SERVICE TO GUESTS
Whether you are Mongolian or foreigner, boy or girl, whatever your background is, if you are more than 18 years old, you can join us and participate to our programmes to develop sustainable tourism in the Orkhon Valley for a few days or up to one month.
Orkhon Camp has always been involved in the improvement of both the environment and the lives of the local population through sustainable tourism development. You too can help us achieve this goal.
Here are the different tasks that you might be interested in:
Construction and Gardening (from April to July)
Orkhon Camp is going to modernize itself and undergo lots of work among which the construction of a pool, a greenhouse and a garden. We want to plant trees and grow vegetables. We also want to install solar water heaters, improve our shower and toilet facilities as well as our kitchen. If you want to, you can also participate to the mounting of our gers. It is for this kind of tasks that we need volunteers the most. If this interests you, we would be glad to receive you to take part in it. For you, it would be the opportunity to learn construction or gardening techniques and enjoy some physical and creative work. You can work here as long as you want from 5 days to one month or more.

If you want to join us and help preserve the environment of the Orkhon Valley, you can participate in our 2 day-cleanup programmes on May 14 and 15 and in June 11 and 12.
