Welcome to Üüreg Nuur

The 3000m-plus surrounding peaks include Tsagaan Shuvuut Uul (3496m), part of the Uvs Nuur Strictly Protected Area which provides a haven for snow leopards and other mammals.

The lake is great for swimming (albeit a little chilly) and locals say it has plenty of fish. It’s one of the few mosquito-free lakes in the region.

The freshwater lake contains some unidentified minerals, and is designated as ‘saltwater’ on some maps; it’s best to boil or purify all water from here.
