The Tuul River

The Tuul River is about an hour and a half outside of UB, but you feel a million miles away. It was SO pretty! We stayed at another ger camp and there were only 2 other people there, so we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. We hiked up the mountain behind the camp and we had the most incredible panoramic views. Check it out!

We have a long travel day tomorrow heading back to China to the town of Yangshuo. Looking forward to some R&R on the Li River and good food again. Mongolia is absolutely beautiful, has really friendly people, and really awful food. Mongolia truly is the land of the eternal blue sky!
