Genghis Khan Retreat

Prepare for a timeless nomadic adventure at this remote enclave of traditional Mongolian gers.

Connect with one of the world’s last surviving nomadic cultures at this unique retreat surrounded by the stunning wilderness of the Orkhon Valley. Guests are invited to explore this untamed landscape on foot and on horseback, glide along rivers in kayaks and try their hand at ancient Mongolian pursuits such as archery. You’ll find natural wonders and historical sites alike on your doorstep, including Karakorum - the first capital of the Mongol empire.

Guests seeking a more serene day can choose to reconnect with daily yoga practice; try a Mongolian massage with the camp’s masseuse or even experience traditional healing rituals with the resident Shaman. Convivial family-style mealtimes showcase the best of locally sourced ingredients, replete with hand-pulled noodles, homemade breads, grilled meats and freshly caught fish. Gourmet packed lunches are provided for excursions.

Memorable nights are spent ensconced in 20 beautifully hand-painted gers fitted with wood burning stoves and cashmere bedding. Despite its remote location, these traditional comforts are complimented by levels of service you’d expect from a world-class luxury hotel.
