Good gercamp along the riverbank Nov 10, 2012
N45°20'10.8" E104°0'29.1" Beneath the completely destroyed Ongiin monastery opposite a huge new Kazak gercamp, this tourist gercamp with about 15 gers is located on the riverbank. You can set up your own tent along it. Electricity is 24 hours on, so cold beer comes as a welcome treat and of course recharging all batteries after crossing the Gobi. Cellular phone reception is available on higher grounds. The restaurant offers simple but tasteful meals. The ablution block offers warm showers and the use of a washing machine.

The ger inside is basic, like the twin beds during our one night stay in August 2012.

Next to the Ongiin Monastery Aug 26, 2011
This camp is beautifully situated next to a river and within walking distance from the Ongiin Monastery. Next to a visit to the Ongiin Monastery you can also do some great hiking from here. The camp is set up in several terraces and the private gers are all set on a brick platform. I suppose this is the reason there is a large rock hanging from a rope in the middle of every private ger. If the door is open and there is a strong wind, the entire ger will get blown away.

The gers are conveniently decorated, but do have a funny smell. The mattresses are less hard as they are in other camps, but the pillows are horrible.

This camp has 24 hours of electricity, every ger has a light bulb and an electrical socket, so this is an excellent place to recharge camera’s and batteries. There’s also a very fast laundry service, over here they even iron your clothes.

The food is excellent, toilets and showers are clean. The water is almost warm (at certain times, ask the staff for the best time to take a shower), but again there is barely any water pressure.

The lights at the camp go out very early, so take a flashlight to find the toilets.
