We had a guide for two nights and turtle rock was on the way to a monastery hidden away in the mountains. You can’t miss the rock , literally, it’s huge and does resemble a turtle. A great photo opportunity but all over in minutes....More

For those pressed for time and those that don't want to travel far from UB, Terelj can offer a nice introduction to the Mongolian countryside. Take time to explore a little off the beaten track.

Terelj is where the Ulan Baatar residents go to escape the city. It is busy and touristy. If you like horse back riding you might want to find a tour operator to take you into the backcounty.
