We’ve started our big journey in September 2015. One of our dreams was going to Mongolia to see the nomads’ life – how they live, what they eat, how they spend time during a day, what are their traditions and beliefs.
We stayed 4 nights in steppes, lived in gers with Mongols, ate with them, drunk with them their home-made vodka and beer, shepherded the sheeps, rode a horse and much more. This country is the best place we’ve ever visited and for sure we want to come back there one day.
Horse back riding in Mongolian steppes were one of the biggest dreams
Vodka called ‘Archi’
The traditional Mongolian ger is their easy-to-move home
Animals are inseparable part of nomad’s life
From fermented cows’ milk Mongols prepare kind of beer called ‘Ayrak’
And also natural yogurt
We saw lots of skulls of animals which had been eaten by wolfs and vultures
That’s how the inside of ger looks like
And here is a toilet
Horses are the most important animals for Mongols, kind of saint
Shepherding the sheeps on motorbike with Mongolian nomad
Going with Russian UAZ through Mongolian steppes
Orkhon river near Kharakorum
And the most beautiful sky above our heads
