Khangai Forest Steppe

Khangai Forest Steppe

The Khangai takes its name from the Khangai Mountains in central Mongolia. However, this region is also spoken of as being the opposite to “the Gobi” in more general terms, covering all forested areas (including Khan Khentii) and all partly forested areas that there are in the country. These are known as “The Khangai”, which is all of northern Mongolia, inlcuding a couple of thousand rivers draining out north and east.

In the next few pages you will find a further description of the travel destinations within the Hangai region which includes Lake Khuvsgul, the Darhad depression, Amarbayasgalant monastery and the Onon River.

  • Living the mongolian way

    Great place to stay and experience mongolian way of living, no tv, wifi, phone. Just nature and great company of the staff and livestocks of mongolia. The toilet is a hole in the ground covered by a shed. It is clean, but can be smelly to those used to city life. Not hot water supply, inform the staff that you like to hot water half an hour earlier so that they can boil it over camel dung 🙂
