Terkh White Lake Khorgo Volcano

Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake is an astonishingly beautiful lake with relatively pure fresh water. Torrents of lava issuing from the Khorgo volcano blocked the north and south Terkh Rivers, so forming the dammed lake of Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake at an altitude of 2060 meters above sea level. The lake is 16 km wide, 4-10 meters deep with its deepest point at 28 meters and over 20 kilometers in length. It flooded 61 square km. The lake supports Pike and other fish. The Khorgo lies east of the lake Terkh white Lake and together they are the core of the Khorgo-Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur National Park. A notable geological feature is solidified lava bubbles, which the locals have named “basalt yurts”. Central Mongolia Tour
