Devliin Aral (Island) National Reserve

1185

This nature reserve on the south side of Achit Lake and neighbors Uvs Aimag in the eastern part of Bayan-Olgii covers 10,300 hectares. Devliin Aral provides a sanctuary for the very rare ring-necked pheasant, snowcock, wild boar, and beavers, as well as habitat for many species of migratory birds. Much of the park is heavily forested. Visitors to the park can go hiking, horse riding, fishing, nature and bird watching, and enjoy cultural experiences with nomads. The best times to go are during in late spring or autumn when the lake is full of migratory birds. The park should be avoided from mid June to end of July due to large swarms of mosquitoes. Many tours will spend a night in the park to take in its spectacular sunrise and enjoy a warm swim. Regular transportation is not available to this park, though jeeps and guides can be hired. It is 100 km from Olgii off the road to Ulaangov.
