A complex of 30 deer stones of Uushig Valley and its burial mounts belong to the ancient Huns period and over 3000 years old. The Bronze Age funeral practice, sacrificial ritual and ideology and animal style art, which were spread among ancient nomads, are all together represented through deer stones made by long block of granite. Highly artistic illustrations of deers and other images are symbol of Shamanism. Especially, statues with images of human face draw attentions of many scientists and considered one of the rarest statues.
About midway along border between Mongolia and Russian Siberia, in a gigantic stone bowl nearly 110km long and almost 40km wide, lies 3% of the all the fresh water on earth - Lake Khusgul. The lake region is home to an enormous variety of plants and animals. Since 1990s Lake Khuvsgul and the entire surrounding area have been designated as a national park, and Khuvsgul is today a naturalist's paradise and an idyllic holiday destination. The water in the lake is so clean and clear that one can easily catch sight of ground.

breakfast time → horseback riding → lunch time → visit to Tsaatan, reindeer herder, family → dinner time → hiking → overnight in the National Park
Mongols are historically a nomadic people, and thus many of their cultural symbols reflect nomadic life. The horse is probably the most central part of Mongolian culture. Our excellent horseback-riding program is tailored to your experience level from the beginner to the intermediate and advanced. Meet the horses and start horse trek. A half day is all you will need to enjoy the most breathe-taking views that no other horse stable in the lake area can offer you!
Today, you will visit a reindeer herders’ family. They are Tuvan people who moved to the Mongolia from Tuvan Republic around 1920s to the northern most part of Mongolia. Dukha (another name) are one of the last groups of nomadic reindeer herders (about 40 families left). Some reindeer people moved to the lake area for selling hand made souviner to tourists and brought their reindeers.
