Three Camel Lodge in The Gobi, Mongolia, has been a foundational eco-resort as we set about compiling a list of the best eco-resorts worldwide.
Three Camel Lodge is luxurious in a way you would not perhaps expect for its Gobi Desert setting. The Gobi is known as a rugged frontier territory and vast space, then finding a property like this makes the exploration of that space much more viable, even if that does take something of a challenge away. For those looking to explore Mongolia’s culture and ancient traditions, this eco-lodge offers a way in. And you can do this in a way that your very presence is not going to take away from the very thing you came to see. A great deal of effort has gone into looking after the authentic environmental culture and that the local community is empowered by tourism.
This is one of the most famous 5-star ecolodges in Mongolia and is gaining attention for the quality of service. For experienced travelers looking for something a little different and pushing the adventure factor up a few notches, this has become a go-to antidote to some of the more mundane, over-touristed destinations. In essence, this is an experience grounded in maintaining the authentic aspects of nomadic Mongolian culture, great food, unbelievably spectacular vast landscapes, wildlife encounters, and local art.
We rate this resort well for its sustainability characteristics (8/10) but is has also been included in the Beyond Green portfolio. Everything is done with comfort in mind, from the woodstove to the stone shower, while maintaining authenticity.
An experience here comprises 40 individual gers, a bar, restaurant, spa, horse stables, and excursions to historical sites.
