Guchin-Us (Mongolian: Гучин-Ус, Thirty water) is a sum (district) of Övörkhangai Province in southern Mongolia. It had an estimated 2,260 inhabitants in 2008.[1]

The town of Arguut, 104 km from the Province capital Arvaikheer, is the administrative center of the sum, but mostly it is called "Guchin Us" as well.[2]

There are several prehistoric rock paintings and buddhist inscriptions in the nordeast of the town, close to the unpaved road to Arvaikheer.
