Three Camel Lodge Sustainability

April 15, 2021 – Three Camel Lodge is proud to announce that it has joined Beyond Green – a global portfolio of hotels, resorts, and lodges that exemplify sustainable leadership. Launched on November 17, 2020, Beyond Green was created to provide a more purposeful way to explore the world where good guests meet good hosts, presenting genuine hospitality by the people for the planet.

Opened in 2002, Three Camel Lodge offers travelers the spirit of Mongolia and its nomadic people through authentic experiences while preserving the very earth and culture the lodge proudly showcases.

“Sustainability is more than a founding principle at Three Camel Lodge,” says Jalsa Urubshurow, Founder and CEO of Three Camel Lodge and sister company Nomadic Expeditions. “It guides every decision of operating the lodge to best take care of the land, the wildlife, Mongolia’s people, culture and traditions.”

Nestled in the heart of the starkly serene Gobi Desert, the 40 felt and canvas gers that comprise the luxury ecolodge are modeled on authentic Mongolian nomadic dwellings, while the main lodge building design and construction was inspired by traditional Buddhist temples, its mortise and tenon roofs were built using no nails.

Three Camel Lodge is both a pioneer and shepherd of numerous sustainability initiatives in Mongolia including: the use of 100%  solar energy to light all guest gers, constructing facilities with local materials, sourcing 50% of all supplies from within 50 miles, an independent recycling program in a remote desert where a formal one does not exist, 100% Mongolian staffing, a proven program of training and promotion, scholarship program, sponsorship for students studying music and the performing arts, and helping to breed the Mongolian Bankhar (Mastiff) dogs to have positive impact on both cultural preservation and wildlife conservation.

The lodge also offers incredible amenities and world-class service, including fine dining, a renowned bar, exquisite traditional restorative spa services, and perhaps the greatest luxury of all—boundless peacefulness. Truly it is the ideal base from which to explore the exquisite cultural excursions of the region—from camel trekking rolling seas of dunes, to exploring the fertile Yol Valley and its unique wildlife, to marveling at the Flaming Cliffs as they glow red at sunset, basking the  sands that entomb paleontological treasures from more than 70 million years ago. More than a place to stay, Three Camel Lodge is a state of mind.

As a member of Beyond Green, Three Camel Lodge has committed to continue delivering on the three pillars of sustainable tourism – environmentally friendly practices that go beyond the basics; protection of natural and cultural heritage; and contribution to the social and economic wellbeing of local communities – and adhere to more than 50 sustainability indicators that align with global sustainable tourism criteria and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
