7 days Real Nomadic Homestay

If one of your major goals while in Mongolia is to be able to homestay with a real nomadic family, to observe how they live and possibly enjoy a home cooked meal with them and can have a mutual learning experience. Staying alongside a family is likely to be one of the most memorable parts of your journey. Since we began designing and arranging journeys to Mongolia, we've been setting up small homestays in partnership with nomadic families, thus providing additional income for them and an intimate authentic experience to our clients.  Spend 7 days at a homestay and get stuck in to family life! Learn first-hand of the infamous nomadic hospitality, sharing milk tea, snuff, nomadic vodka and fermented mare's milk, help out with chores such as milking and try your hand at making dairy products. Learn about the daily challenges of nomadic life whilst playing a game of ankle bones or crafting delicious Mongolian dumplings.

  • Day 1: Nomad Home Stay

    Pass By: Kharagiin Khiid, Darhan Mongolia
    Generally, the families will have a spare ger which will be available for you sleep in, on other occasions, you might be camping in a ger next to a nomadic family, sharing the family ger, which will offer am unforgettable family-stay experience. Facilities are very basic, with no running water and definitely no en-suite! Get back to basics as you live like nomads do. The nomad families, we choose for our customers have extra gers you can stay with a little bit of your privacy at nights or you can even stay in their ger. In case they move far areas or if you wish to stay with nomad families in areas where we do not have nomadic partners, then we have to choose any of the family and should join their gers as Mongolians usually do. They are happy when people visit their home and they like to share what they have and show what they do daily. While you stay with the nomad families, you can eat and learn how to make the traditional meals, fresh dairy products, homemade cookies, pancakes, and breads, how to tend and milk animals and so on. It’s a very hard life, especially surviving in bitter winters, where temperatures drop down to -40°C in some parts and staying with nomads in winter will be real experience and adventure of Mongolia.

    We will drop you off your chosen Nomad Family and pick you up after you're being real nomad.
