Highlights of the tour

Mongolian Nomads move 4-5 times a year looking good pasture for their animals. Every nomadic family prefer to live close to water recourse, forest,  mountains and plentiful vegetation which is the best condition for the animal husbandry.

Therefore Khuisiin Naiman Nuur Natural Monument is an exceptional combination of freshwater, lush green forest, picturesque mountains and many natural resources where animals and people leisurely live in the summertime.  Also, it is a valuable place for bio-hydrologic study. These lakes with freshwater and interconnected by groundwater channels located a 5-30km distance from each other such as Shireet, Khaliut, Bugat, Khaya, Khuis, Onon, Doroo, Bayan-Uul, are called Khuisyn Naiman Nuur (Eight Lakes).
