Gun-Galuut is a marvelous conbination of open steppes,
steppe hills, lovely lakes and amazing landscape. We
have protected the
as it's home for the endangered
wild mountain sheep Argali and some other rare species
of brids. The beautiful wild sheep Argali inhabit the
stunning mountains of Baits and Berkh with other wild
animals. The herds have more than 80 Argalis and give
a big chance for the nature lovers to view these fantastic
animls from the closest distance and take photos. Also a visit to the Hustai national park will enable you to view the world's last surviving wild horse species tha Takhi or the Przewalski horse.
We involve the locals to the conservation process by
encouraging their alternative income from responsible
tourism like renting horse, yak and camels to tourists,
offer their handcrafst and their gers for homestay.
Proceeds from this tour go directly to the Argali Sheep
conservation activities in Mongolia.
