2-3 hours drive outsider of Ulaanbaatar is this amazing national park......mid July saw myriad of wildflowers, incredible grasses, small sand dunes, sightings of marmots and brief view of wild deer, butterflies and many birds (so enjoyable to sit quietly in such a wide open space and wait for nature to come to you!). Of course the highlight is learning about... More

Thanks to our fantastic guide, we took a picnic. took some wine, beers & snacks and settled in for the sunset show of Przewalskii's horses. wild mountain deer and car loads of passing tourists looking for both but missing everything. Strongly recommend that you go with a local expert. At the park entrance there is a small museum, shop and... More

Not difficult to see the white horses if you go at the right time (morning or evening). Dirt Road (10km each way) to get to the park and in the park is quite rough - specially after rain. Perhaps best to go in a jeep or 4 wheel drive.

Really enjoyed my visit to this park. It is managed by an NGO and has a lot of wildlife. We saw plenty of marmots as well as a herd of Mongolian wild horses.

Like others in Mongolia, Hustai national Park does not have any specific must do, but is a place to see in itself for its natural beauty. Known for being a preserve for the wild horses, you can take many a hike up to get a better view from the hills near the tourist ger center - but during the day.... More

Stayed at Moilt camp as part of graduate class study abroad. The sights are breathtaking and seeing the Takhi's made it all worthwhile!

Beautiful scenery. the Park is HUGE. Hard to find/see the wild horses. If that's what you are going for, don't be disappointed if don't see. Maybe go 2 days and drive/look in different parts of the park.

A once-in-a-lifetime chance to see these horses, once thought to be extinct, in their native habitat. A couple of hours from Ulaan Baatar by "interesting" roads, but worth it.

We were on a birding trip and camped outside of the park for a night. Spent most of a day in it. Birding was good and the mammal viewing was excellent especially for the horses and red deer. Roads, as are typical in Mongolia, were less than great, but a lot better than some we were on.

We went there in February, a sunny day. It was beautiful with fresh snow from the day before. One of the only place where you can see wild white horses reintroduced in the park 20 years ago. So good to breathe pure fresh air when you come from the smoky UB...
