Khovsgol Nuur National Park
Khovsgol Nuur National Park covers an area of 838,070 hectares including Lake Khovsgol and its watershed, the Uur river basin and parts of Zuun Sayan Mountain. Khovsgol Nuur is the deepest (up to 262m) lake in central Asia, and the 14th largest source of fresh water-containing 2% of the world’s fresh water. The lake is sacred to local Mongolians, who refer to it as "Mother Sea”.
To the northwest of the Lake lives the Tsaatan minority group. These people use reindeers for transporting supplies, riding and milking and have done so for centuries. Also a unique minority group, called Darkhad live in the Khovsgol region. They are famous for their traditions belonging to the shaman's and shaman fortunetellers. 

Darkhadyn-Khotgor Depression
Darkhadyn Khotgor is a large geological depression, and it is roughly the same size as Khovsgol Lake and was indeed originally formed as a glacial lake. It is 100km in length and located between the beautiful mountains of Khoridol Saridag and Ulaan Taiga. The depression consists of extensive marshes and many small lakes.  

Uran-Togoo Tulga Uul Natural Monument Area
The reserve of extinct volcano Uran Mountain is a pretty good place to take a break on the journey to Khovsgol. It covers 5800-hectare area and lies in the Khutug-Ondor sum of Bulgan province, about 80km northwest of Bulgan city.

Amarbayasgalant Monastery
This monastery is the second most important (after Erdene Zuu monastery) and the most intact architectural complex in Mongolia. It is well worth visiting on the way to or from Khovsgol Nuur and other areas in northern and western Mongolia.
