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

This park is a couple of hours drive from Ulaanbaatar but is well worth the visit. We arrived late afternoon which was perfect to head into the park with a ranger. We saw lots of wild horses, wild deer and yaks. The grasses were quite dry and yellow but the views over the Steppes were amazing. We stayed in the... More

Beautiful countryside, a wonderful place. We loved our stay here, searching for and finding the wild horses. We stayed at the ger camp and enjoyed horse riding in the park.

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.
