Embark on an unforgettable tour to the Hustai National Park and catch a glimpse of the rare and exotic Przewalski’s horse, known as the takhi in Mongolia.

Lose yourself while hiking the vast, green steppe mountains. Discover ancient graves from the times of Genghis Khan. Live like a local and experience camping in gers, a traditional felt tent used by nomadic herders, even to this day.
