Great park to view the Takhi horses

The park has around 320 takhi/przewalski horses and offers a great scenery to spot them. We were lucky/ after only 2 km we saw around 25 horses on the hill.

Long, bumpy ride to a not particularly scenic part of Mongolia. We saw horses from a distance but didn't think the grief to glory ratio was worth it.

As others recommended, we went early in the morning with a tour guide. We left Ulaanbaatar at 6am because we did not want to stay at the park as we had already stayed in gers during our horse trekking in the steppe. We saw two herds of the horses with many foals. Guide said that herd must have a very... More

We travelled from Ulaanbaatar to see the wild horses. I would recommend either getting there early in the morning or at dusk when they come down from the hills to drink. We were there in the middle of the day and could make out small shapes of horses and that was with binoculars. A good option would be to stay... More

Hustai National Park has done some amazing work with the Takhi and it is great to see them in the national park. Although we didn't stay long, the facilities were good and staff were friendly. We went on a brief horse ride and the horses were calm and reliable.

While the scenery is quite beautiful with rolling hills the reason you come here is to see the rare wild horses that were reintroduced after going extinct in the wild. Unfortunately we only saw one but enjoyed our visit nevertheless.

We were lucky to spot a herd of 20 takhi within a few minutes, but I hear that they can be hard to spot. A gorgeous place, nonetheless - definitely worth a visit.

WHY to easily see and photograph the only true living wild horse, the Przewalski horse, Equus przewalskii, or “takhi” in Mongolian, in the wild, and with luck, other wildlife, flowers, and of course landscapes. I knew from documentaries that Przewalski horses had been re-introduced in the wild in Mongolia and China, but I didn’t know where and had no clue... More

This place might be a bit too spoiled by tourism for my tastes. There's an expensive tourist ger camp by the entrance and no good spots for camping on my own. The entrance fee here is also way more expensive than in other nature reserves in Mongolia. Still, I was able to see takhi - the Mongolian wild horse here.... More

We waited wild horses until 6pm in valley of Hustai. Around that time wild horses came down from mountain because of drink water. They look beautiful and I loved Mongolian nature so much.
