Explore a land of yak herding nomads, Buddhist temples, and dramatic landscapes in stunning countryside of Mongolia. You will have plenty of opportunities to encounter and interact with local nomadic families while learning from their cultures and traditions.  Highlights of the trip include, among other, annual Yak Festival, encounter with Mongolian nomads, a picturesque Ulaan Tsutgalan waterfall. Horse riding with nomadic families will hopefully be one of the most rewarding experiences as well.
