Introducing Altai Tavan Bogd National Park
This stunning region stretches south from Tavan Bogd and includes the twin lakes of Khoton Nuur and Khurgan Nuur (and the less interesting Dayan Nuur), which are the source of the Khovd Gol that flows to Khar Us Nuur in Khovd aimag.
Despite its remote location, the park and its beautiful scenery make it the premier attraction in western Mongolia. Divided from China by a high wall of snow-capped peaks, the area is a trekker’s paradise.
The main entry to the park is by the bridge over the Khovd Gol, south of Tsengel. You can pay for entry there or at the Manspaa office in Ölgii. Border permits are also required.
