Nice place, high contrast to the Steppe

I enjoyed my trip to Gorkhi-Terelj park. It was a beautiful place. Great mountains and stone, wonderful landscape. We had a nice meal at the big Hotel there.

We made a one day trip to escape the City. It is gorgeous! At that time the trees where yellow and the air was clear and fresh. (Octrober) One can visit the turtle rock or the Monastary or just have a picknick at the River. We enjoyed it a lot.

This is a huge, breath-taking national park. As well as the ger/yurt camps which organise various activities, such as horse-riding, the same can be done at the small village, Terelj, which also has small shops, accommodation, etc. We travelled to the park by public transport, the bus from Ulaan-Baatar leaves from a bus stop on the south side of Peace...

We stayed in the Yurts in the winter, the temperature is minus 37 or lower. It is beautiful, you need to keep the wood burner stoked inside but it is so warm almost too warm at times. The scenery is sensational and very few visitors in the winter. Of course you cannot do the horseback riding or climbing, but walking... More

A beautiful national park with many things to see. You can horseback ride, se camels, the kingis Kahn monument, and watch clean and happy cattle walk freely. Sleep in a girt and watch the 100000000 stars.

Terelj is closer to Ulaanbaatar city. It is suitable for short trip. It has very beautiful natural landscape and stones are varoius shaped. Also you can see one of the buddhism temple and you can spends your time near the riverside. In winter time we were staying tourist camp and sledding with my young brother and sisters. They are really... More

I have heard you can take a bus to this park, but we didn't have the time to try to sort it out. So we booked with a tour agency at our hostel that provided transportation to and from the park, as well as a night's stay in a yurt. We had a good time and enjoyed getting to know... More

Is ver close from the ulaanbatar city, but you can just get there by private car because the public transportation in mongolia is not good The best part is the temple on the peak of the hill

The park is very close to Ulambatar and you can go by public transport, there are hotels, camping and nomadic tents to stay with varying prices. The tents are incredible and usually you can become more isolated what the charm of Mongolia. you can see many eagles, marmots, Mongolian horses even camels.

only an hour or two (depending on how far you go up the road), Terelj National Park is a great place for a day or mulit-day trip. Many places to stay (ger camps).
