Reviewed 20 March 2015

I stayed 2 nights here in July 2014 as part of an 11 day horseback riding tour with Nomadic Journeys (http://www.nomadicjourneys.com/mongol-horse-trails/ -- which surpassed even my dreams of what a perfect vacation should be). If you're looking to sleep in a ger in the middle of spectacular scenery, with incredible views in every direction -- mountains, forests, wildflowers every where you look, goats and horses drifting between gers -- than this is the place. We were all there for the riding, but they told us they also do hiking, kayaking, bird watching, and even a special thing where they'll set up a ger by the river for you to use as a sauna. This place is so beautiful, if you like outdoor activities and being surrounded by nature, you'll love it.

Important to be clear that this is not your usual hotel or hostel or campsite. There's one toilet (a real toilet, over a deep, deep pit - but it was actually nice and didn't stink), and one shower (a ger with a bucket and a stove to heat water), and probably only one electrical outlet too. Obviously no WiFi, cell reception, mini-fridge, etc. Meals are served in the largest ger -- and all the meals I had were excellent. Meals were included in my trip, they also sold alcohol and sodas. They bus water in from Ulaanbaatar (the rest of the trip we drank boiled river water).

I stayed in a ger with another person from my tour group. They had a few "bridal suite" gers with one giant bed instead of 2. We arrived on the day another group left, there might have been 1 person staying solo, but I'm not sure. Both our group and the other one were ~10 people. Plus maybe 5 or 6 camp caretakers and our guides meant there was never over 20ish people -- I'm guessing here -- not just in the camp but anywhere as far as you could see. The guides spoke English, but not every one else did though they were friendly. Most of the other guests were speaking German.

It's a rough drive, multiple hour (3+ maybe? I forget) scenic bus ride to get to the camp, which is in Terelj National Park. There's no real road, the bus turned off the freeway at an unmarked point early on and continued through muddy tire-marks and over grass right up to the camp. I definitely would not try to get there by myself. The whole thing is "low-impact" and can be picked up and moved, so it might not be in exactly the same place any more, but I'm sure the new location is great too.

It's probably self-selecting who will be considering traveling here, and the experience might be different traveling alone instead of with a group. My guess is a lone traveler would feel left out since my guess is the vast majority of guests come on Nomadic Journeys' trips, but this was a fantastic part of the bigger riding trip I took. So if you're already looking in to places like this, I can't praise Jalman Meadows enough!
