  • Territory - 18,803 square miles (48,700 sq. km)
  • Center - Bulgan town, located 205 miles (330 km) from
  • Number of somons - 16.
  • Bulgan aimag was established in 1938.
  • Population - 67,300.

Bulgan aimag is situated in the North, in the territory of the Khangai mountain forest steppe zone. Bulgan aimag borders on the North with the Russian Federation. Bulgan aimag is a curious mixture: the south is dry grassland and the north is green and has enough forest to support a small timber industry; scattered in between are about 50,000 hectares of wheat and vegetable crops - Mongolia's agricultural heartland - and Erdenet, Mongolia's largest copper mine. The ethnic groups comprise Khaikh, Buryat and Russians.

Bulgan. Population 13,000. Elevation 1208m. A small aimag capital, the city of Bulgan has long been known to foreigners as an overnight stop midway between Ulaanbaatar and the ever-popular Khovsgol Nuur. If you've been traveling in central or southern Mongolia, Bulgan city may impress you with its conifers, log cabins and absence of gers, though there's little reason to linger.

  • The Aimag Museum on the main street has some information on obscure sights in the aimag, a display on J. Gurragcha, Mongolia's first man in space, and some interesting old photos. The Museum of Ancient Things (Ugsaatny Zizuyn Salvar) has a few ethnographical exhibits.
  • Dashchoinkhorlon Khiid. Like most monasteries in Mongolia, this one (built in 1992) replaces the original monastery, Bangiin Khiiree, which was destroyed in 1937. About 1000 monks lived and worshipped at Bangiin Khiiree before they were arrested and, presumably, executed. The remains of several stupas from the old monastery complex can be seen in the surroundings.
    The modern monastery of Dashchoinkhorlon Khiid contains statues of Tsongkhapa and Sakyamuni and features a painting of the old monastery layout. About 30 monks now reside there.
  • There are a couple of obscure historical monuments around Bulgan. About 20km South of Bulgan, just East of Orkhon are seven standing deer stones, so called because the stones are carved with reindeers and other animals. The stones, known as Seeriyn Adigyn Bugan Khoshoo, mark what are thought to be Neolithic grave sites. About 25km North of Bulgan is a Imtall Turkic balbal (Turkic grave markers), known as Zunn Turuuniy Khun Chuluu.
