My first impression of Terelj was not good. I thought it was over-developed, overused, and a waste of my time. It is certainly over-developed in parts and sees far too many tourists and locals, but it did have some redeeming qualities. The rock formations and mountains are nice if you haven't seen this sort of thing before. But to really enjoy the park, just start walking up one of the side mountains and riding a mountain bike where nobody else is and you will enjoy this place. Forget turtle rock and go where the people aren't!

The closest national park to Ulaanbaatar, this huge space is dotted with ger encampments, grazing cattle and wild horses running free. The park is so huge that I felt like I was in the wilderness. Arrange with a local tour guide to bring you there for a night to stay with a local nomadic family. The experience is unlike any other, eating local food made by hand, sleeping under star studded skies and horse riding into vast expanse.

Beautiful Terelj National Park is definitely worth the visit. One of the best ways to see the beauty of the park is by horseback. The nomadic horsemen are friendly and they know the park well.

The closest place from UB where you can experience the "nomad" life and sleep in a traditional Ger. That's what I would recommend doing in the National Park.

This place is stunning - a must visit place in your lifetime. No matter where you look, the scenery is as beautiful: whether they are rocky mountains, green grassland filled with horses, cows or sheep grazing or gers (local tent) among the green pinetree mountain. I can never get enough of the sight and it was simply breath taking!
