First off, Hustau NP is completely different scenery to Terelj NP. Don't just pick one. Visit both. The rolling fields and hills make for a dramatic backdrop to see the takhi, the only truly wild horses left in the world. The actually resemble white/cream zebras and very different to standard horses. There is something about seeing wild horses that makes... More

Worth the drive out through the horrible dusty manic construction of the UB industrial suburbs to get to Hustai. Had a great day there with a lovely guide Togosoo and driver Bayaraa from Discover Mongolia. A so-called resort (hmmm) there with basic accommodation (and very basic food), and a very informative video and exhibits about the takhi. (Good shop too).... More

We started our drive out to see the wild horses, and we drove and drove, and finally saw two or three standing far far away. it was a little disappointing, so we got back in the jeep and continued driving. A few minutes later, we came upon a whole herd of the wild horses very close to us. We walked... More

This is a trip from the Capital city. But, it Is rather refreshing. Also, the roads are fairly good for traveling there, which is a plus. If you have time, I recommend this country site for a one night stay..

2-3 hours drive outsider of Ulaanbaatar is this amazing national park......mid July saw myriad of wildflowers, incredible grasses, small sand dunes, sightings of marmots and brief view of wild deer, butterflies and many birds (so enjoyable to sit quietly in such a wide open space and wait for nature to come to you!). Of course the highlight is learning about... More

Thanks to our fantastic guide, we took a picnic. took some wine, beers & snacks and settled in for the sunset show of Przewalskii's horses. wild mountain deer and car loads of passing tourists looking for both but missing everything. Strongly recommend that you go with a local expert. At the park entrance there is a small museum, shop and... More

Not difficult to see the white horses if you go at the right time (morning or evening). Dirt Road (10km each way) to get to the park and in the park is quite rough - specially after rain. Perhaps best to go in a jeep or 4 wheel drive.

Really enjoyed my visit to this park. It is managed by an NGO and has a lot of wildlife. We saw plenty of marmots as well as a herd of Mongolian wild horses.

Like others in Mongolia, Hustai national Park does not have any specific must do, but is a place to see in itself for its natural beauty. Known for being a preserve for the wild horses, you can take many a hike up to get a better view from the hills near the tourist ger center - but during the day.... More
