Itinerary

Nomadic culture has survived for real, only in Mongolia unlike in other places where traditional way of life is artificially arranged to be shown in the special tourist spots. In this 21st century of science and technology in Mongolia you can see the real people living their everyday life in the nomadic way of life that has been unique since before the Mongol empire ruled the world. They move for good pasture for the livestocks all year round, mostly unmotorized – meaning that horse and camel are still working as main means of transportation. Mongolians are known for their great hospitality so you can stay in nomadic family to witness this unique life that is unlike anywhere else, includes diary-making, assembling and disassembling of their house called Ger (or yurt) in just an hour, which is shelter for Mongolians from freezing -40C in winter to +40 in summer.
