When you go on a tour of Mongolia, you go with the understanding that you won't be taking showers daily. Well, this is one of the stops where you get to not only take a shower, but relax in the hot water pumped from the nearby hot spring. Tsenkher Hot Spring itself is too hot to bathe in, but the pumped water is wonderfully relaxing. I spent hours sitting in the pool and stargazing. The herds of yacks passing by in the field next to the hot spring are neat to watch. The gers are clean and spacious and locals, as always, very welcoming.

Two days drive from Ulaanbaataar (UB) is Tsenkher hot springs.
Very natural environmentl and in an area of outstanding natural beauty, although the springs are underdeveloped, it really is worth the trek to get to here.

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be having "Onsen" under a clear, starry night.
Very romantic.

I recommend one night, max two.

I combined it on an eight easy cross country safari from UB to Hatgal via Elaine Tasr, Tsenkher, Horog Volcano and National Park, Murine, Huvsgol and Hatgal. Then back to UB via Amersbaygalant.

Recommended.

It's along rough ride to reach the site of the hot springs. The place is scenic with tree clad hills. The hot springs themselves are nothing much to look at, riddled with pipes that carry the hot water to the pools in the camps.However the overall location is quite picturesque.
We stayed at the Altan Nutag ger camp. As it had rained the gers were a bit damp. The gers are on stilts. As the grasses around are not tended to, it gives a rather rustic look to the camp, which is interesting. The common bathrooms are well kept.The hot water pools very clean. Open to the sky it is a soothing spending some time in them. We found the food reasonably good and enjoyed the traditional breakfast served.

This was the only stop during our 8 days stay at Mongolia where we could take a shower (except our first day at Ulaanbataar). The hot water is pumped into pool by pipelines and the water temperature is regulated for people to take showers. Else, the water straight out of the mountain is way too hot. There are 3 to 4 ger camps side by side. And the camps are surrounded by lovely hills and trees. A beautiful surrounding and hot water made a great pair! The gers were cleaner than other places. A very relaxing stay.

My least favourite place in Mongolia, crowded grubby pools and overcrowded facilities. Walks and views around are lovely. There was hair and dirt floating in the pools and I did not return back into the pool.

This cluster of hot springs are difficult to get to especially if there is any rain or snow. The locals are good at it but it is a journey. The resorts offer the same attraction. Hot springs and the surrounding country side which is good. Do not expect Japanese attention to detail and you will be fine.

Hot water? Hot water? Is what the local guy asked… We were already feeling like a red lobster in winter. It's great to see what is called luxury here. I personally loved the car-seats in concrete.

I spent one night at the hot springs during a two week mountain bike trip. It was kind of disappointing. The location is absolutely beautiful, with animals and gurs dotting the surrounding hills.
The facilities were pretty ordinary though. Only four showers for the multitude of guests and the bathroom door opened directly from the change room onto the actual spa bath, making it a very communal dressing experience!
The spas themselves were small and due to the number of people using them, the water was quite murky.
The food, by the Mongolian standards I've experienced so far was also pretty ordinary.
If you are traveling from Ulaanbataar just to visit the spa you may be a little disappointed.

In a pleasant verdant wooded area, some yurts camps with equipment and baths with a less hot temperature have been set up for the travellers, but also for the nomads and the inhabitants of Ulan Bator who are very keen on these baths. Tsenkher hot springs have healing properties notably on articular diseases and nervous system’s diseases. Composition: sodium carbonate, hydrocarbonate, sulfate, fluorite, hydrogen sulfide.

We came here to relax during our Mongolian adventure and it was interesting. It took forever to get here because there is no real road or signs. It was dark and we just kept heading towards the lights in the distance and eventually we arrived.

I do not remember any of the stone pools from the pictures and we were there for 2 days... It is more like 3 swimming pools that they fill with "hot springs" water. It is not continuous and can take up to 30 minutes for them to finish filling up a pool. There were a lot of kids around so we were happy to go in after 9pm and get fresh water.

The showers are communal (we didn't know this at first) so a pro tip would be to go in and you can lock the door behind you. The food is fine, but since it is Mongolia it won't have any flavor. They do have some salt/pepper/ketchup/hot sauce in case you want to go crazy...

We stayed in one of the cabins which was pretty nice. It was spacious and we slept in the loft. There is a private toilet which was nice and the living room had a couch and chair. There is no AC or a fan so be prepared if it is warm.

There is a lot of potential here and if you go in knowing all this in advance, you can enjoy yourself. You look out upon the hills and yak's/cows/horses that graze just outside of the fence line. The staff was very helpful and willing to accommodate us, but they didn't speak any English so our guide had to translate everything.
