Bogd khan national park is only an hour drive away from Ulaanbaatar, the capital and it is close enough to be convenient but yet far enough to be a get-away. It is a great place to go hiking and its beautiful thick forests, breathtaking scenery and small bubbling streams provide an oasis for relaxation. Visit to an old charming temple and a small local museum will let you explore more about the area and its wildlife
In the morning we will hit the road to the Bogd khan national park. When we get there, visit a local museum and get an introduction of the park and its wildlife.
After visiting the museum start hiking to Bogd khan mountain peak, 2268m above sea level. Have a hearty lunch on top of the mountain while overlooking most of Ulaanbaatar and its beautiful surroundings as well. In the afternoon visit an old charming temple Manzushir. The monastery is located in the foot of Bogd Khan Mountain. The construction of the monastery began in 1730s and got extended until the 20th century when it was destroyed due to Stalin’s purge. During that time, there were approximately 21 temples and more than 500 monks. In 1998, the building and ruins were taken under state protection. Today “Lavrin” temple which was restored after democratic revolution, is used as a museum and there is a huge bronze pot made for cooking for 1000 monks. Finally enjoy the quietness and breathtaking scenery of the park. Also, you will witness the marmots playing or fighting with each other before we finish the day.
