Saikhanii Khutul

Place to go by Train

Mongolia’s railways go in only two directions: from north to south and from south to north, linking Mongolia, Russia and China. Train enthusiasts who want to see unforgettable views of high, forested mountains and the life of nomadic families and country farmers are recommended to travel by train from Ulaanbaatar to Selenge Province in the northern part of the country.

Less than 10km (6.2 miles) from the provincial capital, Sükhbaatar, you can visit Saikhanii Khutul, a mountainous area with spectacular views over the Orkhon and Selenge river basins.
