We drove forever it seemed like to get to this hotel,once getting there we couldn't believe our eyes, a city of Yurts!!!!! We had a beautiful room with a king sized bed, plus a wood stove that was full every evening and morning before getting up by the staff, we didn't even hear them in the room. The beds are...

Ger camp that feels like a five star hotel: luxurious beds, en suite shower and toilet, excellent food (a set menu, which is customary in a ger camp, but a fantastic one with multiple courses, handmade pasta and pastries, local vegetables), and top notch service. Staff have obviously been provided excellent training; could not have been happier with my guide...

I traveled with Nomadic Expeditions through the steppes and Gobi for 14 days. They are an exceptional Mongolian travel company. We visited local Nadaam festivals in 2 locations. I loved the various contacts we had with Nomadic people who are still living essentially the way they have for centuries. The Three Camel Lodge was an exquisite experience. The dining was...

Three Camel Lodge is a wonderful experience and the entire trip organized by Nomadic Expeditions could not have been better. Our guide, Khaliun Dashtumur was personable, knowledgeable and wonderful. Our driver, Lhamsuren Tsogt-Bhathr was more than accommodating and great company. Do not pass up this opportunity should it present itself and do ask for Khaliun and Lhamsuren to be your...

The camp is a bit of luxury in the middle of nowhere. I joined as part of Nomadic Expeditions tour spending 5 days in the camp with driver and guide taking me to surrounding sites (most sites take anywhere from 1-3 hours to reach so really remote). The hospitality and employees at the camp is very welcoming and professional. It...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. While we do provide a five-star (or five-million star thanks to the night sky) experience, we blend that luxury with visits to local people for authentic cultural interaction like you experienced. We are glad that you were able to connect with locals to learn more about their lifestyle and culture. Come visit...

I've been here this August for a couple of night and EVERYTHING was just perfect. From the moment you arrive you will feel at home; the friendliest people and the most comfortable Ger you can have. We were in Reindeer and we loved the Ger and the beautiful bathroom. The food was the best we had in our 15 days...

While this is not for everyone, our group had a wonderful visit. It is interesting driving across the desert to get there (there are no road signs and the roads seem to be a suggestion), it is amazing to be in the middle of nowhere. The desert is lovely, sunrises and sunsets magical, and the food top notch. Our Gers...

We stayed here two nights on a private tour. Our ger which was very luxurious and included an attached bathroom. The food was very good and our guide Munkhtuya, provided by Nomadic Expeditions, was great at showing us the Gobi and sharing information and insights about Mongolia. We also enjoyed a Naadam Festival put on by the Three Camels Lodge.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Three Camel Lodge is a luxury award-winning ecolodge in the heart of Mongolia's Gobi Desert, and continually seeks to be a leader in sustainable tourism practices for the region. Proud to be a member of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World and have been recognized as a Gold List lodge by Conde Nast Traveller in 2016, as well as one of National Geographic's World's Best Lodges and Nat Geo Adventure's 50 Top Ecolodges. Our sustainable resources have allowed us to efficiently provide electricity and hot water throughout the camp in order to provide the ultimate luxury camp experience to our guests! Three Camel Lodge is comprised of 40 individual gers, all with en-suite bathrooms. Handmade using a latticed wood construction and covered with layers of felt and canvas, each ger at the Three Camel Lodge is heated by a wood stove and appointed with hand-painted wood-framed king or double beds and custom furnishings. Each ger also features a private bathroom equipped with a toilet, sink and shower. Mongolian felt slippers and bathrobes are among the locally influenced in-room amenities. We invite families or those seeking more space to book one of our two specialty gers. Our Khubilai Ger is particularly well-suited to families, with two bedrooms linked by a bathroom, while our Genghis Ger features a bedroom and a relaxation space, as well as a private bathroom. Three Camel Lodge provides a true escape from the everyday. As such, there are no telephones or access to the Internet. ... more   less
