Three Camel Lodge

Arriving at Three Camel Lodge you are met by a line of broad, smiling young Mongolian faces. They don't need warning - they can see your vehicle from miles and miles away, with nothing else to clutter up the uninterrupted view apart from a few sheep, yaks and ponies.

The forty-individual handmade gers are large and comfortable, featuring traditional furniture, a wood-burning stove, camel hair blankets for additional warmth and artwork from around the country. Each ger has an ensuite, with a shower and there is round-the-clock solar powered lighting and bed lamps for reading. The Mongolian chef cooks using locally grown produce where possible and the bar terrace is a lovely spot to watch the sunset or maybe take a spa treatment in the massage ger.

why we like it

If you want peace, tranquillity and a true escape from the modern world, this is the place to come. The service from the locally hired staff is enthusiastic and professional and although secluded, entertainment is sometimes provided by local Nomads to help keep ancient skills such as throat singing alive.

Facilities

  • Bulagtai restaurant serving Mongolian and Westerns style dishes
  • Lounge and bar area
  • A massage ger offering indigenous Mongolian-inspired massage and spa therapies

Activities

A stay here is all about exploring the wide-open spaces and culture of the epic Mongolian landscapes. Activities on offer range from cycling and hiking to meeting with local nomadic families. Head out for the day in search of wildlife including argali sheep, ibex and majestic raptors.

Entertainment in the form of traditional performances and specialist lectures are scheduled on a weekly basis and an evening spent stargazing should not be missed.

Location

This simple corner of heaven is in the south of Mongolia in the Gobi Desert – a remote and scenically stunning area located about 250 kilometres from the border with China. Getting here involves a domestic flight of around one hour from Ulaanbaatar followed by a ninety-minute drive on unmade roads to the camp.
