What could be more exciting than going for a few days’ horse riding in a country where culture revolves around horses? Escape on a short drive out of the bustling capital city and into Mongolia’s famous grasslands where you will horse-trek through a scenic valley of the Tuul River. Also known as Queen Tuul, she is a vital source of freshwater for millions of humans and animals living near its banks. After four days of riding across lush meadows with views of forested mountains and pristine rivers, hop back in the car for a return drive to the city with a stopover at a mounted statue of Chinggis Khan, which is the world’s largest equestrian statue.

This 704 km river originates from the mountains of Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area and after flowing through this area, it passes through the southern part of the country’s capital and eventually joins the Orkhon River.
