Horseback Riding in Terelj National Park, Mongolia
After leaving from Russia along my Trans-Siberian journey to Beijing, the next stop was Ulan Bator, Mongolia. And with the five friends I’d met in the city that I was now traveling with, we realized a couple of the days in the city was enough for us and we were ready to get out to see the ‘real’ Mongolia. We decided on a two night, three day tour in Terelj National Park.
We booked the tour through our hostel, the UB Gueshouse, which made things really convenient and the cost was very inexpensive. The tour cost only $45 and since we only had about a week total in Mongolia, this short 2-3 day tour was ideal for us as opposed to a trip to the Gobi desert which typically takes a week at minimum.
We left out early the following morning and got picked up in what I call a ‘Mongolian Shuttle Bus’. Basically, it was like a small camper van but fit the six of us plus the driver just fine.
