Gorkhi-Terelj National Park back to Ulaanbaatar
Today is the last day of our adventure through big valleys, mountains, and green forests. Enjoy your final day’s trek and the breathtaking view of the valley stretching out to the Tuul River.
After lunch, we’ll go on a sightseeing tour of Terelj National Park. Turtle Rock, Aryaval Monastery, and a small meditation monastery at the foot of the mountain, will be our first stop. The Genghis Khan Monument will be our final stop. The latter is a massive aluminum statue of Genghis Khan mounted on his horse. It is possible to ascend to the top of the monument, where you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the surrounding area. A small museum provides a thorough overview of the history of the Great Mongol Empire, including the succession lines of the great Khans and their invasions.
The time has come to leave and drive back to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s capital. You can use your free afternoon to see as you fit. You could always go see lovely cultural show and admire the contortionists while watching colorful and rhythmic Mongolian dances.
