This is one of the biggest ger camp and is located in a beautiful setting which is good for taking a stroll in the early morning. The ger is spacious and clean and toilet facilities is great. A good place for star gazing at night as well.
This was the largest ger camp we stayed at. It is close to the old temple ruins and surrounded by a nice river etc for easy hikes. The operation feels a bit more commercial than other ger camps we stayed at. Was quite large with large dining area, separate large lounge etc. It had many showers with hot water (bonus!). Gers were good with towels and nice pillows (not beanbag ones). Washrooms needed updating or a few more based on the number of guests. Overall nice place.
It would be inappropriate to compare ger camps in Mongolia to hotels or motels elsewhere. We stayed in a total of 10 on a tour of the country and have rated them against each other. As a point of reference ger camps are somewhere between camping and ‘glamping’, far more comfortable than just groundsheet and canvas but also far from the luxury of the ‘camps’ in Botswana or South Africa. What the ger (never call them yurts!) camps had in common was safety, spotless cleanliness (truly amazing given their remote locations), spacious gers and comfortable beds. Food was usually plentiful, edible but bland. Most breakfasts were buffet style and both lunch and dinner were three or four courses - typically salad, a meat course with a vegetarian option and canned fruit or cake for dessert. Secret of Ongi was one of our least favourite and largest camps. It's in a pretty location, has 24 hour electricity and hot showers.However it has a relatively commercial feel. WiFi is good in the restaurant area but charged for, coffee and other goodies are available but at western prices. The gers were too close together so even soft spoken voices could easily be heard. The impractical layout of our bed necessitating climbing over each other to get out and was a failed attempt to hide some faulty flooring. This was the only bed on our trip that lacked comfort - we could feel every spring!.…
Tourist ger camps are the only infrastructure available outside the city and towns. Secret of Ongi is in a beautiful location within walking distance of the ruins, and offers good, basic accommodation in an authentic ger. Clean and relatively comfortable, we had plenty of space, a locking door and power. Good on-site facilities with warm showers and western toilets, and a good restaurant with plenty of variety. Cash (Mongolian Tugrik) bar. No wifi was offered.
Get place to stay in that they have great facilities and even a spa. Food and service was great. However the Ger(s) are fake in that they are prefabricated to look like Ger(s) and not what are traditionally used. Nice place to stop when traveling to the Southern Gobi as it is within walking distance to the Ongii Ruins/Monastery. But overall a bit more touristy then true experience.
