World's Oldest National Park is Here in Mongolia.
Mongolia has the oldest National Park in the world. Lying just south of Ulaanbaatar the Bogd Khan National Park dates its origin to 1778 — it predates Yellowstone by over 100 years. Established by the Mongolian government in 1778, it was originally chartered by Ming Dynasty officials in the 1500s as an area to be kept off-limits to extractive uses, protected for its beauty and sacred nature.
