After a day in Ulan Bator, relaxing, walking around the (tiny) capital and most, importantly, eating like crazy, we were ready to start a 4 days tour around Mongolia.
First stop is Terelj National Park, 2 hours from Ulan Bator. It is a very quiet place with stunning landscapes.
We were staying in this Ger.
Gers are great as long as you take care of the fire. But after everybody goes to sleep, the fire just stops… and in 30 mins, it can be damn freezing cold in those things ! You better be prepared and have a good sleeping bag.
That can sometimes lead to you to doing stupid things to keep you warm.
We spent the day eating, drinking tea and walking around. At sunset we went on a horse ride. It was absolutely great being the only ones (or almost) in this remote area.
