Khar Lake

Khar Lake, a delightful yet rough road

Khar Nuur is a fresh water lake at an elevation of 2.537m (8,323ft) above the sea level, located in Bayan-Ölgii Province in western Mongolia.

The road to the lake is totally unpaved. It’s a long and challenging road through rugged landscapes. 4x4 vehicle required. The road is full of steep and sudden turns and countless bumps of varying sizes and impacts. The drive offers dramatic views. Starting from Khushoot (Bayan-Ölgii Province), the road to the lake is 48.8 km (30 miles) long.
