In the past, the Takhi had been completely wiped out of Mongolia. Luckily, about 50 had been preserved in European zoos. These Takhi were reintroduced to Mongolia and now there is a herd of about 200 Takhi roaming around in their natural habitat!

We will take a guided tour through the visitor’s center and the park to see these rare horses along with, hopefully, some other wild mammals and birds. Fortunately, hunting is strictly prohibited in this area, so we can enjoy nature untouched by man.

The Flaming Cliffs, so aptly named, are red in color and almost seem to glow in the rising or setting sun. As you wander through here, keep your eyes peeled for any geodes. Fossils here are still being discovered today.
