I've lived in Ulaanbaatar for three years and frequently hike on the Bogd Uul. It's a beautiful sanctuary for wildlife (deer, pigs, raptors and -- judging by some scat specimens -- some sort of mammalian carnivore), and I have taken my students on hikes through the mountain several times. Stopping woodcutting, educating visitors about the risks of fire, and maintaining insofar as possible the Strictly Protected Area as a reserve is a fine idea that will become increasingly valuable in the future, as many Mongolian youth are keen on day-hiking.
