What you'll do
Yes, Terelj is a popular tourist spot, for a reason. It is well known for its spectacular beauty, and diversity. If done right, this will be the highlight of your trip to Mongolia. We begin with a light hike to Zaisan Memorial, from where you can get a glimpse of the city that you are about to leave behind. From there, we will directly head to Chingis Khan Monument, a giant, 40-meter-high statue, located in the middle of the steppe. You might wonder what this statue is doing there, the answer is easy - this is how much Mongolians worship the Great Khan. The entrance inside the complex is optional. (You will have to pay extra 11$ at the site). Our next stop is the Turtle Rock, one of the most intense beauties of Terelj. You will have an opportunity to ride camels, horses, and pose for photos with an eagle, which are all optional. We will visit a herder family ger, experiencing the true nomadic life, and do some Mongolian dairy product tasting. After having a light lunch, we will do some hiking up to Aryabal Monastery - the abandoned beauty, located on the hillside of a mountain covered with larches & granite rock. You will walk through history, learning about how Mongolians were introduced to Buddhism. In a single day, you will get an impression of Mongolia hanging on the threads of tradition and the culture of past time.
Hello! My name is Andy. I have been in the travel business for almost a decade. I love traveling myself and exploring new adventures. I live in Mongolia during the summer, and travel the rest of the year. Although Mongolia is a welcoming and beautiful country, not a lot of information is provided and can be tough to navigate around. We will help you get the best of a day trip, and explore the most beautiful places and sceneries around.
