GER CAMPING

Ger is Mongolian for ‘home’. Owned and run by locals, staying in a Ger is a brilliant way of immersing yourself in the nomadic life of the locals. A circular tent constructed from wooden frames and layers of felt complete with floor rugs and a stove, a ‘yurt’ camping experience is a once-in-a-lifetime must!

Staying in a Ger drives local economy and is a great way for homeowners to share their culture with tourists, which they wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise due to remote locations.
