Crowned one of the four holy peaks surrounding the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar, Bogdkhan Mountain was officially declared a sacred mountain reserve in 1778. Evidence of its protected status dates back to the 13th century.
Capped by the 7,440 foot holy Tsetseegun peak, Bogdkhan Mountain, lies to the south of Ulaanbaatar. According to Mongolia’s National Red List, threatened animal living on the reserve include the critically endangered red deer, which has seen an 80 percent regional decline over the past three generations because of exploitation and habitat loss; the endangered Mongolian gazelle, Eurasian elk and Siberian marmot; and the vulnerable sable.
