Visit the 40 meter (~133, 3 feet) Statue of Genghis or Chinggis Khaan, visitors walk to the head of the horse through its chest and neck of the horse, where they can have a panoramic view. Terelj National Park-is one of the most popular national parks in Mongolia. Terelj features stunning granite mountains and flowery endless grassy green meadows. This picturesque National Park is a part of Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area.
It is a great place for hiking, trekking, optional horseback riding or yak riding even you can rock climb here at its natural steep granite walls. We explore Hustain Nuruu National Park (hustai is Mongolian for birch and nuruu means mountains) measures about 57,000 hectares, or including the bufferzone 120.000 ha., and is located on about 100kms/62 miles west from the capital Ulaanbaatar.
The flagship species for the Hustain Nuruu National Park is the reintroduced Przewalski horse. Drive towards west to visit and explore Karakorum-the Genghis (Chinggis) Khan's 13th century capital and heart of the mighty Mongolian Empire and Okhon river Valley, cradle of Mongolian civilization. Today, the cultural heritage of the valley constitutes a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Visitors, such as Marco Polo, described its ornate building, including a 2500 sq. meters Palace of Worldly Peace. We also explore Khogno Khaan Nature Park is located about 270kms/135miles west of Ulaanbaatar. Covering an area of 47000 hectares, this park contains many historical monuments, forests of silver birches and poplar trees, and sources.
The ecosystem of this park is particularly interesting because the steppe and the taiga meet here. Created in 1997 as a natural reserve, it became in 2003 a natural park. One of the main attractions of this area is the small Uvgun monastery which was built in 17th century by Saint Zanabazar who was a great sculptor and the biggest representative of Buddhism in Mongolia.
We visit Elsen Tasarkhai-is a part of the 80kms/50miles long Mongol Els Sand Dunes and is located on about 270kms/135miles west from the capital Ulaanbaatar. The nature in this area is really spectacular and great for relaxing. During the trip, you will also have opportunities to visit a local nomadic family, ride two-humped Bactrian camel, walk on sand dunes, experience staying in a traditional Mongolian dwelling ger, and walk and relax in beautifully serene nature.
We would be pleased to have you join us.
