Lying just 60 kilometres north of Ulaanbaatar, the alpine landscape of the Terelj National Park is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. During the warm summer months of June to September, this stunning area of national park is cloaked in green, with pleasant daytime temperatures of around 22° C. As the temperatures tail off in September, many of the camps and activities close once again, fleeing from the bitter temperatures of the northern Mongolian winter. The spring brings an influx of new life, but temperatures can still be unpredictable, dropping considerably as night falls.

Set amongst the remote wilderness of the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, the Terelj Hotel is a unique Mongolian country retreat that blends opulent luxury with traditional touches, in some of the most unspoilt landscapes on earth.

Having been entirely transformed from its former incarnation as 19th century Soviet holiday camp, the Terelj Hotel is a neoclassical-style retreat set amongst the virtually uninhabited wilderness of the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park. A mere 70 kilometres north of the capital city of UIaanbaatar, this is a land of sweeping steppes, alpine meadows and larch forests, all part of the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area of Mongolia’s Tuv province. The hotel’s design is a lavish blend of east-meets-west, where sumptuous fabrics, Egyptian cotton and antique furnishings blend with local artworks and artisan crafted Mongolian cashmere blankets.
The local Mongolian team have been trained to a high standard, offering the warm and welcoming service one might expect from a European country hotel. Dining options include Morin Khuur, where high-end Mongolian dishes are paired with fine wines in a lavish dining hall, and the more relaxed Argali, where laid-back international fare and an extensive whiskey list are on offer. The café serves up fresh coffee and French pastries, whilst River View provides a more laid-back menu with stunning views of the Terelj River.
Occupying its own wing of the hotel, the Tereljmaa Spa is a haven of tranquillity, offering an array of pampering treatments and salon services, from flotation experiences to full body massages. Fitness enthusiasts will enjoy the neighbouring gymnasium, well-appointed with an array of modern equipment, whilst the indoor heated pool, Jacuzzi and Finnish pine sauna occupy their own colonnaded pavilion. The Terelj Hotel’s vast grounds are home to an array of outdoor pursuits, from fishing and hiking to horse riding and cycling, whilst the neighbouring national park offers endless opportunity to explore some of Mongolia’s most beautiful wilderness terrain.
