Great White Lake

7 nights & 8 days

Day 1
Kharkhorum, the ancient capital and Erdenezuu monastery
Kharkhorum was founded by Genghis Khan in the year 1220. It became the capital of the Great Mongol Empire about ten years later and was then destroyed by the troops of the Chinese Ming dynasty in 1388. The Buddhist monastery of Erdenezuu, probably the oldest and still today existing of Mongolia, consisting of 108 stupas, was severely damaged in 1688 due to one of the numerous internal wars between the tribe of the Dzungars and that of the Khalkha. Together with the Orkhon valley, it became a UNESCO heritage site in 2004.
Day 2
Waterfalls (horseback riding)
In 2 and a half million years of volcanic eruptions, the lava has created thick layers of basalt on which the Orkhon river flows today, also managing to create very suggestive natural waterfalls.
Day 3
Tsenkher hot spring
The thermal springs of Tsenkher have high healing properties, in particular, great benefits are found on pathologies that affect the nervous system and the joint system. To make the spring accessible to travelers and visitors in general, bathrooms have been set up with a water temperature that is less hot and more bearable for the human body. Everything is surrounded by a splendid scenery consisting of luxuriant mountain forests and a clear sky dotted with stars that you can admire even in the middle of the night, comfortably lying inside the thermal baths.
