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.
