introducing Bayankhongor

One of the most diverse aimags in the Gobi, Bayankhongor has mountains in the north, deserts in the south, a handful of lakes and rivers, hot springs and a real oasis in the far south of the province.

Bayankhongor, which means ‘rich chestnut’ (named after the colour of horses – or your skin after a couple of hours in the Gobi sun), is home to wild camels and asses and the extremely rare Gobi bear.
