Welcome to Khustain National Park


Wildlife watching is best at dusk and at dawn, so it’s worth spending at least one night in the park in order to see takhi and other wildlife.

The park is run by the self-financed Hustai National Park Trust. Its information centre at the entrance to the park at Hustain Tourist Camp offers an excellent overview of the national park.

Nomadic Mongolia

Long after the reign of Genghis Khan, nomadism remains a way of life in modern Mongolia. But with so much to see and do here, it’s only natural that people would want to move about and explore. This adventure taps into the nomadic lifestyle embraced by almost 40% of the local population, travelling through ruggedly beautiful gorges and sandstone mountains in search of golden eagles, desert gazelles, and the Mongolian horse. And when you’re not moving, you’ll experience local customs up close, exploring rural villages and sleeping in traditional ger tents.
