Ulaan Tsutgalan waterfall in Uvurkhangai Province

Bat-Ulzii soum of Uvurkhangai province has the largest waterfall in Mongolia, Ulaan Tsutgalan. The waterfall is about 5 meters wide, descending from a height of more than 20 meters, about 30 kilometers west of the soum center. Some people call it “Orkhon Waterfall”. But this is a misnomer. This is because the Khangai Mountains, such as the Khyatruun and Ulaan rivers, which originate from the Khyatruun and Ulaan rivers, formed the waterfall when they flowed into the Orkhon River. The Orkhon River flows through the gorge, which is about 20 meters high, about 50 kilometers from Undur Oyster to Ongotsot Gorge.

The waterfall was created when the Red River descended into this gorge. As the river receded, it eroded the bedrock and moved back about 100 meters away from the Orkhon River, creating a depression about 10 meters deep. In addition to Ulaan Tsutgalan, there are four or five large and small waterfalls in Bat-Ulzii soum of Uvurkhangai province, such as “Orkhon waterfall or small tributary”, “Tatuurin waterfall” and “Tsagaan gol waterfall”.
