Ger accommodation – Staying in a ger camp – Beyond Ulaanbaatar we will be staying at ger camps, the traditional home of around half of the country’s population still choosing to live in these traditional tents. A stay in a ger offers the opportunity to experience this traditional way of life and is an ideal base from which to explore Mongolias incredible landscapes and wildlife. Made of felt and canvas draped across a wooden frame, the lightweight and well insulated ger (also known by the Russian name ‘yurt’) can be quickly dismantled, packed away and moved to better grazing lands as needed and when the seasons change. Anything up to 30 gers can be clustered together around a larger central ger, used for meals and entertainment. Long evenings can be spent enjoying the atmosphere and sharing stories with fellow travellers. Many camps also have a traditional Mongolian throat singing performance after dinner. Accommodation and facilities are simple. Individual gers are simple but always cosy and comfortable, usually consisting of up to four single wooden beds, linen, thick blankets, table and chairs. The ger is heated by a central wood-burning stove, excellent for keeping out the night chill, which will be started for you each evening and usually replenished the following morning before you wake. Lux Gers are inclusive of bathrooms attached to or located with the ger.
Ablutions – Camps are equipped with a toilet and shower block and have limited electricity running from a central generator, and limited hot water that needs to be boiled in readiness for a quick shower. As such, showers need to be booked, and it’s not uncommon that people go a few days between showers in these climes. Most of the Ger camps we use will also have a laundry service available, at a small additional cost.
Food – Conditions on the vast, cold Mongolian steppe has always made food a necessity, rather than an art. The nomadic diet comprises a lot of meat and dairy, supplemented with flour based doughs, occasionally rice, and seldom any vegetables (other than potatoes) or fish
Level of Activity – As there is an increased amount of walking and activity including hiking and exploring, participants must possess a medium level of fitness and be 100% mobile.
