Elstei Ger Camp
The Trans-Siberian Travel Company Rating: Unique & Comfortable Ger Accommodation
Located just over and hour from Ulaanbaatar in the open steppe Elstei offers a unique Mongolian ger experience with a good degree of comfort.
A ger stay is often a real highlight of a Trans-Siberian trip. The gers are comfortable and spacious and usually have 4 beds, some traditional style Mongolian furniture and a central stove which an attendant may light on cooler nights. Toilet, shower and dining facilities are nearby in a purpose built block. Beyond is the great Mongolian outdoors.
Note that during the harsh but beautiful Mongolian winter Elstei is one of the few ger camps to remain open. To do this means that the summer toilet and shower block are closed and replaced with a drop toilet and hot water is provided to wash with in your ger. The dining block also closes with meals served in your ger. To preserve the strength of the horses, riding is not usually available in the winter.
