Khorgo Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur National ParkJanuary 23, 2022
Khorgo-Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur National Park is reported as a National Park in 1994 containing Khorgo terminated fountain of liquid magma, which was begun to be secured by state in 1965. Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake just as its encompassing territory make up the public park of 76,893 hectares land. The National Park is a situated in the area of Arkhangai region, 180km away from the focal town Tsetserleg of the region. Khorgo-Terkhiin National Park is arranged 2100-2500m above ocean level. It is situated between primary mountain scope of Khangai Mountain reach and Tarvagatai Mountain range. The spot is novel as a result of its earth surface with moraine steppe and mountains that made odd and unprecedented scenes and the lake which was made by a well of lava ejection (Terkh White Lake). Magmatic or volcanic exercises occurred nearby during the Miocene, Pliocene, Pleistocene and Holocene.
Terkh White Lake is new watered lake and found 2060 m above ocean level, covering 61 square kilometers, which its length is 16km and width is 6km. Suman waterway begins from Terkh White Lake and joins Chuluut River. The Khorgo wiped out fountain of liquid magma is situated in the eastern piece of the Terkh White Lake and arranged 2178m above ocean level and encompassed by weird stone developments.
Khorgo Volcano in the National Park
As per specialists’ exploration, the Khorgo fountain of liquid magma ejected during the Holocene (11,700 years prior) and its hot magmas gushed through its wide valley and stopped a surge of a waterway in the valley, which shaped the Terkh White Lake eventually. There are around 33 little wiped out volcanoes in encompassing space of the Khorgo and Terkh White Lake. The Khorgo terminated fountain of liquid magma is about 200m tall and its pit profundity is roughly 100m with width of 400m.
The National Park Formation
For land arrangement, the Khorgo-Terkh National Park is involved with traps or basalts of Cretaceous period, stones of Devonian period and volcanic rocks of Quaternary period. Focal piece of Khangai Mountain range is had a place with antiquated crystalized sedimentary (rocks) layer which was framed somewhere down in the earth. These stones are viewed as framed in the consequence of cycle which hot fluid magmas infiltrated the earth surface and chilled off there making hard rocks. Later the stones were lifted up and made encompassing mountains. The mountain sedimentary is generally rhyolite, porphyry, andesite, breccia, sandstone, limestone, and argillite, and so on, of center time of Paleozoic time.
Soil around the lake territory is very damp and made out of dim earthy colored soil and with glade landforms. Mountain steppe region is covered with muggy dull soil. The majority of the space of public park is very damp. It is a result of old frigid gathering which establishes wonderful climate for plants and trees to develop. In the northern space of the mountains Siberian larches (Larix sibirca) and Siberian cedar (Pinus sibirica) timberlands are normal. Tidies and cedars fill in mountain skirts and mountain sides where there is a lot of stickiness. For the plants, boggy and amphibian plants are basic around the Terkh White Lake.
Khorgo Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur National Park Wildlife
The Khorgo-Terkh National Park is busy with various vertebrates. There are around 22 types of vertebrates enrolled nearby, to be specific, wild hog (sus scrofa), red deer, Siberain musk deer, Siberian roe deer, red fox, corsac fox, dim wolf and Mongolian marmot. For creatures of land and water, the territory has Mongolian frog (bufo raddei) and Asian snake (Gloydus Halys) snakes. You should avoid the snake for it is venomous.
Concerning being a heaven of birds, the Terkh White Lake is plentiful with birds and fishes. Jeopardized birds on the planet, for example, swan goose, Cinereous vulture, saker hawk and incredible bustard live here. For transitory birds, bar-headed geese, incredible cormorants, reddish shelducks, regular goldeneyes, tufted ducks, normal mergansers and northern lapwings stop by the lake.
