Tour Overview

Today, the Khustai National Park is best-known as the home to Przewalski wild horses; known as Takhi in Mongolian. These horse-species, native to Mongolia, died out in mid-1950s in their natural habitat. With Dutch effort, the Przewalski horses were re-introduced to Khustai area in 1992 from zoos around the World. The area was recognized as National Park in 1993.

Between 1992 and 2000, around 84 horses were released in the Park and now their numbers have grown to over 300. In addition, the Przewalski horses were introduced to Xinjiang in China, Chernobyl in Ukraine and in Gobi of Mongolia.

However, compared to the horses in other places, ones in Khustai National Park are used to human visitors. This makes it nearly impossible for visitors to miss them when travelling deep into the park. At the entrance to the Khustai area, visitors can enjoy an overnight in a modern day ger camp with warm meals. As the park is home to wide range of animals such as 55 species of mammals, 223 species of birds, 4 species of reptiles, and over 500 species of inspects, visitors are bound to have plenty to see in addition to the Przewalski horses.
