Khangai Mountains introduction
The Khangai Mountain Range is Mongolia's watershed, the source of the mighty Selenge River that flows northwards into Lake Baikaal. Its picturesque alpine scenery rises swiftly from the surrounding pastureland, with the highest peak, Otgontenger (13,000 feet), under perpetual snow and glacial ice. The range is reputed to hold a wealth of undiscovered gems and minerals - let's hope that they, and the landscape, remain undisturbed by the western world.
