There are 20 ethnic groups in total in Mongolia. One of them is Tsaatan (Reindeer people). Hidden in an isolated corner of Northern Mongolia, straddling the border of Russian Siberia, a unique minority group lives in the sprawling tundra. Around 50 Tsaatan families live a remote nomadic life, migrating from place to place in search of valuable resources to continue their existence. Minority people can be found all throughout Asia, but the Tsaatan people are notably different for the livestock that they keep. Not yaks, camels, goats or horses, but reindeer. These reindeer herders have been attracting international attention over the last few years for their unique and unchanged way of life. This tour offers you a great opportunity to experience it.
