Toson Hulstai

This is Toson Hulstai Nature Reserve. There are no fences, just grass for thousands of kilometers. Horned Lark, Mongolian Lark, Sky Lark and Japanese Quail are common in this habitat. We also saw thousands of Mongolian Gazelle.


The reserve protects 4,700 square kilometres of dry steppe ecosystem spread across Khentii and Dornod provinces in eastern Mongolia. Key conservation goals include providing suitable habitat for 50,000 gazelle, doubling the number of active marmot colonies and establishing a viable wolf population.
