When in Rome....or in this case, the middle of nowhere, Mongolia, you're going to be staying in a ger. I found the experience both troublesome and delightful. I wasn't the best at figuring out how much wood to throw into the fireplace to keep the ger warm. There's a bit of a balancing act between heating it up and turning it into a sauna. However, the experience of staying in a bit more simpler set up, the way many Mongolians still live today, was refreshing and exciting compared to another major chain hotel.
It was raining a lot while I was in Mongolia, but on the up side, it meant a rainbow appeared above this hotel. Well, maybe hotel is not the right word to use, but hotels in Mongolia are often a collection of gers set up to host tourists. In most of the places I went, I didn't see too many foreigners, which helps up the cultural immersion level.
Inside a ger like this is where I spent my night.
