Khovd, Mongolia

You’ll find Khovd clutching the roadways as they weave north-westward to Olgii and the windswept, snow-doused heart of the Altai Mountains. It’s a charming place with all the amenities you could need as a traveler: hospitals; shops; earthy guesthouses that won’t break the bank. But it’s more than that too – it’s also the gateway to the great waters of Khar Us Lake. These spread out under the snowy peaks of Jargalant Mountain, offering trails for horse riders and marshlands laden with gulls.

You can also go and find petroglyphs marking the caves of Baatar Khairhan, or sip healing waters from the local mineral springs in the hills.
