Mongolia is located in Northern Asia, bordered by Russia in the north and China in the south, east and west.

Ethnic Mongols comprise approximately 94.9% of the population, Kazakh 5% and Turkic, Chinese and Russians make up the remaining population. Buddhism is major religion in Mongolia with a small number of Muslims, Christians, and Shamans reside in Mongolia. The official language is Mongolian and is spoken by 95% of the population. English is quickly replacing Russian as the most popular language following Mongolian.  Many Mongolians also speak Korean, Japanese, Chinese, German and other western European languages.

Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur- Great White Lake is a lake in the Khangai Mountains in central Mongolia. The Khorgo volcano is located near the eastern end of the lake and the Suman River springs from lake.  There are wonderful hiking opportunities around the north-eastern side of the lake, including  to Khorgo Uul volcano, about 900m above the lake. The lake, which was formed by lava flows from a volcanic eruption many millennia ago, is excellent for swimming, though a bit cold in the morning-try the late afternoon after the sun has warmed it up.  The lake even has what maybe Mongolia’s naturally sandy beach.  You can see dramatic sunsets round off the day perfectly.
