Watching Przewalski's horses in the vastness of the steppe and dunes, seeing Siberian ibex, Mongolian gazelles, Taiga antelopes and wolf tracks in the sand, admiring a steppe eagle in the sky: the in Khomyn Tal national park, 1400 kilometers west of Ulaanbaatar, is the ideal place for tourists and Eco volunteers wishing to contribute to the protection of the last wild horses with the association KTT. A handful of yurts and a building offering sanitary facilities, showers and restaurant, inaugurated in September 2022, serve as a base for travelers. You will see the wild horses and better understand the importance of protecting them, observe fauna and flora in a preserved nature, between steppe, dunes, rivers and lakes and meet the nomads who live in the Khomyn Tal National Park. An Eco volunteer program is also planned, for those who wish to actively help the rangers on a daily basis. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing with you our passion for Przewalski's horse and the beautiful landscapes of Khomyn tal.
