Title Zavkhan Province
(from Freebase)
Zavkhan (Mongolian: Завхан) is one of the 21 aimags (provinces) of Mongolia, located in the west of the country. Its capital is Uliastai. The aimag is named after the Zavkhan river. The Zavkhan aimag population growth stopped in 1994, then migration out of the aimag (approx. 40,000 in 1995-2005) reduced its population to the end of 1979 level. In 2005, the aimag was home to 2,1 million head of livestock, among them 1,03 million sheep, 861,000 goats, 107,000 cattle and yaks, 101,000 horses, and 6,300 camels. The old Uliastai Airport has two unpaved runways and is located close to the city, but it has no regular flights operating. Since 2002, the Donoi Airport (or "New Uliastai Airport") with one unpaved runway is located about 25 km west of the city and gets served by regular flights from and to Ulan Bator. - The aimag capital
