Baruunturuun (Mongolian: Баруунтуруун) is a Sum in Uvs Province of Mongolia.

It is the heartland of grain production of the province, and lies on the bank of the Turuun River. The sum is also one of the most populous areas in the province. MIAT Mongolian Airlines flew to Baruunturuun directly from Ulan Bator until 2005, but stopped due to a plane shortage. Although the Baruunturuun Airport is not operational at the moment, it is considered the secondary airport of the province.
