The waterfall is situated in the historically significant Orkhon valley, whose river flows an incredible 1120km journey to the north before it joins the mighty Selenge River. It cascades from an impressive height of 20 meters and its width is 10 meters. The waterfall was formed by a unique combination of volcanic eruptions and earthquakes about 20,000 years ago. The fall is naturally impressive after a heavy rain.
Ulaantsutgalan waterfall is the biggest waterfall in Mongolia.
