the lake itself is very clean and big. since that is protected area, the water quality and near around also very nice. i see some person do a big boat visit some to do kayaking. all they enjoy of it. however, since i dont want to drop into the water(a bit cold) and always missed big boat schedule(and feel it a bit expensive). so that i just take walk around part of lake in several days. quite good. better to reserve more days at here to have slow pace visit of such beautiful lake.

Stayed at a Gur camp on the edge of the lake. We were in high season for local tourists and there were many folk around but easy to trek away from crowds.

Got here after a long way on the bad roads of mongolia, and this was amazing the difference between the steppe all the way till the lake, and then in this area a change to many trees (and also many arid places). The atmosphere was calm, and it really felt like the vacation place of the mongols.

I have never ever seen a lake that clear. n a good day you can see the ground up to 40m deep. I is certainly a must see when you are in Mongolia

We spent three nights staying in a ger camp by the Western shore of Khovsgol Lake and loved the idyllic experience. The lake is beautifully serene, especially when viewed from the slopes of the hill behind our camp at sunset. We rode horses along the shore one morning and spent other times reading in the open. This wasn't the pristine outdoor adventure one hears of Mongolia, but it was ideal for our short visit. We were reluctant to leave.

I spent 4 days exploring the Khovsol area. Hiking and riding horses. I felt sad seeing so much plastic, clothes (set aside the ubicuos vodka bottles) thrown away in the middle of the forest by locals. Near Khatgal the shores showed foam and plastic debris. In fact the improvement of the road from Moron has made the place a popular destination during Nadaam (around 100.000 people in 2014). To the north I saw with dismay the ger camps staff cleaning the carpets with the detergent at the lake shores. All together still holding but… My advice: avoid the place at Nadaam dates and go as much as you can to the north area. All around is full of Minimarkets to get supplies, even sleeping bags, but I would recommend to buy in advance any camping gear at Moron’s black market.

Wonderful lake, but somewhat overrated in the guides and tripadvisor. On the western shore, there are plenty of ger camps next to the shore. Too bad there is a dirt road in between the lake and all the sleeping facilities as there is a lot of traffic and even more dust because of this.
The lake offers great views, certainly when climbing to one of the surrounding mountains. Do not estimate the distance!

Further, we do not recommend riding horse next to the lake, as you will just follow the dirt road with lots of traffic.

This is also the place where a lot of Mongolians and Russions come for their holiday break, so it might get noisy (and drunk).
