In the middle of nowhere I like that it seems to be cut off from everywhere else unlike most tourist camps. This is a tourist camp though so they do speak English. We stayed in the Gers. The ger doesn’t have a toilet so you have to walk to a building nearby where all the communal toilets are, separate for M/F. The showers are also in that building but separate from the toilet. It just has a curtain and nowhere to keep clothes to change afterwards. Only three toilets and two sinks so it can get busy when the camp is full I had to choose my timings to use the bathroom. There are additional toilets in the restaurant. They provide towels. But I wasn’t able to find an air dryer in the shower room. Didn’t like the food offered but it was ok. The service was good. The best part is that there is WiFi and it’s not free. It’s an eco camp so lights have a limit, I’m not sure when it went off, maybe at midnight. The river is just steps away! There’s a basketball court. And great hiking opportunities around. There are many small visitors around. We had two frogs on our first night, someone else had a bat, and nice are everywhere, you see holes in the ground practical everywhere around the camp and outside, so keep an open mind about it.…
Girls trip for 4 in Aug of 2013. I know I’m a bit behind on this review but popped up on my pictures today and thought I’d give a quick shout out. We had an absolutely amazing time. Our guide was lovely, got all kinds of activities for us to do—horseback riding, kayaking/canoeing, biking. We even got to go to a wedding and milk cows with nomads. I don’t remember the food being amazing but I don’t remember it being awful. The fees were surprisingly large and we stayed in one that accommodated all 4 of us without being cramped. Restrooms were nothing fancy, but were adequate. Scenery and surroundings were fantastic. Staff was incredibly friendly. I would love to go back some day.
Steppe Nomads was the most comfortable camping in a week in Mongolia. I stayed in an elegant, large bungalow with a window-wall - it can be compared to a 3 star hotel. It is a quiet and clean place where you can stay even more days for rest and relaxation. And the surrounding landscape, the Gun Galuut nature reserve is quite varied. I liked also the restaurant.
They discriminate Mongolians, and act really rude. Very inflexible place. If you prefer a seclusion with high prices, this is place is okayish. But there are plenty of authentic places around the country so, I would not recommend this place. Me and my friends almost died while rafting since they did not gave us any guidance or any kind of tips on it.
An amazing ger camp! Delicious food, quaint small bar, comfy and clean lodging,tons of activities to select from and an amazingly helpful and gracious staff! Other amenities I enjoyed here (which after staying in several ger camps these were not always available) HOT SHOWERS and very clean toilets! I highly recommend this place!
