TIC 8.5 (KHUISIIN NAIMAN LAKE, KHARKHORIN)

Overview

KHUISIIN NAIMAN NUUR: Eight lakes of varying size are located in the Khangai mountain range in central Mongolia, these mountains have formed from the volcanic eruptions that have occurred throughout the ages. The names of the lakes are Shireet, Khaliut, Bugat, Khaya, Duruu, Onon, Khuis, and Bayan-uul. These lakes are 2700m-3165m above sea level. The distance between the lakes rages from 500m to 3 km. The biggest lake is called lake Shireet.


These lakes are surrounded by Siberian pines and a Siberian larch forest. The mountains around these lakes are connected by a flat area that is made up of volcanic stone. Around this area, there are a few volcanic craters. These lakes were created when the Khanbayan volcano erupted behind the Khangai mountain range, and its lava thickened and hardened, blocking the Tsagaan-azragariver. An area of 11.500 hectares has been protected as a National Park since 1995. Khaliut, Bugat and Khuis lakes are connected by small rivers, in times of little rain the water levels of these rivers greatly decreeses. Mongolian biologist and doctor, A. Dulmaa, bred fish in the first lake Shireet, then she brought and bred omul fish from Baikal lake in Khaliut and Bugatlake. There is a big rocky stone called Shuranga cliff on the way to Huisiin naiman nuur from Uyanga soum. According to the legend if you throw a rock over this cliff, your wish will come true.
