Central Mongolia

But central Mongolia offers more than steppes. Landscapes are broken by the forested
hillsides of the Khan Khentii range, meandering rivers such as the Tuul and lunar-like lava

caravanning in the distance completes every perfect day.
The rivers and back trails of Gorkhi-Terelj National Park beckon the outdoor enthusiast.
At Khustain National Park you can break out the binoculars and spot the reintroduced takhi

Roll out of Ulaanbaatar in a Russian jeep and you’ll only need to put a hill or two between
yourself and the city before the vast steppes of cental Mongolia begin to unfold before
your eyes. Verdant swaths of empty landscapes are sprinkled with tiny gers stretching to
