Day Trips

Terelj National Park

Situated about 70km northeast of Ulaanbaatar, Terelj is a scenic valley in the Gorkhi Terelj National Park.  Granite boulders form interesting rock formations such as the turtle rock.  The foothills are covered with pine forest and the pastures are dotted with white gers.  You will see herds of horses, yaks and sheep, which roam the valley as their summer pasture.  You have the opportunity to further explore the area on horseback or take a walk through the forest.  For lunch you are the guest of a local family, preparing traditional Mongolian dishes.  Return to Ulaanbaatar late afternoon.
