I visit Terelj National Park several times each year and i just love it as you go over the hill and then head down to the park entrance, the views are just stunning. I normally stay at Terelj Lodge and have also played the local golf course a few times too. Highly recommended as it's only an hours drive outwith... More

We spent a few days in Terelj National Park with our guide, Joe, from Selena Travel. The park is located close to Ulaanbaatar and is an easy drive. My favorite memories from the park seeing the different rock formations (Turtle Rock, etc.) and driving through fields in search for a nomadic family. All-in-all, this is a great place to spend...

This really is a must-see, and a quick 90 minutes from UlaanBaatar. Beautiful, beautiful park. Good for picnics by the river. Some good places to stay if you want more than a day trip.

It's not too far from Ulaanbaatar but it's definitely worth the trip. Once inside you will want a driver or a horse or something, everything is quite spread out. Definitely take the walk up to the temple and read the very contemplative signs on the path. It's meditative and peaceful. Beautiful even in fall

Terelj national park offers some great craggy mountainous scenery close to UB and is worth a visit. Staying at some of the smaller resorts is affordable and many are well appointed with meals served. Beautiful in winter with wild horses galloping through snowy timbered areas. An easy way to see some of wilds of Mongolia not too far out of... More

Horse ride from the horse station to the temple. Horses are pony size in Mongolia and feel free to roam there! The kids there could ride since very young and if you do not know how to ride, they could just pull your horse around, so just sit back and relax.

It was great place for walking in the valley. Horse riding was too much in the cold weather. The statue wasn't attractive as I expected. The hostel owner described it really well and I expected it much better.
