Most ger camps in Mongolia fail to lift themselves beyond the ordinary. Jalman does exactly that and in some style. Attention to detail is obvious in the decoration of the accommodation, library, restaurant and shower gers. The accommodation gers have a particular "wow" factor when you first enter them. Add to that the beautiful mountain and river setting, the wandering Yak herds, an extremely helpful and friendly staffing of eager young Mongolians, the relative absence of marauding tourists and you have the makings of an idyll. Even a week here would be too little to do it full justice and most folk will stay substantially shorter periods than that. There's plenty to keep you occupied with rafting, kayaking, walking, riding, archery and even the chance to role play in traditional Mongolian dress. You may also hear a yak munching grass behind your ger in the small hours.

A couple of negatives : the food does not reach the highs of some other ger camps, although it does have its moments and the cash bar is somewhat over-priced.

Room Tip: Go for one of the gers furthest from the central restauarnt ger

Let's get this out of the way: If you want to experience the Steppe in a comfortable and relaxing setting, look no further than Jalman Meadows!

Honestly, I didn't know what to expect, though. I booked this at the last minute as part of a RTW trip and I'm so glad I did.

I was lucky to snag the last ger during my intended dates. I also chose to book a guide to accompany me, which turned out to be a good thing because she made it much easier to adapt to camp and plan my time.

Once you arrive at Jalman Meadows, the activities are many: From mountain biking (fantastic!) to trekking (beautiful...) to horseback riding (you have to do this!), all of the activities are approachable and rewarding.

The scenery is beautiful and encourages total relaxation. The food was delicious and the accommodations quite comfortable. I left with many new friends and eager to return.

Check it out, I'm sure you'll enjoy your time.

Room Tip: For the most fun, sign up for a guide who speaks your language.

Really. This was unforgettable. If only it had lasted longer than two nights. The trip from Ulan Bator is long and bumpy but then you find yourself in the most beautiful river valley. Not wilderness exactly for there are people around, but not many. The gers are set up in a crescent on a large flowery meadow that turns into forest or grassy slopes on the surrounding hills. Everything seems to be shades of living green and blue sky. It's almost to lovely for words.
The gers are lovely too, and quite comfortable (except for the beds that are somewhat hard). Bathroom facilites are necessarily somewhat basic, but perfectly adequate with gravity fed basins in the gers and communal outhouses.
There is no shortage of things to do and places to go. The food in the main ger was good and plentiful. Service likewise. Bring warm clothes and a rain jacket. The weather can change fast. But the sun is soon back.

Lovely gers in this small wilderness camp. Lighting and lockable box, outside chairs, cushions etc. Little wash basin.

Library ger with games equipment (archery etc), books and telescope.

Flies can be a problem so there are some netted seating areas to enjoy beers, although these are expensive here (the most expensive we came across, almost double other places).

Good / interesting shower gers.

Food fairly good although some meat was found in 'veggie' soup one evening.

Good location for riding.

We stayed at Jalman Meadows for three days and wished we had arranged a longer stay. It is very remote and tranquil, all quiet, such beautiful nature, amazing views. We hiked up mountains and on flatlands, rode horses with local nomads for half a day. We also got to visit a local nomadic family in their home with the help from one of the staff who translated, and were able to ask questions about their daily life - so interesting! The gers are cozy, beds very comfortable and we slept like babies. Good food, and also available for vegetarians. Friendly staff.This was the very highight of our trip, we just loved Jalman Meadows.

Stayed: June 2017, traveled with family
