Orkhon Eco camp
Orkhon Camp is probably the best place to stay in the Orkhon Valley. Its location near the Orkhon river and amidst all the landmarks of the valley makes it a perfect foothold for any visitor exploring this region of Mongolia. The camp is only 7 km away from the waterfall, 35 km away from Tuvkhun Monastery, 45 km away from the Eight lakes and 104 km away from Kharkhorin.
Restaurant and Eco-friendly
Orkhon Camp is made up of 20 fully equipped gers, a restaurant, as well as showers and toilets. Our restaurant and bar serve delicious Mongolian and Western dishes, as well as all sorts of beverages.
Furthermore, our camp is Eco-friendly. We have a greenhouse to produce our own vegetables. Our electricity entirely comes from solar energy. Our hot showers are also fueled by solar water heaters. Moreover, we have both standard and Eco-friendly dry toilets.
Horse riding and Visit local families
There are a lot of activities that you can practice in or around Orkhon Camp. If you want to do horse riding, our local partners can provide fully equipped horses and guides for you. You can also go and visit local nomad families living near the camp so you can taste and maybe buy their products. We suggest you to taste the fermented mare milk that that Mongolians call "airag" and the traditional Mongolian yogurt called "tarag", made of Yak's milk.
Rafting and fishing
Orkhon Camp is located on the banks of the Orkhon river. This location, 7 km away from the largest waterfall of Mongolian makes it perfect for rafting. We are the only camp that provides rafting in the Orkhon Valley. Orkhon Camp is also a great fishing spot. There are basically two types of fish in the river: grey lings and trouts. The best way to catch them is fly fishing. Our cooks can prepare the fish that you caught or you can use our utensils and barbecue to cook them by yourself.
Each year, several festivals are organised at the valley: The Naadam (8th and 9th of July), the felt festival (22nd of July) and the yak festival (23rd of July). It is a great opportunity for travellers to discover Mongolian culture through fascinating activities such as Mongolian wrestling, horse racing or the making of traditional Mongolian felt.
