Introducing Bogdkhan Uul

The Bogdkhan Uul (2122m) is said to be the world’s oldest nature reserve. Established in 1778, the park was guarded by 2000 club-wielding lamas. Animal poachers were hauled away in chains, beaten within an inch of their lives, and locked inside coffin-like jail cells.

These days it’s perfectly safe and legal to walk on the mountain and you can enjoy some terrific hiking and horse-riding trails. Wildlife is more difficult to spot than it used to be, but you still stand a good chance of seeing red deer.

Entrance to the park costs T3000.
