This is a longish drive - around 2 hrs - from UB and there's no guarantee that the main attraction, Przewalski’s horses, will be around when you get there. But if they are, this is a wonderful opportunity to see the only remaining truly wild horse in the world.

It's a large nature preserve and intentionally kept wild, a good thing. You're not allowed to wander around on your own and the wildlife you see will entirely depend on luck and being there at the right time. Understand from visiting the information center at the tourist ger camp in the reserve that it has a lot of wildlife -... More

Wild horses, a herd of yak that we were 20 feet away from, where in the world can you be in such an unspoiled place! It's not easy to get to, and when you arrive, it's another 5-7 km to the place where horses roam. Best time is near sunset. It's an unforgettable experience.

We came here as our last stop in the tour and we were quite tired, and also expected to see no special local animals (in Europe, is quite hard to see in NP close to the car road), but, surprisingly, is so easy to spot the prehistoric horses, we rode for 15 minutes into the park and they were 100m...

the park is remote actually. i have different opinion from the others. maybe it's because that the timing i visited there is not high season. it's a pity that the white horses are getting rare and rare. they are quite afraid of people. maybe it's better to leave them alone and grow. on the other hand, mongolian people they do...

I came here to see the Mongolian wild horses, and thanks to my guide's making sure we got out of bed early, I was not disappointed.

This place is located very close to Ulaanbaatar (just 1 hour drive) but this is the place where you can see the wild nature of central part of Mongolia. Under the protection of the government and related NGO`s here are living wild horses (Takhi) and other wild animals. Besides of the wild animals you can find here beautiful sceneries of... More

It's a long drive into the park. And another long drive to see the wild horses, but well worth both drives. At the ger camp, the gift shop opens early and stays open late and is a very nice gift shop.When you are looking at the horses also notice the fascinating flying insects in the grass. They look like grasshoppers... More

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
