Ger camps are a uniquely Mongolian type of travel accommodation. In recent years a lot of ger camps have popped up, differing in price and quality of service. Camps that offer visitors a more comfortable stay have the usual amenities such as warm showers, toilets, freshly made beds with clean sheets and blankets. Generally a site will have a dozen or so gers that can accommodate between 2 to 4 guests. The showers and toilets are communal and the dining area is often in a larger ger in the center of the camp.
Staying with a nomadic family
Travelers looking for a more authentic experience might choose this option. Guests stay in an additional ger erected next to a family, a sort of nomadic homestay. The amenities are quite basic if there are any. Do not expect camp quality toilets, showers, or comfy beds, however you will get a glimpse into a more genuine nomadic way of life.
