Observe wild horses’ last species in Hustai National Park
This horse trek will take you through Mongolia’s vast steppes, off the beaten trails, until you reach the famous Hustai National Park. On the way you will discover lands where nomadic families have been raising their horses, sheep and yaks for centuries. Take breaks to meet herders and share stories around a cup of tea or fermented mare milk (airag). Riding through green hills and infinite grassland and camping on the river side, you will experience a true horseback experience while exploring wonderful places totally immersed in nature.
Hustai National Park is the home of the famous Takhi. This wild horse, also known as Przewalski, is the last species of true wild horses in the world who has never been domesticated. Saved from extinction and reintroduced in the wild in the late 80’s, the Takhi is still endangered and can only be observed in the wild in Mongolia.

This national park is also the home of red deers, wild boars, grey wolves, lynx and many more of which you might catch a glimpse. If you look up the sky you might see a golden eagle or one of the 200 species of birds sheltered by this park.
