Take a day tour out of UB and visit Terelj national park. It is beautiful with green hills, rivers, mountains, temple, which was a bit crowded, but still worth visiting. On our day of visit it was raining for an hour but after the rain the sun came out and we could enjoy the beauty of very picturesque nature. We... More

Beautiful night sky with no light pollution, saw many shooting stars. Try and stay with a family in the Gers to get the full experience.

The tourist camps are endless. Any horizon you chose you'll see one. But it is okay and a mere 2 hours drive from the capital. Skipping meals saves money, but the meals are really good. Do not expect to sleep according to local standards (if you wish to do so), this is tourist stuff, but really fine.

I fell in love with Mongolia in this national park. It's an extremely beautiful part of the world. I would definitely recommend spending a few nights in one of the ger camps here too.

Get out of Ulaanbaatar for a day or overnight trip and definitely visit Terelj NP. The scenery is astounding and make sure to stop by the massive 40m high Chinggis Khaan Statue on a horse on the way. We visited Turtle Rock (which does look like a turtle) and rode horses there for an hour. Riding through the fields was... More

Beautiful scenery at top of the temple. easy to go there, green open spaces, rivers, mountains, rocks. Nothing to dislike about this nature! The turtle rock and the temple were great sights, but there are too many camps. just choose the best one. I have been in "Melkhii Khad" camp right behind the Turtle Rock. Service was little bit poor... More

Beautiful, easy to get to, green open spaces, just lovely. Nothing to dislike about this place! The turtle rock and the temple were great sights, but just sitting outside our ger enjoying the scenery was the best part.

Had the pleasure of seeing this clear clean lake. Worth the trip! Lots of wildflowers, crickets and fish in the area. We were told to pay respect to the Lake by wetting a part of your head with your hands and bowing.

Amazing scenery - valleys, rivers, mountains, incredible rock formations (including of course the famous Turtle Rock), wildflowers, chipmunks, the inevitable horses/camels/sheep/ goats, walks and hiking trails. Do yourself a favour and allocate at least 2 days/1 night here.......visit a nomad family, go horse riding, climb a hill to watch sunrise.......just a fabulous spot only 2hr drive from Ulaanbaatar. Wide choice... More
