The magnificent Tsambagarav Mountain, standing at a height of 4208 meters (13,737 ft), is located on the border of Bayan-Olgii and Hovd Aimags. It dominates the 110,960-hectare Tsambagarav Uul National Park, renowned for its breathtaking landscapes and diverse wildlife. Within the park, you’ll find numerous glaciers, rocky gorges, glacial lakes, and a remarkable 7-meter waterfall, as well as intriguing cultural relics like deer stones, balbal (standing stones), and the presence of Kazakh and Uriankhai nomads. The park is a sanctuary for many rare and endangered species, including Argali sheep, Ibex, Snow Leopard, Rock Ptarmigan, and Altai Snowcock.

For adventurers seeking to conquer Tsambagarav Mountain and its smaller counterpart, Tsast Uul (4193 M), proper gear such as crampons and ropes are essential. However, other nearby peaks can be explored by hiking, allowing you to immerse yourself in the park’s awe-inspiring beauty. Tsambagarav Uul National Park is an ideal destination for various activities such as hiking, horse and camel riding, mountain climbing, fishing, eagle hunting, as well as cultural and nature sightseeing.

If you wish to experience the local way of life, consider staying with the hospitable Kazakh and Uriankhai nomads who offer family stays. There is a ger camp near the park, as well as a small summer village just outside its boundaries. During the summer season, a few nomadic herders also reside within the park. The majority of Altantsogts village relocates 30 km south to be closer to the summer grazing area on the slopes of Tsambagarav.

Transportation to Tsambagarav Uul National Park can be arranged through local tour guides or by taking advantage of the twice-weekly shuttle service provided by Blue Wolf to the ger camp inside the park. This shuttle operates on Wednesdays and Sundays during the summer tourist season. The park itself is situated 75 km east of Olgii and can be reached by following the road to Hovd.
