NATIONAL PARK MANAGEMENT
- LAKE HOVSGOL NATIONAL PARK
Lake Hovsgol National Park is located in north central Mongolia along the Russia/Mongolia border. Following a boundary expansion in 2011, the park covers approximately 1.2 million hectares and includes the entire Lake Hovsgol watershed, the source of the Eg River, and to the east the upper headwaters of the Uur River, a tributary of the Eg. The Eg and Uur rivers, near their confluence, are home to the world’s largest fresh water trout, Hucho Taimen. The taimen population is threatened throughout its native range and classified as endangered on the Mongolian Red List.
