Naiman Nuur (Eight Lakes) was formed by volcanic eruption centuries ago. Located at 2400 metres above sea level, between towering mountains of Khangai mountain range, Eights Lakes are only reachable by horse or foot trekking. There are literally eight lakes in distance of 500m to 3 km from each other. Locals say all of them are connected underground.
Covered by beautiful cedar and larch forest, the area is home to many wild species such as wolves, red deer, boar and more. It also forms part of the Khuisiin Naiman Nuur Nature Reserve.
35 km southeast from Orkhon Waterfall, Naiman Nuur can easily fit your trip route if you are traveling through central Mongolia. But keep in mind that you will be trekking through mountains and forest for quite some time when there is no internet or phone service.
