It's beautiful country. Rent a Yurt "Ger" and enjoy some nature. We hung out by a stream and drank and bbqed. Loads of fun. I drank too much and needed help finding my way back up the hill to the Ger, lol.

I stayed with 5 local families here during a week in September. I did not stay in a tourist camp. I went horseback riding and filing. This park is beautiful and you get the feel of local Mongolia by staying in gers here. It's about 1.5 hours from Ulaanbatar and is definitely worth the visit. I always wanted to see... More

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.

Not too far from UB, this national park is really worth going at least for a day. It offers views of the beautiful natural landscape of Mongolia. Horse riding through the park is an amazement. Don't miss the impressive turtle rock and take a walk up to the meditation temple where you will have a spectacular and peaceful view of... More

The national park is a bit far from Ulan Bataar but definitely worth the drive if you are interested in nature and beautiful landscape. I stayed overnight at one of the tourist camps and spent time hiking, taking photos and riding horses. You'll get to see yaks, rivers, interesting rock formations (like the Turtle). The place is very beautiful and... More
