Orkhon waterfall, also known as Ulaan Tsutgalan, is one of the
most impressive sights in central Mongolia. The waterfall is located 100km from
Kharkhorin Soum can be reached in 4-5 hours from the city and in 2-3 hours from
Tuvkhun secret monastery. The water fall is ten meters wide and twenty meters high.
In 2.5 million years ago, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions
occurred at the head of the Tsagaan Azarga River, located in the Khangai
mountain range. The hot lava created a layer of thick basalt stone mulch that
is hundreds of km deep. Geologist think that The Orkhon River flow on the
basalt stone river created a massive canyon.
