Amazing openness and wildlife to be seen here. Certainly among the most famous are the wild horses native to the area. Best to follow the advice of guides on when and where the horses will be for your best chance to see them. Affordable accommodations at the GER camp by the main entrance. Not really a hiking kind of park.... More

On a whim, hired a driver, and went out to the park. Two things I found useful to ascertain before agreeing on the driver: (i) that the driver could speak a common language - so we would be able to communicate throughout the drive without unfortunate misunderstandings; and (ii) that he knew where to find the wild horses. Loads of... More

Make sure to leave early in the morning from your camp for a chnce to spot the horses. Don't try and drive into the national park without 4WD.

This park is not like a western national park, but definitely worth hitting to try and find the horses. I visited twice and the first time was a miss, but the next visit we saw a good size group of them.

We came through the area as part of a Central Mongolia tour with Golden Gobi hostel. We enjoyed the beautiful landscapes and animal life. The horses were definitely a sight to behold. We were lucky enough to meet alone with some 20 horses, including some newborn ones. More tourists, we saw later, were drawn to another group of horses, which... More

Came here as part of our central Mongolia tour with Sunpath Hostel (highly recommend them). We camped here and saw the really cute wild Takhi horses. Really lovely story behind them.

This is not an easy place to get to but the Hustai National Park is a place that in many ways has saved a piece of history that has shaped cultures, civilizations, and through time has morphed the future. Hustai National Park, the birth place of horses, appropriately named. Think back to how much of history has, in hind sight,... More

We stayed there for a week for a research program- the park is beautiful and there is so much wildlife. We were staying with biologists familiar with the area so we went out early in the morning everyday to see tahki, deer, foxes, marmots, etc. Beautiful landscapes that spread into infinity.

Wild horses are actually quite hard to find unless you go there in the evening and have a guide show you. I would have liked it a lot more had I not already spent so much time in Momgolia. But had already been to so many beautiful spots this was slightly underwhelming
