Mongolia Tourism Website

Mongolia National Tourism Center

As usual with smaller countries, a local tour operator has registered the “Visit Mongolia” URL, so don’t be fooled. It’s not the national tourist site. The actual tourist site is run by the government and does not offer “deals” and an “about us” page that describes the company!

The actual tourist site, though, is a pretty dry government created site that discusses visas and the like. Buried deep on the first page are some interesting links to the “Wonders of Mongolia”, such as Terkhin Tsagaan Lake, Erdene Zuu monastery and Zanabazar’s masterpiece, Kharakhorum and Khuvsguuul Lake.

From the website:

“Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake, Khorgo: also known as White Lake is a lake in the Khangai Mountains in central Mongolia. The Khorgo volcano is located near the eastern end of the lake and the Suman River springs from lake. The crater is about 300-400 meters wide, deep is about 70-80 meters. The lake located on the 2060 meters high from the bottom of sea. There are 10 rivers streaming into lake and one river Suman took its stream from lake. There is small Iceland on this lake.”
