Gers have served as nomadic dwellings for millennia and staying in them is part of an authentic Mongolian experience. However, given the ger camps’ remote locations and Mongolia’s developing tourism infrastructure, these unique lodgings are rustic and require a sense of adventure and flexibility on the part of Western travelers. Guests (including singles) have their own gers, but bathrooms and shower facilities are housed in a separate ger or building/permanent structure. Western toilets and hot water are available. Showers are communal, though they offer ample room for privacy. Internet connectivity can be limited throughout this trip.
