  • An hour's drive from the capital is this national park. We stayed two nights in a yurt, which is owned by Tiara Tours. It is very small and the views are wonderful. We drove there horse and took a walk to Turtle Rock and a temple near there. A pity that the area actually too full built holiday cottages that actually look out of place in this area and at night it is not really dark lake. But a unique experience.

  • Went twice in a week. One was over a weekend which was freer. Lots of places to visit and especially good for photography. The other was to go horse riding, a day trip. Fantastic experience, the guide...  more »
  • It's not far from Ulaan Baatar, so if possible, go to this place, and try the horse ride. It was fantastic experience.  more »

  • This is one of the most popular tourist destinations/national park for people visiting Mongolia. Prior to leaving the country, it is a must see for absolutely everyone. The trees, the rivers, the lakes, the skies, the wildlife. All serve as representatives of the beauty that Mongolia has to offer.
  • It’s only a short drive from Ulaanbaatar and it is bloody worth it! This national park is absolutely spectacular with no shortage of activities. We loved going fishing along the rivers, hiking, exploring temples as well as horse back riding along the amazing and never ending landscapes. Do yourself a favour, and go!
  • Amazing people and wonderful place , Mongolian steppe's never miss.great hospitality.
  • Wonderful landscapes ! Pretty quite different from the west ones : more mountains, rocks... but also more hotels, wich makes that place less free and savage than the rest of the country.
  • One of natural place, where you can spend more time.
