  Khorgo 1 ger camp
by Saagar

Based on local advice we traveled to the lakeshore of Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur only to find the Khorgo 2 ger camp closed for the season and the gers removed. Bummer! Our driver pushed on to some private gers further up the lakeshore that had space for rent, but it wasn't what we were looking for in terms of privacy and comfort this time.
We therefore backtracked to the Khorgo 1 ger camp in the Zurkh Gol valley and booked in for 12 USD/night per person, considerable less than the list price of the Tsolmon Travel company that runs it.

Unique Qualities: Some 20 gers arranged in a broad valley. Nearby scattered larch forests, hills and mountains (beyond 3000 meters), easily accessible day hikes, horse riding opportunity, view toward the Khorgo Uul volcano (2 kms), close to the lake (3-4 kms).
The food was good, an international twist to Mongolian raw materials. The only place where I have been served fish.
Separate washing/shower /toilet facility with warm water.

Address: On a side road between Tariat town and Terkhiin Tsaagan Nuur eastern lakeshore.
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Central Mongolia, in the Arkhangai province along the Tsetserleg to Tsontsengel road/track.
Price: less than US$20
Theme: Other

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
