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

The park offers a variety of things to do from rock climbing, horseback riding and visiting native homes. One of the best sites was a meditation temple. Staying in a ger was also a highlight. Mongolia is so beautiful and was a happy surprise.

Clean, great for hiking. Meadows of wild flowers. We found lot of Eidelweiss growing wild. Road to the park is probably one of the better ones leading out of the city. Easy to find ger camps. Turtle rock is good for hiking. Nice hike to the Buddhist temple.

Saw some wild horses too! Amazing to see them from afar. Wish we could spend more time there to see other wild life and wish we could have gotten closer!

We went to Terelj on our first full day in Mongolia and it was a good introduction...appalling traffic in UB gives way to nothing at all in a few miles, a few gers and then this monastery. The scene was set as we queued to pay at the park entrance; a guy was slaughtering a sheep behind one of the... More

An amazing place with outstanding scenery. The wildflowers were spectacular, the grass pure, stunning rock formation and the terrain comfortable.

Maybe eat lamb every day is a little greasy and cloying, but the rice is delicious, There is cold and bearable in mid-October. The full moon was the best part of my stay, as well as having a dromedary inside my tenda to wake me up

My tour group went horseback riding in the park and visited Turtle Rock. The area was lovely, smelled wonderful and is very reminiscent of my home state of Colorado.
