Ger to Ger to Ger…

ger on the Steppe, Mongolia

Each evening on my tour in Mongolia, we stopped by some incredibly scenic places to either set up tents or stay with a host ger (yurt) family.

These families are nomadic, setting up their camp in one place for warmer weather and another place in winter. We were always given our own ger, sometimes with beds, and I was usually surprised by how comfortable they were.

ger in the Gobi Desert, Mongolia

Also surprising, was how colourful and beautifully designed they were inside.

They provided excellent shelter from the harsh elements and stayed relatively cool in the middle of the Gobi Desert.
