This was a wonderful ger camp. It was gorgeous and they attended to our every need. We're vegetarians, which can be difficult in Mongolia. No problem. The food was lavish, wonderful. It was September and the trees were golden. I've never been to a more beautiful spot. We'd brought bikes from Ulaanbaatar, but the mountain bikes at the Lodge were solid and would have worked well.
When my husband needed to go to the hospital, I was so grateful we'd booked here. They mobilized jeeps, SUVs and the company doctor. They sent one of the ladies from the kitchen so that the doctors could know what he'd eaten. The hospitality director stayed with us in the emergency room and took us to a hotel when we got out. Our rented bikes were stored in the company garage until I could deal with them. They provided continuing support until we left Mongolia. It was extraordinary. We'd only booked one night at the Lodge, and they treated us like family.
It's lovely to go to the back of beyond, a great privilege. Usually everything goes off without a hitch, in which case Tuul Riverside Lodge is the place. So lovely and so much to do. In a place somewhat lacking in infrastructure, though, it's nice to know you're staying with people who can get you through. This is definitely the place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Tuul Riverside Lodge is a small, fully sustainable, traditional Mongolian camp surrounded by a sea of grass and rolling hills, which stretch down to the nearby River Tuul and beyond. Situated within an hour’s drive east of Mongolia’s bustling capital Ulaanbaatar, a warm, and peaceful welcome awaits you. You will stay in beautifully decorated traditional yurts, known locally as gers, with the added advantage of en suite facilities. Gers are constructed from a wooden lattice frame, 88 roof poles, and are covered with layers of felt to insulate against the harsh Mongolian climate. Both strong and reliable, they are perfect places to spend your time in Mongolia. At the Tuul Riverside Lodge there is something for everyone, regardless of age, experience or ability. We offer a wide range of both adventure and cultural activities, allowing you to enjoy and learn about Mongolia to the fullest. Relax around a roaring campfire and marvel as the Milky Way passes overhead. Enjoy the solitude and freedom that is Mongolia, and let your worries fade away. Given the high standards of the lodge, the beauty and tranquility of the area, and its close proximity to the city, make it the perfect place to hold small business meetings, conferences and team building activities. Whatever your needs, the Tuul Riverside Lodge is ready and able to facilitate in any way we can. We look forward to meeting you. ... more less
