Gorkhi Terelj National Park is considered one of the most beautiful parts of Mongolia and it's only a short 55km drive from the capital city of Ulaanbaatar.
While Mongolia is famous for the vast Gobi Desert, it's not all there is to see by a long shot. Picture endless steppe, rolling hills, lakes and rivers, dotted with herds of wild horses and ger camps. It's beautiful, dramatic and deserted. I joined a 15 day tour from Ulaanbaatar through Golden Gobi for $535 …
I love exploring new cities when I get the chance. There's always something to see and do, enough to keep you busy for weeks! At least, that's what I thought until I got to Ulaanbaatar.
