On our tours, we maximize the opportunity to meet the local people: To discover how they live, what their beliefs and values are. When traveling with us, our guests have the unique opportunity to learn about the nomadic culture in an authentic and non-touristic setting.

The families and communities in our network are of diverse ethnic identities and live in different rural areas all throughout Mongolia.
