    Beautiful national park away from paths followed by the tourist buses. Shame to see all its construction underway for high-end hotels, it spoils the landscape.

    If you're in Mongolia, be sure to visit the National Park roller coaster-Terelj. Nature is amazing ... the cliffs have their name ... and Dinosaur Valley-dinosaurs fabulous growth (all neuhozheny). but beautiful and unusual

    So much fun, especially with the mini naadam festival. Going for a hike here is good as well!!

    The most picturesque part of the Mongolian countryside. A bit overrun by Ger camps but otherwise lovely.

    Brilliant scenic park but only if they stop building accommodation soon and concentrate on preserving what they have

    Wonderful place with many traditional Mongolia Ger for accommodation. An experience back to nature.

Where to stay in Ulaanbaatar

The capital city of Ulaanbaatar doesn't disappoint when it comes to its choice of accommodations, with a range of styles and types to choose from. The usual place to look lies to the northeast of the main train station, in the central district that surrounds Chinggis Khaan Square. Luxury and non-luxury chain hotels, some storied older hotels, and a variety of fairly standard options abound across this central district, close to the main urban attractions. Dotted throughout are a number of guesthouses, providing value for money mid-range and budget options, including some offering shared "gers" (traditional Mongolian sleeping tents).
