Photo of the Day: Lake Healing in Avarga Toson, Mongolia

Mineral water lake in Avarga Toson, about 200 kilometers south of Ulaanbaatar city, Mongolia in the Summer 2008. The water and mud from this region are used for treating various illnesses."I would like to share this picture because it depicts a certain nostalgia due to the colors, showing that in a fast moving and global world today there are still places that have an inner peacefulness, where you just forget everything." (Khulan Davaadorj, Asia Society Member)
