Khustai Nuruu - National Park

Established in 1993, the Khustain Nuruu Natural reserve is about 100km south-west of Ulaanbaatar. In the 90,000 hectare reserve, which includes the lovely Khustain Nuruu, the wild takhi horse and the steppe environment are being preserved. The takhi, also known as the Przewalski’s horse used to roam the countryside in great herds. In the 1960’s they became nearly extinct after poachers killed them for meat and overgrazing by livestock as well as development reduced their fodder and breeding grounds.

At the time, only about a dozen takhi remained, living in zoos in Europe. In the early 1990’s, with assistance from International environmental agencies, many takhi were reintroduced into specially protected areas in Khustain Nuruu and Takhiin Tal. About 1000 takhi now live in these parks or in the wild. They are successfully rearing their young and surviving the harsh Mongolian winter.
