Day 3: Boating and horseback riding

After breakfast, we will boat to Khadan Khuis, one of four irelands of Khuvsgul Lake. Boating another side of the Lake and visiting a reindeer family is optional if the reindeer family has not moved. The reindeer people breed reindeer not only for their antlers, also for milk, meat, hide, ride and medicinal purposes. They live in huts covered with canvas or animal skins even in the cold winter. The remoteness of the Taiga forest makes their life completely dependent on nature. They are well educated about how to use herbs and plants for meals and medicinal purpose. As well as, most famous Shamans are among them. The reindeer family we visit today is a representation of the reindeer people moved from the depths of Taiga temporarily. After visiting the reindeer people, we will visit a nomad family and have 2-3 hours horseback riding along the lake’s shore and through open valleys of the mountains. You may choose the path to a higher elevated area to see the lake and its beautiful surrounding from up.

When to travel Khuvsgul Lake?

The most suitable time to travel the lake is between 10 June and 1 September. The tour is available between 25 May and 10 September. However, the lake still has its ice cover partially until 10 June and weather will be bit cold. Between 10 June and 1 September, the weather will be warmer and enjoyable. Due to the high altitude (approximately 1650 m above sea level) and relatively higher acceptance of precipitation, the weather in the area is relatively humid and cooler than central and southern part of Mongolia. During your trip to the lake, you should expect inflexible weather hourly, daytime and at nights. Snowfall may occur in May, early June, late August and in September in some years. July and first half of August is the wettest period. Average day temperatures are +20°C, highest +25°C at the end of May, June, at the end of August and in September. The temperature may drop to +7°C and below in the evening and at nights. July and August average daylight time temperature is +25°C, hottest +35°C and night temperature could drop into +10°C. The temperature dramatically falls if it rains.We suggest you bring clothes suitable either in warm, cold and wet weather in July and August.
