Tuul Riverside Lodge and their team (of great cooks, driver, camp manager) were extremely accommodating and took such good care of us during our stay. The ger camp was warm, toasty and clean, and all our meals were simply amazing. Their beds and duvets were also extremely fluffy and comfortable. They also arranged dog sledding and horse riding for us...

Amazing winter excursion just an hour from UB. It was well organized and exciting. A full day of crazy fun dog sledding then you get shuttled back to a warm ger with great food. Excellent and seamless guidance and support from the Tuul team.

Beautiful location, warm and cozy gers to stay. Because it is located in not so populated area you can enjoy your vacation in privacy. Great part of the journey was getting to the camp with hovercraft.

My husband and I stayed overnight at Tuul in mid-September 2016 as a one-night break from the Trans-Mongolian train from Beijing. Although our stay at Tuul was only for one night, we absolutely loved being able to get away from Ulan Bator and enjoy the beautiful countryside. From the beginning, when we were met by a very friendly fellow (I'm...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tuul Riverside Lodge is a small, fully sustainable, traditional Mongolian camp surrounded by a sea of grass and rolling hills, which stretch down to the nearby River Tuul and beyond. Situated within an hour’s drive east of Mongolia’s bustling capital Ulaanbaatar, a warm, and peaceful welcome awaits you. You will stay in beautifully decorated traditional yurts, known locally as gers, with the added advantage of en suite facilities. Gers are constructed from a wooden lattice frame, 88 roof poles, and are covered with layers of felt to insulate against the harsh Mongolian climate. Both strong and reliable, they are perfect places to spend your time in Mongolia. At the Tuul Riverside Lodge there is something for everyone, regardless of age, experience or ability. We offer a wide range of both adventure and cultural activities, allowing you to enjoy and learn about Mongolia to the fullest. Relax around a roaring campfire and marvel as the Milky Way passes overhead. Enjoy the solitude and freedom that is Mongolia, and let your worries fade away. Given the high standards of the lodge, the beauty and tranquility of the area, and its close proximity to the city, make it the perfect place to hold small business meetings, conferences and team building activities. Whatever your needs, the Tuul Riverside Lodge is ready and able to facilitate in any way we can. We look forward to meeting you. ... more   less
