Wild Horses

In the Khustain Nuruu national park, a project has been running for several years to reestablish the original wild horses (Takhi) again in Mongolia. There are several places near the river where the beautiful and normally very shy animals gather for drinking every morning and evening. This offers a great opportunity to watch them and take pictures.
4. Day

The Old Capital

On the way to Kharkhorin we cross Mongol Els (Elsen Tasarkhai), a "mountain range" made out of sand dunes.

Look, a white lake!

According to legend, this lage was created when a giant took a big rock and threw it away (Taikher-Khuluu). Then next day he was quite excited to find a large white surface at the old place.
