Darkhad valley: (Дархадын хотгор or Darkhadiin khotgor)

Darkhad valley: (Дархадын хотгор or Darkhadiin khotgor) is a large valley in northwestern Khovsgol province in Mongolia. It is situated between the Ulaan Taiga and Khoridol Saridag mountain ranges at an altitude of about 1600 m, about 160 km long and 40 km wide. The area is 4270 km².
The valley is rich in lakes and rivers, including Dood Tsagaan Lake and Shishged River, to name the largest ones. The area is praised for its natural beauty and the rivers are famous for various kinds of fish, including taimen…….
The Darkhad valley is divided between the 3636Ulaan-Uul, 33636Renchinlkhümbe, and Tsagaannuur soums. Inhabitants are mainly Darkhad (whom the valley's name derives from), and also some Tsaatan or Reindeer people. Their lifestyle and traditions are of special interest not only to tourists, but also to researchers and scholars from all over the world as they are very isolated in their remote and difficult to reach homeland. Shamanism, the worship of nature, is the main religion of the reindeer breeders.

Khuvsgul lake

Khuvsgul lake: Khuvsgul Lake is located in the northwest of Mongolia near the border to Russia, at the foot of the eastern Sayan Mountains. It is 1,645 m above sea level, 136 km long and 262 m deep. It is the second-most voluminous freshwater lake in Asia, and holds almost 70% of Mongolia's fresh water and 0.4% of all the fresh water in the world. Its watershed is relatively small, and it only has small tributaries. It gets drained at the south end by the Egiin Gol, which connects to the Selenge and ultimately into Lake Baikal. In between, the water travels a distance of more than 1,000 km, and a height difference of 1,169 m, although the line-of-sight distance is only about 200 km. Its location in northern Mongolia helps form the southern border of the great Siberian taiga forest, of which the dominant tree is the Siberian Larch. The lake is surrounded by several mountain ranges. The highest mountain is the Burenkhaan / Munkh Saridag (3,492 m), which has its peak north of the lake exactly on the Russian-Mongolian border. ​

Taiga-Reindeer's place

Taiga is a mountain range in north-western Khövsgöl, Mongolia, between the Darkhad Valley and Mongolia's border with Tuva, Russia. The Shishged River and the Delgermörön have their sources in this area. A part of the area along the border with Tuva has been put under natural protection. Mongolia’s Tsaatan reindeer herders are Mongolia’s smallest ethnic minority – a community of nomadic reindeer herders with strong shamanist beliefs. Originally from Tuva in Siberia, they have historically inhabited the border region of Russia and Mongolia. Ethnically, the community identifies as Dukha, but their lifestyle as reindeer herders earned them the Mongolian name Tsaatan, which means roughly ‘with reindeer.’
