3 Best Ger Camps in the Gobi Desert
Posted by Selena Travel / Jul 19, 2024
A ger camp, also known as a yurt camp, is a type of accommodation commonly found in Mongolia and other parts of Central Asia. Gers are traditional portable dwellings used by nomadic peoples in the region for centuries. These round, felt-covered tents are typically constructed with wooden frames and are designed to be easily dismantled and transported. A ger camp consists of several gers arranged in a campsite setting. Each ger serves as a guest accommodation, providing a cozy and comfortable space for travelers to stay. Staying in a ger camp offers travelers a unique opportunity to experience traditional Mongolian hospitality and immerse themselves in the nomadic way of life.  Ger camps vary in size and amenities, ranging from basic setups with shared facilities to more luxurious options with private bathrooms and additional services. They typically have a stove in the middle and a couple cozy beds inside. You can look up at the sky through a window in the top while you’re cozy in bed. They rarely have a bathroom inside, though, so late-night bathroom trips will require you to leave your cozy ger.   The Gobi Desert stands as one of the most captivating regions within Mongolia. Optimal times for visiting Mongolia include the summer months spanning from June to Late September, where you can really experience the Mongolian Desert.  The vast dunes spreading out around you will put you in awe. Seeing the life that can survive in the harsh environment is exciting, and there are a number of natural features to visit. There are also fossils and tours where you can see where dinosaur eggs were first found! Choosing a ger camp can be difficult though. Each year there are more to choose from in the Gobi region. Here are three of the top choices for staying in a ger camp in the Gobi Desert.
