With numerous tourist camps nearby, there are still some features of modern life including cafes, gift shops, and more.

The Yestii hot water natural springs are perfect for unwinding and absorbing the natural surrounding beauty. Khagiin Khar Lake is a deep glacier lake that provides an extraordinary view at sunset.

With the Tuul River flowing throughout the park, it can be pleasurable to simply walk along and take in all of nature's wonders. And while many of the rock formations are standard, the Turtle Rock is worth seeking out for its interesting design.
