A small brackish lake (220ha) and associated lakes in eastern Mongolia within a unique landscape combining wetlands, steppe and sand dunes, located in the strip between the south steppe and Gobi zones. This lake district is based in the wind-scoured lowlands of extinct volcanoes and known as Dariganga.
It is of great importance for breeding and stop-over waterbirds, e.g., White-naped Crane (Grus vipio), Swan Goose (Anser cygnoides), and Great Bustard (Otis tarda), all vulnerable or endangered in the the IUCN Red Book.
