'''Gorkhi-Terelj National Park (Горхи-Тэрэлж)''' is in [[Tuv]] of [[Mongolia]].
 
It's a rather mountainous area with a beautiful river, forests and some interestingly shaped rocks.
==Understand==
===By Bus===
There is a bus from [[Ulaanbaatar]] to the park.  It leaves from a bus stop on the south side of Peace Avenue, opposite of the big 'Narantuul Hotel', 150 metres meters East of the junction with Ondor Gegeen Zanabazaryn Gudamj, which is the road that runs south from Gandan Khiid. The bus stock waits at the east end of the bus stop. The bus stand has a large "e-ticket.mnPepsi" sign on it(GPS N47.91545 E106.89782).  Buses leave at 11am 12:00pm and 4pm16:00pm, and take 2 1/2 hours to get to Terelj village. With the large scale maintenance of the road to Terelj, the bus now takes about 3 1/2 hours (5/8/2013) Coming back, they leave Terelj village at the uncivilised hours of 7am 08:00am and 8pm19:00pm. The bus costs 2300 2200 MNT one way to and 2500 MNT back as the bus then has to pay a toll fee to get into the city (as of July 2009August 2013).
===By Car===
The road is paved all the way, fine for cars. Lots of UB residents come for the weekend, so you can probably find a ride back to UB pretty easily. Offer to help pay for petrol.
