When Mongolia was under the Manchu depression they were imposing tax from the natural resources, and worsening Mongolian economy. Local people were angry about it and arguing Khuvsgul is not a lake it is an ocean. The Manchu asked how you would prove it. They answered Khuvsgul pours into the 100 rivers because it’s an ocean. Manchu officers knew about it, so they decided to count the rivers. The local residents live by the lake had a religious ceremony asking from the god to rain and flood the lake. After the rain, surrounding area was flooded. That is why the Manchu people stopped to tax it and named as Khuvsgul Ocean.
