One year after reintroducing Takhi (Przewalski's) horses to the area, Khustai Nuruu National Park was declared a Special Protected Area of Mongolia. The park extends through the Khentii Mountains and across the Mongolian steppe to the west. About 100 kilometers west of Ulaanbaatar, Khustai covers 50,600 square kilometers and is home to 2 species of amphibians, 16 species of fish, 44 species of mammals, 217 species of birds, and 385 species of insects. In 2002, UNESCO's Man and the Biosphere Reserves certified the Khustai Nuruu National Park as a natural reserve in the world's network of biosphere reserves.
We will leave Ulaanbaatar early in the morning and drive east to Khustai Nuruu National Park. After arriving, we will drive to a small creek within the park where wild Takhi horses normally graze. While here, we will have some time to explore the area and observe the horses. Later we will drive to visit a local nomadic family. We will eat lunch at their ger camp and learn about nomadic life.
Stay overnight with a local family. Lunch and Dinner
Day 2. Rock Formations and Their History
In the morning, we will eat a traditional Mongolian breakfast and begin our two-day journey on horseback. First, we will ride to the Ungut monument dated back to the 7th century. Then we will venture to see ancient deer stones and eat lunch as we learn about the history of the strange rock formations. We will spend the night in the remote campgrounds of Moilt, so we can enjoy the fresh air and watch wild life at dawn.

Day 3. Return to Ulaanbaatar
