I have one day left in Mongolia, and would love to get to Gorkhi-Terelj / Terelj National Park for the day. However, the only info I can find on getting there is on: enter image description here Which states there is a bus at 4pm there, and two buses back (8am and 7pm).

This seems odd as there MUST be a demand for day-trippers. Can anyone help out with info on alternate buses for getting there?

I always forget to ask - Are you on vacation? Or it is your job? How do you make money for this? – VMAtm Aug 14 '11 at 11:24
Last day today, I fly back to London in the morning ;) Was on a long break, shall we say. Have been working as a software contractor in London, but most of my cash goes into saving for travel - I enjoy it so much! – Mark Mayo Aug 15 '11 at 13:11
@Mark Mayo, and? did you make it to Terelj? – Jacco Aug 15 '11 at 13:24
Sadly no, stomach bug and pulled muscle meant I decided against heading out there, but I hope to return next year and will be using the info then :) – Mark Mayo Aug 15 '11 at 16:55

There is a bus going from UB to Terelj. If I remember correctly, it runs once every 2 hours? (at least several times a day). We got our info in one of the bars/cafes that is run by an expat. (I don't remember the name , it is a cafe that kinda stands out. lots of wood, it somewhat resembles a mountian hut. They organise tracks and stuff.) the place is called Chez Bernard Café

The bus leaves somewhere from the main street, and drops you off at the village at the south of Terelj Nation Park.
