On the northern slopes of the Khangai Mountains lies Tsetserleg. It’s a bustling town of makeshift houses of every color, a market with everything under the sun and streets filled with horses and yaks. If you’re ever in need of a wolf, this is the place to come. Shamanist tradition in Mongolia proscribes the consumption of different parts of the wolf to cure certain ailments. Eat the (raw) heart to alleviate a heart condition, the brain if you’ve had a stroke, etc.
Mine was only a short stay there, but I liked it. To the south of Tsetserleg, is the area known as the “Eight Lakes”, a beautiful region of mountains, green valleys and …eight lakes. It was here I learn to fill spare socks with stones heated from the bonfire and use them as foot warmers.
You’ll also find the Khorgo volcano in this region. It’s a massive inactive crater, 200m in diameter and about 80m deep.
