  • Pristine Countryside in the steps of Mongolia. It is truly another land one that is hard to describe. Clean air which is cool at night. Massive rock formations which are great for rock climbing even for a novice. Good hiking. Excellent for horseback riding.
  • Best adventure ever in this park. It feels like you have escaped from the city and the only things you have left are animals and trees.
  • Phenomenal. I will be back.
  • Beautiful nature, fresh air, relaxing summer!
  • Quiet and relaxed!
