Hovsgol Lake is a huge 2760 square km alpine lake (130 km in length and 30 km in width), surrounded by mountain chains, thick pine forests and lush meadow with grazing yaks and horses. More than 100 small rivers and streams feed the lake with crystal clear water. Water exits the lake through only one river, the Egiin, whose waters eventually reach the Baikal Lake.
