World Class Accommodations in the Wild

Welcome to Mongolia’s Premier “four season’s lodge”- located in the beautiful Terelj National Park. The Lodge is 45-50 minute’s drive from downtown UB, and a little over an hour from Chinggis Khan Airport (please see the driving map). Ayanchin Lodge represents the perfect place to escape to, from UB. It is also ideally located in the center of the National Park- the perfect base-of-operations, for an extended visit to the park. And, given recent improvements in the “Nailakh- Terelj road” and the completion of the “River Road”, that goes east, out of UB (on the south side of the river)- the drive is a pretty pleasant one. 


We offer accommodations that include high-end hotel suites and rooms, as well as cabins, and traditional gers (yurts). With over 70 beds on the property, we can accommodate nearly any group, function or personal requirement. Our facility has all modern conveniences, including fiberoptic WiFi, genuine 24/7 HOT AND COLD RUNNING WATER (guaranteed), full-service restaurant and bar service….etc. The property is completely fenced with a sheep-and-goat proof exclosure and is supported by two deep wells, and an completely redundant electrical system, including a standby generator. 


We are open year-round, 24/7/365, and welcome you to our island of tranquility and adventure. 

Just 50 minutes’ drive from Ulaanbaatar- is the spectacular Terelj Valley. You won’t believe you are this close to the largest city in Mongolia. Terelj is one of the most picturesque areas in the country, and consists of rivers, meadows, mountains and some of the most amazing rock formations to be found. In the summer, the park is green, and covered in flowers. The air is- well, there is no other air in the world that can compare to the air in Terelj! The Tuul and Terelj Rivers flow through the park, adding their own special beauty. Whether you are here to hike, ride horses, mountain bike or fish- you’ll find lots of things to do here. Points of interest include Turtle Rock and the Buddhist Meditation Center. In the fall, you can see the leaves turn colors, and the water in the rivers runs crystal clear. In the winter, the park is normally covered in snow-although, the last few years, we haven’t received much. There are a host of winter activities available. Also, if you are a downhill skier, it’s nicer to stay with us, and commute the Ski Area, then to stay in town. In the spring, the ice clears off the rivers, and the migratory birds return. Spring can be pretty unpredictable: weather-wise, so be prepared! Year-round, the park has an assortment of wildlife, birds and domestic animals (including camels and yaks).
