Ger districts can be found in most Mongolian cities. These low-cost neighborhoods comprise traditional tent-like homes located in outer parts of the city, which usually lack basic infrastructure and utilities. An estimated 60% of Ulaanbaatar’s population lives in ger districts. They provide the only affordable habitations for large numbers of urban migrants from the countryside.
