I travel alot, and I have to say that this was one of the most memorable holidays of my whole life! Jalman Meadows is a remote camp, about 3.5 hours from UB. There is not a whole lot to do. No internet ... no phone service. However ... there is wonderful nature ... beautiful gers to sleep in ... and remarkably good food. I went on a half day horse ride ... a river rafting trip ... and a hike up a mountain ... during my 3 days at the camp. However, what I appreciated most was the ability to sleep properly for the first time in ages ... to read books ... and just to relax without the pressures of my very busy life. I will never forget my three days at Jalman ... and can't wait to go back. If you are lucky enough to visit Mongolia, then please go to this place. You will not regret it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Jalman Meadows is located on the Upper Tuul River, which meanders gently through the vast meadows of wildflowers and through the lush hills that holds larch forests and birch. It is silent and peaceful here, except for the buzzes of grasshoppers and the singing of the birds. The time seems to stand still in this remote place. At Jalman Meadows, Nomadic Journeys operates this wilderness ger camp in a 360 degree landscape. The ger camp is seasonal in the summers, and is fully collapsible. It may be relocated leaving no more impact on the area than a herdsmen family would. It has 14 double occupancy gers and triples may be accommodated in these. There are also 2 family size gers, with one double bed and two singles. The gers have fire stoves, wooden floors and are beautifully decorated in traditional nomadic style with hand-crafted furnishings. Showers are provided in two separate gers. The shower ger has a fire stove, why it is warm and cozy. It is five-star camping at its best. Activities offered at camp are horseback riding, rafting, hiking, bird watching, kayaking, river side ger sauna and mountain biking. ... more less
