Terelj National Park is a great place to visit, because it is around an hour drive from Ulaanbaatar where you could enjoy natural scenery with open fields, gorgeous mountains, icy cold river and many more. Moreover, it is one of the most popular areas in Mongolia due to its splendid scenery and its proximity to Ulaanbaatar. Visitors will have great opportunities for hiking, rock climbing, swimming, rafting, riding and bird watching. In winter frozen rivers provide skating and snow-covered valleys are ideal for cross- country skiing. For adventure lovers, there is dog-sledding in the winter.
