Glamping, or “glamourous camping” allows you to have the best of both worlds — the freedom of camping and the comfort of a guesthouse. Our authentic Mongolian yurts, stable and tent are fully furnished with real beds and have power, lighting and heating. You can walk, ramble, climb, horse ride, visit and sight-see to your hearts content and then return to the comfort of your cosy glamping yurt, stable or tent  and a good night’s sleep.
