Chinggis Khan Complex and Terelj National Park

statue and terelj

The Chinggis Khan Equestrian Statue is a 40m tall steel statue of Chinggis Khan riding his horse. It is located on the back of the Tuul river where according to legend he found a horse whip. The statue is symbolically pointing east towards to his birthplace. There is a visitors centre and excellent bronze age and 13th century museum which is definitely worth the visit. There is also a cozy restaurant and panoramic views of the Mongolian steppe and mountains from the top of the statue.

Terelj National Park is located in one of the most stunningly beautiful natural hotspots of Mongolia. There are spectacular valleys, rivers and forests only an hour’s drive from Ulaanbaatar. Visitors can view fascinating rock formations including the famous “turtle rock” against a backdrop of pine-covered mountains and wander along the wooded banks of mountain streams. Guests can stay overnight in a snug Mongolian Ger (yurt) and be taxied along the river bank on the back of a yak cart. It is an ideal place for taking a trip on horseback along the Tuul River or the valley and visiting a local nomadic family to try local delicacies.

Available: May – October (winter tours are possible but will not follow this itinerary. Please contact us directly for details)
