There are 30 gers which are portable, bent dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Mongolia and Central Asia. The structure comprises a crown or compression wheel, usually steam bent, supported by roof ribs which are bent down at the end where they meet the lattice wall (again, steam bent). The top of the wall is prevented from spreading by means of a tension band which opposes the force of the roof ribs. The structure is usually covered by layers of fabric and sheep's wool felt for insulation and weatherproofing.
Mongolians have been living in this round shaped tent for hundreds of years surviving through harsh climate of Mongolian steppes. Because of easy portability, gers proved extremely useful dwelling for the nomadic people of Mongolia. When you visit Hoyor Zagal Lodge, you will be able to enjoy truly first hand experience of living as a Nomad.
