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 in 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.
Day 1. Search for Horses
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. In the early afternoon, we will go horseback riding in the area, after which we will return to Ulaanbaatar.
