Hustai National Park is located in the Northwestern province of Mongolia, to the north west of Ulaanbaatar. It was made a national park in 1993, covers nearly 30 thousand hectares and is one of only two forest reserves left in this area. This area has been affected by human activity for over 300 years, but the last 20 years have seen an increase in deforestation which is endangering many animal species that depend on these forests as their habitat.
Hustai National Park may be small (by Mongolian standards) but it still manages to attract hordes of visitors every year because it contains the endangered wild horse Takhi (Przewalski's Horse). Since 1984 they have bred around 300 takhi horses here with another 300 in any other of the three Takhi centres set up with breeding program. All in all, they have successfully bred over 800 wild horses and reintroduced them into the wild (in Mongolia and China) but most importantly they are one of only two places in the world where you can see this species free in their natural habitat.
Furthermore Hustai National Park is home to Bactrian camels, Argali sheeps, Siberian ibexes and roe deers which can be seen on a daily basis. You might also stumble upon predators like wolves, foxes and eagles that hunt smaller prey such as pikas or hares throughout winter time when food is scarce.
