Enjoy the morning at the lake and than drive to Khustain. A beautiful National Park in Tuv province and one of the well-known and prestigious special protected areas in Mongolia. The park was created as a place for the Takhi (Przewalski Horse) to be re-introduced back into Mongolia in 1992, where it had become extinct in the wild. They hide out high in the hills during the day, but in the evening they come down to the Tuul River which runs through the park.
