Regarding accommodation options in Mongolia, you have a few choices available. If you're looking for a traditional and comfortable stay, then ger camps are the way to go. Ger camps are designed for tour travelers and are often recommended by tour operators. These camps are usually located close to natural sights, making them an ideal choice for those looking to explore the great outdoors.

Each ger, which is a traditional Mongolian dwelling, is equipped with 2 to 4 beds, a stove, and other necessary furniture. Separate showers and restrooms are available for men and women, ensuring maximum comfort and privacy. Additionally, ger camps offer a range of services, including a restaurant, bar, laundry facilities, sauna, shower, massage, little folk concert, horse or camel riding, and more.

The staff at Ger Camps are known for their hospitality and willingness to help, so you can rest assured that you'll be in good hands during your stay. However, it's important to keep in mind that the high season for tourism in Mongolia is in July, so ger camps tend to fill up quickly during this time. To avoid disappointment, it's best to book your ger in advance.

Program

Mongolian horses

Mongolian horses may be shorter in stature compared to other horse breeds, yet they possess remarkable qualities that make them stand out. These equines are known for their patience, courage, and strength. They are capable of carrying loads of up to 150 kilograms, although we recommend a weight limit of 110 kilograms to ensure the horse's comfort and well-being. We take pride in using traditional Mongolian tack type and exclusively employing Mongolian horses, which have an average height of 140 centimeters.
