The Terelj National Park has two famous rock formations named for the things they look like: The Turtle Rock (Melkhii Khad) and the Old Man Reading a Book (Praying Lama Rock).

It's easy to see why the Turtle Rock is called the Turtle Rock, but you have to look a little closer to see the old man reading a book...

It's possible to climb the Turtle Rock, but we didn't do it.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
