Day 3

TERELJ NATIONAL PARK – ARYABAL TEMPLE – HORSE RIDE – GER STAY
Your guide and driver will meet you at a pre-arranged Ulaanbaatar location at 09:30 am, hop into vehicle and journey east to Terelj National Park, stopping en-route at the sacred Turtle Rock which you can climb up and hike to the nearby Aryabal Meditation Temple set on a hill. The National Park yields some great scenery which makes it a very popular weekend getaway for both locals and tourists alike. However, you will now pass through the main valley to get away from other travelers and near Terelj village cross over the river – or rather, drive on top of the frozen! A few kilometers further on you will stop at a family’s ger – step inside and experience local hospitality, drink milk tea, and enjoy homemade lunch, while the horses are being prepared outside. Then saddle up for a 1-hour horseback ride up into the valley towards Jalman Mountain and along the east side of the Saikhan Saridag range of hills. No horse riding experience is necessary – Mongolian horses are small and we match horses to riders – you should be comfortable quickly and your guide will be there to assist. Return to your ger and in the evening enjoy a nomadic feast of khorkhog or similar countryside fare – you can help with food preparation if you wish. In the evening there will be time to socialize with your nomadic hosts over homemade vodka made of fermented mare’s milk, or alternatively for some incredible stargazing of the clear, Mongolian sky.

Travel details: 2hrs/60km to Terelj
Accommodation: Guest ger next to a nomadic family
Meals included: Lunch; Dinner

CHINGGIS STATUE – HUSTAI NATIONAL PARK – TAKHI HORSES
After breakfast, say goodbye to your Mongolian hosts and set off to the remarkable Chinggis Statue complex near Erdene. Once you arrive, climb up inside until you reach the exterior staircase which runs up the mane of the horse to a viewpoint overlooking the Tuul River, Terelj & the hills of Khan Khentii – Chinggis’ homeland. Then jump in the vehicle again for the journey east to Hustai stopping for lunch in a local eatery on the way. You should arrive in Hustai National Park in the afternoon, and tonight you will be staying with another nomadic family that lives near to the park. Enter the family ger and experience the local hospitality and rest a bit, then venture into the park to see the Takhi. They often gather to feed and drink at streams in the evening and you have a good chance of seeing them up close. You may want to combine the trip with a longer walk in the park – in which case you should leave a little earlier in the morning. Discuss your preference with your guide. Afterwards return to your ger and settle in for the night.

On arrival at the park entrance, visit Manzushir Monastery – see the restored temple museum, and wander round the ruins. Afterwards, head up on the hill trails to the summit.
