Terelj National park is recognized as a part of the huge Khan Khentii reserve and was established as a Strictly Protected Area in 1992. The park's most spectacular features are its huge granite blocks and cliffs as well as meadows rich in wild flowers.

Terelj offers fascinating rock formations against a background of pine tree covered mountains.

The average elevation is about 1600 m., with peaks reaching 2900 m. The park is rich in flora and fauna and reminds of beautiful Alpine valleys.

The distance from Ulaanbaatar is nearly 50 km. Its green meadows carpeted with Edelweiss and a dazzling variety of other wild flowers attract nature lovers. Typical round rock masses determine the look of the overwhelming nature. It is a wonderful hiking and horse riding area. You can visit a nomad's family or just let yourself be absorbed in the silence of nature.

Only the central area, left and right beside the main road are some small ger camps and a small village. The rest of the area is uninhabited and can be entered only by foot or horseback.
