Like the Japanese ryokan, yurts, or ‘gers’ as they are known throughout the country, are a quintessential part of many travellers experience of Mongolia. Unlike the ryokan however, which for the most part falls under the ‘been there got the t-shirt’ bracket and is unlikely to be done more than once, you’ll probably find that in Mongolia you will be staying almost exclusively at ger camps or in private gers. This is glamping at its best. Embrace it, and if you have difficulty doing this, take comfort in the fact that with the exception of the capital, good hotels are scarce. Naturally, the further you head from the city, the more basic the accommodation and rest assured that we’ve selected the best options available.
