an ovoo is a shamanistic power place and is often found at the top of mountains or in high places, throughout Mongolia.
ovoos are usually a simple pile of stones or made from wood bearing a few blue silk scarves..
 
when travelling, it is custom to stop and circle an ovoo three times in clockwise direction, in order to have a safer journey.
usually, rocks are picked up from the ground and added to the pile, but in this region you usually can’t find rocks.

  yak carriage in front of the khuvsgul lake

nomadic people use yak carriages to carry the gers, when moving with their herd.

the khuvsgul lake is located in the northwest of mongolia near the border to russia.
it holds almost 70% of mongolia’s fresh water and belief me: this lake is very cold,
also in the summer. the lake is remarkable clean and has really blue water.
