MONGOLIAN DWELLING GER
We have developed a low impact ger camp - small, natural and authentic.
A ger is a traditional Mongolian dwelling and is very durable. Our gers are made of wood, felt and other natural insulation material. It can withstand the strong steppe winds and is heated with a wood stove. On the inside, a ger is lined with natural insulation material; woolen blankets, woollen insulation panels, it is a warm, comfortable shelter in the winter and a cool dwelling in summer. A ger is easily assembled and disassembled, and its components can be loaded on a couple of camels or on a yak cart. It is made of a wooden framework covered by large pieces of felt. A decorative cloth covering is laid over the felt. The ropes which go around the ger, called bus (belts), are usually made of braided horse mane and tail hair. The wooden framework consists of collapsible walls hana, topped by poles (uni) radiating from a central round shaped window called "toono". Gers are well known for providing a wonderful balance between nature and comfort. Our gers are spacious and come with comfortable, wide beds, soft linen and extra blankets for cooler nights. Rather than electrical bulbs, at night candles illuminate the gers.
There are no TVs or telephones in the gers.
