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.

Three Camel Lodge is comprised of 40 individual gers, all with en-suite bathrooms.

The property itself is stunning, rooms are very nice and spacious (beautifully decorated too) but the food is lacking. However, the Nadaam demonstration at the lodge was very nice to see (archery, horseback, etc). I was here in 2015.

The atmosphere was true Mongolia, and the facilities were clean and fresh. The Ger we stayed in was no Ritz Carlton, but for an adventurous spirit, our little fire stove and cool stone flooring added to the ambience. One of my favorite places to stay!

Spent several days here and found it very comfortable and enjoyable. The accommodations are great - spacious, comfortable, amazing bathroom and shower. Sunrises and sunsets and stars are hard to beat. The bar is a fabulous building with a great deck. Food was consistently very good. Staff could not have been more helpful. The whole place seems to have a sustainability ethic. Everything is very well done.

Check in was simple and easy. Our host explained all including location of our GER and other amenities. We had lunch with FLIES all around us and on our food. We complained about flies and they said they have a water bag over the door for that. First evening our problems started with a bad odor in our GER. They came and vented it. Then after that we started with shower and were unable to complete as NO HOT water. So my husband had to walk back again to complain about that. Don’t know why they don’t have emergency 2 way radio. Well in the end they found us another GER. Breakfast again with flies. Lunch we were on road but dinner was the biggest disappointment. A MICE in the dining hall and it’s running to the kitchen and we addressed that to the server 4 times and all she said was SORRY!!! Our appetites were ruined by the MICE ever since. Next day we find out there is no manager on duty and staff does not understand English. I would never let anyone pay $900 a night to be treated the way we were. Both me & my husband had a massage here which gave me more back problems.

Dear Shefali, We are very sorry to hear your experience at our lodge did not meet your expectations. Due to our location in the middle of the Gobi desert, we do encounter wildlife and some insects on a regular basis, although we do our best to limit these encounters. We understand the hygiene concern regarding flies and rodents, especially in the dining area, and we have taken measures to ensure these incidents do not continue to occur. Being that our property was built an as eco-lodge with conservation at the forefront and desert locations, water conservation is important to us. At check-in all guests are requested to conserve water and are informed that there is 50 liter hot water heater in every Ger. Once that amount is depleted we have to re-fill the tank and heat the water and this process requires more than an hour. We have a manager on duty at all times at our lodge so there may have been some type of misunderstanding when you asked for a manager. Please feel free to contact our office directly (info@threecamellodge.com) at your convenience if you would like to provide us with more details of your stay. We strive to provide all of our guests with the ultimate and most authentic Gobi experience, as such all reviews are important to us as they allow us to better our services and accommodations to our travelers. Wishing you continued safe travels. Thank you.

Wow! This place was a breath of fresh air after the places we’ve stayed in around Mongolia. The best glamping in the country! The staff and services were great! It’s a long ride from Dalanzadgad airport. But once we arrived the setting made up for it. Keep in mind there are no roads around so it is one bumpy ride to the camp. The gers come with their own toilet (no door to the bathroom) and shower. There’s eco friendly soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. Everything is eco friendly. You have to ask for a hairdryer. Good news is there is an electric outlet! Lighting is good but was limited because of solar energy. Water is limited so plan on taking quick showers (I’m sure you will it’s either freezing cold or boiling hot in the mornings, in my ger at least). Get extra portable lighting/flash lights and extra batteries just in case electricity goes off (it did a few times we were there, but briefly as I had to run over in the dark to ask for help). Ok so the bad news is there’s no TV (like all camps) or WiFi, but they don’t see this as bad as the place screams of unwinding and relaxation. There is a tv room under the bar and they have a handful of movies and documentaries, all Mongolia-related, and they’re a good selection. The bar area is where you go to read, drink and get to know other guests. The restaurant opens during meal times only and you can see what they’re cooking for lunch and dinner through the kitchen windows. All set menu so you have to give them your allergies and dietary options. Breakfast buffet was really really good. The food is the best we had during our whole stay in Mongolia! There are a few activities like horse riding and electric scooters. And of course excursions. You take the walkway up the hill behind the camp and walk for about 5 minutes to the sunset viewing area which is a great place on the other side of the hill. I recommend staying for at least 2 nights. We stayed 4 nights and it was great.
