After an early breakfast of bread, jam and coffee or tea, we headed back toward UB with a stop to see real wild horses at the Khustani National Park. We again experienced lots of off road driving with lots of dust that fell down our windows like a heavy snowfall.
In the search for the wild horses we first saw antelope, marmots, pica, and golden eagles.
Our guide then spotted a herd of wild horses on the next hill so we stopped the van and began hiking to get closer to the herd. It looked like there were two colts and a total of 13 horses. You could easily spot the stallion because he stood a bit away from the herd like a guardian.
After returning to UB, we headed out to the Kirov square and then to the top of the highest sky scraper in UB--the Blue Sky. At the government building in the square, Genghis Khan guards over the square.
