It is the second largest city of the aimag, located in a northern valley, wedged between the Khangaï and Bulnayn ranges. The local economy is based on the timber industry, thanks to the vast forests that cover the surrounding mountains. The city has an airport where planes from Ulaanbaatar to Olgiy stop once a week to fill up with kerosene. Tosontsengel can therefore be regarded as a convenient departure base to the Khövsgöl or Uvs regions. Tosontsengel holds the record for one of the coldest municipalities in the country, with a frigid -52.9 °C recorded on a January day.
