Located 70 kilometers north east of Ulaanbaatar, Gorkhi Terelj National Park (Terelj) is one of Mongolia’s most popular destinations. Gorkhi Terelj National Park is in Hentii mountain range and borders the Khan Hentii Strictly Protected Area. Terelj is famous for its beautiful natural scenery, interesting rock formations.

There are a number of tourist accommodations, some of which stay open year-round, and the area offers excellent hiking, rock climbing, horse riding opportunities as well as rafting through the Tuul river that flows towards Ulaanbaatar from the national park. Visitors can take leisurely strolls on green meadows carpeted with edelweiss and a dazzling variety of other wildflowers; view fascinating rock formations against a backdrop of pine-covered mountains; and wander along the wooded banks of a mountain stream. The Turtle Rock created by nature, a small meditation temple and ger museum at Terelj Lodge are the key attractions.
