Park permit is required to enter the ATB National Park. Buy an ATB National Park permit from ATB National Park Administation office in Ulgii center. Park permit costs 3000 tugrik (Approx. $2.4 ). If you are going into the park, which is next to the border with Russia and China, you will also need a border permit obtained from the border guards office in Ulgii center. Not having one can potentially get you arrested. Your tour company will take care of this for you, or you can ask at the national park information office for someone to help arrange this for you if traveling independently.
Independent travellers in the park will find that park rangers and border guards will stop and ask for permits and fine you accordingly if you don't have them.
