2 Day Gun-Galuut Nature Reserve with HomeStay at Nomadic Family
Gun Galuut is well worth a visit. Gun Galuut Nature Reserve is a local protected area in Tuv province, 130km east of UB, for conservation of global threatened species. It comprises of 3 zones: tourism, limited, and core zones, which are the ecosystem of steppe, rocky mountain, small lakes, river, streams and wetland, and it is about 20000 hectare. With the help of the local ranger, there is a good chance that you will spot argali sheep. Apparently the very best time to see them is during the rutting season when they only have one thing on their minds! There is other good wildlife around too and we saw plenty of marmot as well as several foxes and White-Naped Crane. The area is the state combined from diversity of ecosystem although it owns comparatively small area. The harmonized complex of high mountains, steppes, rivers, lakes and wetlands as well are kept enough as its original condition.
We are leaving the city early in the morning and we can get there within a couple of hours. It is important for us to see as much as greatest historic and true nomadic lifestyle outside the city within short period of time.
