The small village of Gachuurt is 20 kilometres East Ulan-Bator, at the edge of the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park and of the strictly protected area of Khan Khentii. It stretches on the banks of the Tuul River, invaded by many picknickers in summer.
The village offers a peaceful atmosphere, a good environment for field sports like biking, hiking, horse riding. It's a booming suburb very popular for rich Mongolians ; they build houses on the highest hills. Each year, Gachuurt also organises the Playtime music festival.
