West Khangai Mountains

West Khangay Mountain Tour


About 1200km from the capital this massif occupies the north and centre of the country with a sacred mountain for the Mongols: the Otgontenger peaking at 4000 meters. The Khangay massif is separated south of the Altai by the Great Lakes Depression where it will be possible to admire 2000 meters above the sea the lake Khar Nuur, further the famous rock Senjit Khad and the canyon of the Mukhartyn River which seems to be born from the sand dunes of the surrounding.

The Eight Lakes Nature Reserve lies high in the Khangai Mountains, Mongolia’s second largest mountain range. Barely accessible to vehicles, the nature reserve is being kept in a pristine condition, allowing the few visitors that do make the effort to climb up there to enjoy Mongolian nature at its best.

Best months for Khangai mountains: May- September
