I discovered quite many a moons ago that the best time to visit Hustai National Park to see the takhi or the Przewalski's horses is in winter. Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!

The park is nice and the Ger camp ok (food is poor like almost anywhere outside UB). Good to stay overnight hoping to see the horses early morning with good light and nice colors for pictures.

Spectacular scenery with wild horses called Takhi. If you would like to see the wild horses really close I would recommend go there in the evening.

Khustain (Hustai) Nuruu National Park is an UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. It comprises mainly steppe ecosystems but also some taiga forests and alpine vegetation. Khustai Nuruu aims to preserve threatened forest/steppe ecosystem, which, elsewhere, have been destroyed by over-exploitation. The site is further noted for its successful reintroduction of the endemic Przewalski/Takhi horse (Equus przewalskii). In addition, the quality and variety... More

Great for a visit but if you're short on time, spent it at Terelj National Park instead. If you're lucky though, you might get to see the original Mongolian horses roaming this area.

I would recommend getting to Hustai early in the day in order to have time to see the Preszwalski horses. It was a real thrill to see an animal that I have only seen in a zoo out in the wild running free.

It is reasonably nice as parks go and there is some wildlife to view (particularly the marmots, and black kites around the camp), wildflowers over summer and the views if you walk to the top of any of the hills are nice However, this park is all about the horses! I arrived at Hustai NP in the afternoon - checked... More

The gers (yurts) are warm and cozy. The stoves can be lit for you and kept going through the night. The landscape was wild and beautiful, roads are rough but we saw elk and heard them bugling, and saw several deer stones. Well worth the two hour or so drive from UB.

I'd wanted to see these horses since I was about 6 (that's 53 years). We weren't disappointed. We went with a guide who seemed to know exactly where to go to find them. It's amazing to see the horses portrayed on the cave paintings at Lascaux. These animals were around along with the wooly mammoth.
