Site description
Sangiin Dalai Lake is located in north of Ulziit soum. It is surrounded by arid steppe. In wet years, a small river, the Zegst, runs out of the lake to the northwest. In drier years, the river valley supports wet meadow habitat. The lake shore and surrounding area is barren, with sparse vegetation. The wet meadows, however, are excellent habitat for breeding and summering birds.
