Traveller’s comments 2009-09-16 Iain and Eleanor (USA)
A beautiful setting among friendly Mongolians who took great care of us and played with us. From the camp’s little girl to the soft faced and kind horsemen, we were rather enchanted. The best food and best sized portions, we have had so far in 3 weeks in Mongolia, THANK YOU CHEF! To be outnumbered by Mongolians and to live as such (with the very welcome luxury of a sauna) was everything we had hoped for!
