Tunga Guest House

Tunga Guest House

DSCN7044BUSINESS TYPE: Guesthouse / Ger Camp / Driver / Guide


OPEN: Year-round

BIO: Established in 1999, the owner (Amara) and his wife (Tunga) have managed this business for over 10 years.  They have 4-5 gers available on a unique peninsula on the south side of White Lake, and most recently just opened the brand-new Guest House (for the 2011 season) in the Tariat soum center.  

They are happy to organize horse riding tours, jeep tours, fishing trips, and even visits to nearby nomadic families.  Many of the workers live in the country-side most of the year, so they have contacts with families in the area.  If you ask, they may even join you on a hike in the nearby hills/mountains.  The horses are humble enough and they have 3-4 reliable guides.  There are many different horse riding trip length options to fit any budget.

Tunga is a local English teacher, so communicating your needs/desires is not difficult at all.  

Amara has been to most of the aimags in Mongolia, and has experience driving on all terrain.  This experience is invaluable when organizing tours.  His car is reliable and in good condition.  They have a Russian style jeep, a minibus, and a traveling car available for transport.

Travelers who have visited Tunga Guest House have really enjoyed the activities offered, and typically leave feeling they experienced the "real" Mongolia.  They were even featured in the Lonely Planet Handbook (editions 2 & 3) as one of the places to visit when coming to Tariat and White Lake.
