Gorkhi-Terelj National Park Tours

star-5
31 reviews
Gorkhi-Terelj National Park
Known for its picturesque alpine scenery, interesting rock formations, and plentiful outdoor activities, Gorkhi-Terelj National Park is one of the most popular attractions in Mongolia. Located about 43 miles (70 kilometers) northeast of Ulaanbaatar, it’s also one of the most accessible national parks in the country.
 
The Basics
A small southern portion of Gorkhi-Terelj National Park has been developed for tourists, with amenities such as tourist ger camps, restaurants, and souvenir shops. Popular ways to enjoy the park include hiking, rock climbing, swimming, rafting, horseback riding, and bird-watching.
 
Many travelers visit as part of a day or overnight tour, often combined with a visit to a nomadic family and a stop at the Chinggis Khaan Statue Complex. Those with more time can embark on multi-day tours and stop at other parks in the area, including Bogd Khan Mountain National Park and Hustai National Park. Those with a week or more can go on extended adventures covering several regions in Mongolia, such as Central Mongolia, the Altai Mountains, or the Orkhon Valley.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Gorkhi-Terelj National Park is ideal for those short on time who want to experience the epic landscapes of Mongolia.
  • Don’t forget your camera to capture stunning vistas throughout the park.
  • Bring comfortable shoes, sun protection, and plenty of water.
  • If visiting in the summer, bring insect repellent.
 
How to Get There
Many travelers visit Gorkhi-Terelj National Park as part of a guided tour. It’s also possible to take public transport to the park. Two buses depart daily from Ulaanbaatar and take about 2.5 hours to arrive at Terelj Village.
 
When to Get There
Gorkhi-Terelj National Park can be visited year-round. When to visit depends on what you’re looking to do. Hiking, rock climbing, swimming, rafting, horseback riding, and bird-watching are popular in spring and summer. In the winter, it’s possible to go cross-country skiing and dogsledding inside the park. Visitors hoping to explore more of the vast park should allot more than just one day here.
 
Highlights of Gorkhi-Terelj National Park
Popular attractions in the park include Turtle Rock and Old Man Reading a Book (Praying Lama Rock), both resembling their namesakes and easy to reach from the tourist camps. Also popular are Khagiin Khar Lake, a glacial lake 50 miles (80 kilometers) upstream from the tourist camps, and Yestii Hot Water Springs, another 11 miles (18 kilometers) farther upstream.

A good day trip from Ulaanbaatar
Cloudetravels
, Jul. 2019
This was a great way to see a small piece of Mongolian countryside when I only had one site-seeing day in Ulaanbaatar. The tour was efficiently run and hosted by an exceptionally warm, interesting and hospitable young woman, Tunya. If you are unfamiliar with horse riding the guides are very patient and thoughtful - although it is tough on your body if you're not used to it. One limitation was the lack of prior information and planning about what you should wear / take with you - so some tips: - Horses don't like 'flappy' clothes so don't rely on having too many loose items on - It's not advised to wear a backpack while riding so be sure to have something on with pockets to carry your camera etc - Helmets are not included in this tour, so if that's something important to you, perhaps contact the organisers in advance - You are riding for a good 2-3 hours so be sure to carry sunscreen / hat / light neck scarf etc with you - There are a lot of horse flies that follow you, so some insect repellent spray might be handy if you happen to be travelling with some Overall a great experience with lovely guides.

Eric picked me up at the hotel right on time, and during the ride to the Chinggis memorial and the national park, gave me a fascinating overview of Mongolian history and culture with his perfect English. The horseback riding was amazing and the the scenery gorgeous. Eric was the best guide I’ve ever had, he even brought me a birthday cake and sang happy birthday!!

Small group horseback riding

This was a good experience for riders who are relatively new to the activity. The horses were tame and the guides would lead you if you were not experienced. Beautiful scenery. Trip included a visit to the giant statue of Chenggis Khan which describes the history of the early Mongols in several nice displays.

One of them is a gigantic statue of Genghis Khan on the bank of Tuul river. It is 40 meters tall and wrapped in 250 tons of gleaming stainless steel. The equestrian statue of Genghis Khan was built in 2008 on the occasion of the eight-hundredth anniversary of the foundation of the Mongolian Empire, in honor of its founder, Genghis Khan. The people of Mongolia honored him by erecting the world's largest equestrian statue in his likeness. Located 34 miles from Ulaanbaatar in an area known as Tsonjin Boldog, It's the currently the highest statue representing a man on a horseback in the world.
