This is one the most beautiful and scenic national park just 2 hours away from Ulaan Baatar. The Gers are set in scenic settings...amidst the Granite Rocks.

An incredible national park very accessible from Ulanbaatar. Well worth the trip anytime of the year. Visited during winter and the park was pristine, highly recommend dog sledding or horse riding tours with Expat Adventure Travel
