For countryside dwellers it may seem quite a casual activity, but not for those who escape to the Mongolian wilderness. A boat trip amidst the local pristine untouched nature is truly heavenly. Out of eight scenic lakes found in Mongolia, the serene Lake Khövsgöl overlooked by mountains is the most popular with holidayers. Tourist charter boats are available between May and September, for the rest of the year the water basin is frozen, like all Mo​ngolian waterways.
