Central Mongolia tour

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.

Kazak nomads first started to come to what is now Bayan Olgi in the 1840s. The nomads came to graze their sheep on the high mountain pastures during summer, and spent the winter in Kazakhstan or Xinjiang  province in China. After the Mongolian revolution in 1921, a permanent border was drawn by agreement between China, Russia and Mongolia, but the Kazaks remained nomadic until the 1930’s, crossing the border at will.

The word kazak is said to mean ‘ free warrior’ or steppe roamer’.  Tavanbogd – Five Saints mountains rises 4374m above the borders of free nations,  and for this reason it is also known as Nairamdal ( Freindship) Peak in 2002. Nowadays Mongolians are re-named  Great Mongol Peak. If you sit on the summit, you can simultaneously be in Mongolia, China and Russia.
