If you ever need to spend a night at Bulgan, you may want to check out a lovely yurt camp on the edge of town. We stayed there several times, as we'd struck up a friendship with the young managers of the site.
It's a lively spot, as Bulgan's a popular overnight stay for Mongolian travellers and tourists. There's a constant flow of people and a social vibe. Unlike other, smaller yurt camps that I'd visited, this one has cold beer! The majority of guests were Mongolian and they partied all night before heading on their way the following morning.
If you're there during summer and want to avoid the hoards of tourists in Khövsgöl, then Bulgan is the perfect alternative. You can easily reach Erdenet , the Selenga River and the north of Hutag-Öndör as far as the village of Teshig. The chaotic route that leads to the village is stunning, the Mongolians adorable and Egg River magnificent.
