Camp for tourists is established
Large number of tourists visit Onon Balj national park area in summer. They are seen as a cause for negative things while camping temporarily for nights in the basin of Onon and Balj rivers, producing garbage and destroying vegetation cover. Certainly, it is linked with the attitude of tourists to large extent but lack of specialized camping site for tourists was supportive to such behavior. Therefore, Protection Administration of Onon-Balj NP in cooperation with the Program Office of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Mongolia has developed management plan of tourism in which it has indicated the establishment of a tourist camp site as an important activity to implement. Kherkhon-Bayankhaan Fund has carried establishment of this site in accordance with the design and plans developed by Protection Administration of Onon-Balj NP. 2 camping sites were established in the area known as Deluun Boldog ovor, 3km away from Dadal soum center, and at Guriin Buuts, in a forest area of Balj basin where tourists come in large numbers. Camping site includes fireplace, desks and chairs, car parking, signposts and information billboards, tent erection area, toilet and garbage bins. In doing so it is expected to establish conditions for promoting responsible tourism.
