The Luxurious Camp - 3 Camel Lodge Jul 09, 2009
3 Camel Lodge is the most luxurious camp in Gobi; it is equivalent to a 5 star hotel. They provide modern facilities yet retained the Mongolian traditional style. It also built according to the environmentally sustainability development guidelines. We had a chance to speak to the owner of this lodge who is a Mongolian born in America. He told us they built this lodge by hand in 3 years and all the logs were brought in from Siberia because he didn’t want to cut down any trees in Mongolia. 3 Camel Lodge is a sister company of the famous Nomadic Expeditions tour operator. The logo of Nomadic Expeditions has 3 camels; that’s how they came up with the name of 3 Camel Lodge.

Inside our camp, there are 2 double beds, table, thermal flask, tea bags and cups. 2 table lamps and a candle burner, 2 hangers, 2 slippers, 2 bathrobes. The toilet attached to the camp with tiles wall and floor, modern sink. One thing worth mention about is they also provide bio – eco amenities! The moisturizer is made from camel milk. When you look at the clean toilet, you will think you are in a modern 5 star hotel’s toilet. From the outside, you will see 2 ger camps built next to each other; one of them is the toilet! Even our tour leader was impressed by it!

3 Camel Lodge has a huge restaurant that is in a ger camp style connected to a library cum bar that made out of wooden logs. At the lower lever of the restaurant building is an office, public shower room, toilets and a massage room. Outside the bar, there are 2 hand-made wooden swings where you can have a wonderful view of the desert while relaxing with the desert wind blowing all the time. We spent a great amount of time on the swing!

There is also a rest area by the end of the camp where the table and chairs are made out of rock. If you hike up to the hill, there is another rest area where the table and chairs made out of wood. You will find a wonderful sun set view and the view of entire 3 Camel Lodge sitting in the middle of Gobi desert. However it was too windy that day and we didn’t get to see the sun set…

We saw most of the camp has it own solar panel to provide electricity. And they also has their own green house to grow vegetable! The combination of modern facilities with the Mongolian traditional accommodations make 3 Camel Lodge so much different form the rest of the standard tourist camp else where.
