  • You only really need a few hours here. But it was so great to see. Up close to animals and beautiful scenery was the highlight of our day. The only thing you really need is a car which can handle snow...  more »
  • Aside from the area itself, you can also visit the Dinosaur Park, Turtle Rock, the Tibetan monastery that is located at the end of the Valley. All very close to combine the visit since it is not easy to get with those just. You can shoot the expenditure if hire excursions on horseback, camel, or you relax in the GER for turistes. For all the other is almost free. There is a crossing before the park where there is a chicken factory... That do not will it miss it!

  • Great place to see some country side of you live in UB
  • Truly spectacular national park. Craggy hillsides and rounded hill tops sprinkled with birch and larch, and other ever-greens.
  • Nice one day excursion from Ulaanbaatar. Lot's of development give it's a national park. It's well worth hiking up one of the surrounding peaks. Beautiful view from the top.
  • Need more improvements but it still quite good place. Stunning surroundings. 1 of best places to hike and rest in wildness. Not far from capital city and it has electricity, hot water and etc.
  • Take a tour there to see something of the countryside ofMongolia! Beautiful!
