Hiking in Gorkhi Terelj National Park. Experience local culture up close. Explore amazing scenery – without a heavy pack! A minimum of 4 people is required for trip departure.
Trekking through the Gorkhi Terelj National Park takes you through some of the finest cultural and wilderness landscapes Mongolia has to offer. The hike is a challenge, yet the terrain is moderately easy.
These late summer and autumn treks will find you surrounded by the changing colors of September and October. Each day, while hiking in Gorkhi Terelj National Park, you will cross rivers and passes and walk through wide open mountain steppe valleys.
It’s a great way to meet local people along the way, herders or haymakers, to stop and learn from them about their culture and daily lives.
Each trekker will carry a light pack with the day’s needs, while the camp, along with all extra gear, is transported by yak cart, a traditional way to move camp in Mongolia and still used by many herders in the park and throughout the country.
