Building an Eco-Lodge
Electricity to power light bulbs in the gers, restaurant, bathrooms, and bar is provided mainly by solar power. Wind energy is also used as a supplementary source of energy. The energy consumption is constantly re-evaluated for efficiency and measures are taken to reduce usage as much as possible.
Unprocessed natural stone was used for the buildings and traditional Mongolian felt ger tents are used as guest rooms. Local artisans and workers crafted the roofs of the buildings in accordance with the canons of Mongolian Buddhist architecture, without using a single nail.
Drainage fields used for non-drinking water were made three times larger than local requirements to make water reusable and less wasteful. TheThree Camel Lodge is exploring systems to reuse non-drinking water for watering trees and supplying toilets.
All trash is separated and transported to neighboring dump areas. The Three Camel Lodge is the only local camp to practice this sorting and recycling.
