Detailed Itinerary 

Day 1: Terelj National Park (60kms)

Meet up with your guide at the hotel in the morning and transfer to Terelj National Park which is famous for its peculiar rock formations such as Giant Turtle Rock. Visit Aryapal Temple and Meditation center located in the remote mountain and enjoy beautiful sceneries of the area. Then proceed check-in to Terelj Star Resort and have a lunch. After lunch visit local nomadic family, learn about their distinct lifestyle and ride a horse for about an hour. In the evening you can enjoy many of the free activities at our resort such as Mongolian archery, hiking in the nearby hills, trying on traditional Mongolian Clothes etc.

But the highlight of the day comes at night. As Mongolia has clear skies for about 250 days a year, it’s ideal for star gazing as well as night sky photography opportunities. At our resort we turn off all the camp lights for star gazing during cloudless and moonless nights. We also have a telescope at our resort, available for using at the small fee. Enjoy hearty dinner and rest in a comfortable ger camp. (B/L/D)
