Episode Summary

6th YEP Mongolia (2010) - Murun to Lake Hovsgol
AIRED: While writing this, we are sitting on a fallen trunk by Lake Huvsgail after 2 amazing days of adventure. After a 6am wake up on Monday morning, we prepared our equipment and luggage for a 10am flight from Ulaanbaatar to Moren which is located in the far north of Mongolia. We landed at around midday and began the 6 hour journey to our destination of Lake Huvsgail. Despite it taking 6 hours, it was only in fact 175km away but due to the bumpy, rough roads and interesting traffic network it took us a lot longer! This was something that none of us had ever experienced before. During the journey through the Mongolian steppe, we saw Kashmir goats, yaks, eagles, horses, nomadic villages and traditional shrines. We were most impressed by all the culture as none of us had seen something like this before -- these people live extremely different lives to our own and don`t require the luxuries that we too often take for granted. We also visited a saline lake and undertook numerous experiments with Roswitha, testing water salinity, pH, conductivity and learnt a lot about Mongolia`s environments. on: http://www.mikehorn.commoreless
