Gorkhi Terelj National Park (Terelj) is one of Mongolia’s most popular destinations. Tucked into the Hentii Mountain Range, the park borders the Khan Hentii Strictly Protected Area. Terelj is famous for its beautiful natural scenery, intriguing rock formations, and some manmade attractions. There are a number of tourist accommodations, some of which stay open year-round, and the area offers excellent hiking, fishing rock climbing, and horseback riding opportunities, as well as a chance to raft the Tuul River towards Ulaanbaatar. Visitors can take leisurely strolls over green meadows carpeted with edelweiss and a dazzling variety of other wildflowers, view boulder mounds against a backdrop of pine-covered slopes, and wander along the wooded banks of mountain streams.
