Three Camel Lodge
Gobi Desert, Mongolia
Voted in 2009 one of the "Top 50 Eco-lodges" by National Geographic Adventure magazine, the Three Camel Lodge is a leader in Environmental Conservation and Cultural Preservation. The Lodge has the highest percentage of local employees of any camp in Mongolia, and also serves as a base for scientific research and wildlife monitoring in the Gobi Desert.
Handmade using a latticed wood structure covered with layers of felt and canvas, each ger at the Three Camel Lodge is heated by a wood stove and appointed with hand-painted wood-framed beds and furnishings. The Lodge's Deluxe Gers include a private bathroom with a toilet and sink, and amenities such as felt slippers, Mongolian-styled bathrobes and locally produced toiletries and camel milk moisturizing lotions. The elegantly simple design of the gers blends with the Gobi's remarkable landscape, and each has a southward-facing door, a nomadic Mongolian tradition, providing an unobstructed view of the desert and the Gobi-Altai Mountains.
