Mongolian Gers aka yurts are the traditional housing in the nomadic style of the country. Even on the edges of Ulaanbaatar, you’ll find sprawling ger districts full of families who want to live in the classic style while still enjoying all the conveniences of life in the capital city. Staying in a ger during your stay is definitely an experience that you won’t want to miss out on. If you’re getting out into the countryside at all, you’ll find that many families will graciously open their homes to travelers—just talk to your guide about this. However, If they don't, there still will be manifold tourist ger camps for you to experience a mix between the classic yurt experience and a standard hotel stay. If your trip is going to be based in Ulaanbaatar, I recommend checking out ger camps in nearby Terelj National Park. In another word, I recommend heading down to the Gobi Desert and staying in the Three Camel Lodge or one of the other ger camps there amongst the sands: nothing is quite like staying in a tent in the middle of the desert!
