We discuss the results of study of the Holocene seismic activity of the Hustai Fault zone, Central Mongolia. Applying seismological methods (remote, trenching, geophysics), we have revealed signs and determined the quantitative parameters of the paleoearthquake that led to the fault dissection at 3–5.5 ka. The high seismic potential of the Tola earthquake focus zone and its proximity to Ulaanbaatar confirm earlier estimates of the seismicity of the capital of Mongolia, 8 points on the MSK-64 scale.
