Mongolia is an exciting destination in central Asia. Horse-riding nomads have wandered the never-ending steppes of this sparsely-populated country since the dawn of recorded history.
Parts of Mongolia, such as Ulaanbaatar, are cosmopolitan and offer modern amenities, but fully 30 percent of the population is still nomadic. Hotels in Mongolia do not only exist in cities. Travelers seeking a more traditional Mongolian experience can book the equivalent of hotel rooms in Ger Camps.
Some of these camps lie quite near cities, while some other camps exist far from civilization out in the steppes. Most of them have special rates that include breakfast and electricity. Some, however, simply offer a yurt in which to place a bedroll. If you are seeking true adventure, eschew modern Mongolia hotels for the rough and ready existence of a nomad.
