Welcome to the day trip from Ulaanbaatar! At 9:00 in the morning, our guide will pick you up at your hotel. Then the tour starts.
Our first stop is Genghis Khan's Statue Complex, the hugest stainless steel statue of Genghis Khan on a horse in the world. We may get there in an hour. It is extremely magnificent as 131 feet high, and you may feel the heroic spirit of the great monarch before the statue. Under the huge statue, there is a museum showing relics and nomadic culture. You can take the lift inside to the head of horse directly, where a special observatory is set for tourists to overlook the vast green grassland.
Afterwards, the guide will escort you to Terelj National Park. On the way, we'll have a stopover in Ovoo, the rock pile on a hill that used to be a place for religious worship. The believers would go there to show their respects to heaven and pray for luck and safety in a shamanistic manner.
Terelj National Park is the highlight on this Ulaanbaatar day trip. It is a nice place to experience the beautiful natural scenery of Mongol, such as serried forests on hills, the clear river in valley, fantastic rocks, leisure horses on wide grassland, and dotted white Mongolian yurts. The best time to visit the park is summer as it's a great resort to avoid heat. The locals like to take a holiday on weekends there.
Lunch is provided in our day trip from Ulaanbaatar at the most spectacular place in Terelj National Park. Western and Mongolian foods are generally available. If you have some special requirements for the meal, please let the guide know in advance.
After lunch we are going to visit the symbol of Terelj National Park - Turtle Rock, which was named for it looks like a turtle raising his head and looking at the distance. It is quite huge so that you seem to be very small before the turtle. You would have a different experience to climb up the rock to see the surroundings through the gap beside the turtle's neck.
You will also be guided to Ariyabal Meditation Temple, another famous attraction in Terelj National Park. A path winds towards the temple on a hill. When you get close, the smooth road changes into steep steps. Along the way, you can also pass a chain bridge and see the wonderful landscapes. Ariyabal Meditation Temple is built for meditation, we may follow the locals to purify your thoughts in meditation.
At last, you'll visit a herdsman's family with our guide, where you would be greeted and treated with the Mongolian etiquette. The host will offer hospitality to you, and you can learn more about the Mongolian customs and taste the local foods, like Yak milk tea.
When the visits of this day trip from Ulaanbaatar are over, we'll drive back to Ulaanbaatar. Our guide will drop you off at your hotel. Thanks for choosing our trip. Hope you have a great time on the journey!
