Gorkhi-Terelj National Park is one of the most popular tour destinations in Mongolia. This beautiful area is just 70 km from Ulaanbaatar and is a weekend escape for tourists and Mongolians alike. Terelj National Park is located in one of Mongolia's most stunningly beautiful valleys. Thanks to the natural mountains, rivers, forests, rock formations, and caves, this area has especially spectacular views. It is the ideal place for horseback riding or trekking along the Tuul River and visiting local nomadic families.
Only a few kilometers away from Terelj you will find the 40-meter-tall Chinggis Khan Equestrian Statue. Inside the statue there is a visitors center and 13th century museum you can't leave without seeing.
