Introducing Kharkhiraa Uul & Türgen Uul
The twin peaks of Kharkhiraa Uul (4037m) and Türgen Uul (3965m), which dominate the western part of the aimag, are curiously almost equidistant between Achit, Üüreg and Uvs nuurs. As vital sources of the Uvs Nuur, the mountains are part of the Uvs Nuur Strictly Protected Area. In summer, the area has some excellent hiking opportunities and the chance to meet Khoton nomads who graze their flocks in the area. Khoton people are famed throughout Mongolia as shamans.
