Khangai Nuruu National Park

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Not to be confused with its similarly-named brother to the west – the Khustain Nuruu National Park – this huge area of land in the depths of the Orkhon Valley is one of the largest in the nation (even if it hardly comes close to the vastness of the Gobi, but more on that later). It’s quintessential steppe from beginning to end. You’ll see the sweeping grasslands rise and fall as they roll out into the distance. You’ll wonder as streams break through the bluffs and crash as waterfalls into ice-cold plunge pools.

You’ll ride horses with nomads, and sleep in traditional yurt villages as the fire crackles nearby.
