URAN TOGOO VOLCANO - HOME OF BEST AIRAG

TRAVEL TO URAN TOGOO VOLCANO - HOME OF BEST AIRAG

Location: 530 km northwest of Ulaanbaatar in the Bulgan town.
Features: On the way from Khutag-Undur soum of the Bulgan provinces to Khuvsgul province, there is an extinct volcano Uran Togoo. As the crater is cracked on the northeast, south, and northwest sides it resembles a trivet. The volcano was active 20 to 25 thousand years ago. A legend says that food, which comes from an area behind Uran Togoo mountain, is particularly delicious as God dropped holy water there. The legend also claims that fermented mare’s milk from the front of the mountain is delicious because God dropped milk there. Inside the Uran Togoo crater there is a 1.5 meter deep lake. Soil around the lake is nutrients rich, so you will see dense forests with larch, aspen, poplar, and birch. Many medicinal plants, such as wild onion, thistle, tulip, roseroot, cumin, and astragal grow there.
