Central Mongolia

Ursa Major is one of the two ecolodges launched by the brand “Out of Nowhere”, a new generation of ecological lodges established in Mongolia. Ursa Major boasts spectacular views on the Orkhon Valley, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and is located a stone’s throw away from Khujirt and 40 kilometres from the former capital Kharkhorin.

15 tastefully decorated gers are set up on the eastern bank of the Orkhon River. The gers are fabricated  with traditional materials and fitted to ensure a great comfort: king size beds or two separated single beds, silk sleeping bags, furniture painted in warm colours, felt carpet on the ground, and traditional decor. No electricity or running water is available at the lodge to minimize its impact on the environment. Guests are provided with towels perfumed with essential oils twice a day for cleansing. A screen in each yurt provides a private space in which there is a small reserve of water for washing.

The lodge also has a telescope for star gazing in the evenings – a wonderful experience!

Ursa Major Geolodge is the sister property of Sweet Gobi Geolodge.
