What is Standard Ger Camp ?

What is Ger Guesthouse ?

Some nomadic families who live within national parks or sightseeing areas, run their own small business that rents ger accommodation for backpackers. It gives you a chance to get closely acquainted with the way of life and Nomadic way of lifestyle. During our budget tours, you will stay in Mongolian traditional accommodation Ger Guesthouse. Ger Guesthouse has 4 -6 beds. And occupancy is based on multi-share but with only your group members and not with other tours. Most nomadic families do not have formal toilets in their summer places.
