The traveling distances was a challenge without a compass. The driver is superb, being able to travel without proper road signs, all dependable on his experience. Every day is a new experience in this vast, nomadic and varied scenery from plains to mountains to Gobi Desert.

For those who like hiking, this is a place to go, not far from UB (a bit more than 1h) We spent 2 days hiking which was suffis. If you want to stay more, might be good to try some horse tours

If you only have a day, I suppose a trip to the Terelj National Park is as good as any place for those into nature. You'll get a chance to ride horses, climb up to a buddhist monastery, and climb a rock. Along the way, most tours will stop at the Ghengis Khan statue- it's touristy but why not! The... More

Beautiful national park one hour from UB, makes you feel like you are in Switzerland. It is a place to relax, there's a Turtle rock, a temple and nomadic family to visit. You can also do horse riding. It is not a place to spend more than one night at. Because of its proximity from UB, there are also many... More

Area in danger of overdevelopment with hotels etc so see it now! Lots of Ger camps which make for more authentic stay.

This parc is a must see. Beautiful views and wild animals are common. Make sure to sleep at least one night in a ger. We took a horse trip around a part of the huge parc, a convenient way of transportation leading you to some hidden places. Many agencies offer rather expensive tours; ours (with Alpha Team Tours) was definitely... More

We went to the buuviet ger which was a really great place to start hikking around. It is the last Ger of a serie and ecofriendly. Landscape are awesome and quiet. Food and shower were great but note that you get only warm water when it has been a sunny day!

This park located 1 hour driving way from the Ulanbator city. If you dont have enough time to travel in Mongolia, its right choice to discover wildlife and Nomad's lifestyle within short time. Easy to find out any "GER" tourist camp and price is about 30-50$ per night.

My party arrived in Terelji at the end of a 10 days tour through Central Mongolia. Compared to the other places we'd traveled through, Terelji was wetter, cooler and had more trees - all good points if you are traveling during the hot months of summer. There are family operated Ger hostels on the park grounds, and we lodged with... More

This is a good way to see part of Mongolia. The vast grassland and mountain ranges. The road is OK on the highway but not so OK when we had to drive on the grassland. Better to use a suitable vehicle to cut down the bumps.
