Renowned Ger District of Ulaanbaatar

Ger District of Ulaanbaatar

A ger district is a narrow alleyway formed by joining together household fences. When you hear people speak of “the ger district,” they often refer to the neighborhoods formed by these alleys. This tour will take you to visit the renowned ger district of Ulaanbaatar for a day!

 
The tour guide was the best guide of my life. This says something because I’ve traveled to 75 countries.

What To Expect

Ulaanbaatar’s less prosperous ger districts are far on the mountain and cramped; however, they are still an important part of the city’s history. Each ger district has its own name and characters with its own set of stories. You will see a very different side of Ulaanbaatar that most tourists do not experience.

What You'll Do

Ulaanbaatar’s less prosperous ger districts are far on the mountain and cramped; however, they are still an important part of the city’s history. Each ger district has its own name and characters with its own set of stories. Your private tour guide will meet you or your small and intimate group at the location of your choice in Ulaanbaatar, and then travel to Gandantegchilen Monastery where everyone attends the daily ancient ritual of Buddhism.

Meet local inhabitants of this less-prosperous area and learn about what daily life is like for them. Learn about the history and culture of the area from your guide as you wind through the narrow lanes and alleyways, walk down the hill, and stop at the local factories and shops.

Although this tour will include more of the local lifestyle and area of Ger district than any other standard city sightseeing tour, you will not leave Ulaanbaatar without visiting iconic attractions such as Bogd Khan's Palace Museum, Mongolian National Modern Art Gallery, Gandantegchinlen Monastery, Migjid Janraisig Sum, Bogd Khan Uul National Park, and Genghis Khan Square. 

In addition to showing you beautiful Ulaanbaatar, your knowledgeable private guide could converse with you about anything from culture to culinary art and from politics to quantum physics. After a taste of Ulaanbaatar, you will be transferred back to the location of your choice in the city.
