Welcome to Terelj Area


Terelj was first developed for tourism in 1964 and 30 years later it became part of the national park. It’s a bit crowded with ger camps these days, but you can easily get away from the hustle and bustle. Be prepared for mosquitoes, especially in late summer.

Pay the admission fee at the park entrance. Note, passengers on the public bus from Ulaanbaatar rarely have to pay this as the bus usually drives past the entrance without stopping.

Terelj village is about 27km from the park entrance, at the end of a paved road.
