Bulgan province is situated in the North, in the territory of the Khangai mountain forest steppe zone. Bulgan province borders on the North with the Russian Federation. It was established in 1938, and the administrative center is Bulgan city, 330 kilometers from Ulaanbaatar at an altitude of 981 meters above sea level. The province has an estimated population of 67,300 inhabitants. The ethnic groups comprise Khalkh, Buryat and Russians.
The Bulgan province 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.
Soil is sandy with semi-desert features in the South of the province. A small mountain range, the Biirengiin Nuruu, bisects the province, and though it only reaches a maximum altitude of 2058m, it provides plenty of lush habitat for wild animals and livestock. High mountains include: Bulgan Khan Uul, Buregkhangai, Dulaankhan.
Mongolia's largest river, the Selenge Gol, crosses the aimag's north, and the Orkhon and Tuul rivers meander around the southern parts. Mixed forest occupies about 30 percent of the aimag's territory. Elks, bears, deer, white antelopes, boars, musk deer, lynxes, squirrels, marmots inhabit the area. Bulgan province is rich in beautiful places, such as;
Ovgon Khiid Monastery - It was built in 1660 and destroyed by the armies of Zungar Galdan Bochigtu, a rival of Zanabazar's in 1640. About 10 monks reside here in the summer months. The head lama is a charming woman who professes soothsaying abilities.
