Three Camel Lodge, Gobi Desert

Gazing out of the doorway of your traditional ger tent you will suddenly realise why Mongolia’s nomadic tribesmen always built their lattice wood, canvas and felt shelters facing southwards. It provides a stunning, unobstructed view of the desert and the Gobi-Altai Mountains.

Make Three Camel Lodge part of your tailor-made holiday to Mongolia and you’ll soon be immersed in other aspects of the nomadic lifestyle.  Your home will be an authentic ger – albeit complete with a private bathroom and king-sized bed – your clothes will include traditional felt slippers and you’ll dine on locally grown, organic produce.

And your experience can include archery, wrestling and horse racing naadams; viewing mountain top Bronze Age petroglyphs; riding camels across the dunes; visiting Flaming Cliffs; tracking snow leopard in Gegeet Valley…
