Great place to relax

Came here with a friend. Was close enough to the city to get here easily, but far enough to have a wonderful escape.

November of snow, whitish vast landscape. Cold of minus 20s. Ensure you are equipped to withstand the cold. Using gloves which are touch sensitive for using phone camera is useful as your fingers get frost bitten very fast.

It was just stunning to be in the National Park, where there is nothing besides a ger here and there and a few animals. Wow!

This is a must for people looking to see the true untouched nature of Mongolia. It was bit cold in november, when I visited. As per the locals summer is the ideal time to visit this place.
