A Recent Review of this tour

Naraa took us (an adult family group of 8) on an unforgettable two day journey in and around the Gorkhi Terelj National Park. There were some expected experiences ( camel rides, eagle holding, overnight in a ger with a local family, horse riding etc) but there were unexpected and for us unheard of experiences like a traditional lunch at The Kings Palace - a 20km drive off-road across no man's land with no sign posts or landmarks. Thank you Naraa.
