Hustaii Nuruu National Park

Hustaii Nuruu National Park

The Hustaii Nuruu National Park is the home of the Przewalski horse, the last remaining species of truly wild horse in the world. They were reintroduced into the wild in 1994 by the Foundation for the Preservation and Protection of the Przewalski Horse in the Netherlands, which flew 16 horses to Mongolia, their historic homeland, 25 years after they had become extinct in the wild. Though the horses are better known by the name of the Polish scientist who first classified them, the local Mongolians call the horses by their Mongolian name – takhi (pronounced “ta-hee”). Please note horse sightings are not guaranteed.
