The lake is located in the Gusinoozyor Basin between two ranges of the Selenga Highlands, about120 kilometers (75 mi) southwest of Ulan-Ude, the capital of the republic. It is close to the border with Mongolia. The town of Gusinoozyorsk is located on the northeastern shore of the lake. Tamchinsky Datsan, one of the ancient Buddhist monasteries of Russia, is located on the opposite bank, in the village with the same name as the lake, Gusinoye Ozero.
