Gers are excellent for a wide variety of purposes. It can be used as a primary house, guest room, office, or anything else you can imagine!
The door, roof poles, and roof crown are hand-painted with traditional Mongolian design and constructed of renewable larch wood. The wood is painted and hand-detailed with beautiful Mongolian designs using lead-free paint. Gers come with yak hair rope, camel sinew ties, cotton liner, felt (natural sheep wool or synthetic), canvas cover, and water repellent outer cover. Mongolia is a high elevation, cold, and dry climate. For this reason, we include synthetic felt option which is better suited for more moist climates. As pictured, the natural wool felt is thicker than the synthetic felt.
Each ger is a unique hand-made cultural item. Traditional Mongolian gers differ from the more modern Western yurts. Our Mongolian gers do not have windows, although large windows can be purchased at as an upgrade (pictured). In Mongolian gers, the roof slopes lower at the interior walls (you cannot fully stand at the edges of the walls). The source of light is the open door and the roof crown (you can finish the roof crown with glass or plastic for a more permanent setup).
However, its stout frame is extremely sturdy with its center roof crown supports. These gers are made for the a harsh climate and can withstand wind, temporary snowpack (remove snowpack daily), and stays incredibly warm inside–you can even install a wood-burning stove inside with the pipe exiting the roof crown.
