This journey designed especially for small groups, families, private, and funny travel to experience the hospitality of a Mongolian Nomadic Family. Mongolia is a pasture land supporting over 50 million herd animals. Mongolians see their horse is their best friend. The Mongolian Nomadic Family milks their mares five times a day, and the cows and yaks twice. The nomads of Mongolia sustain their lives directly from the products of domesticated animals such as cattle, horses, camels, yaks, sheep, and goats. Mongolian taditional cuisine primarily consists of dairy products, meat, and animal fats. The most common rural dish is cooked mutton, often without any other ingredients. Herders live in Mongolian traditional dwelling (covered felt) Ger. What is a Ger?. This is a traditional tent of Mongolian nomads. Gers are round, with a hole in the center for ventilation. It is made of a wooden lattice covered with wool felt, and can be taken down and moved quite easily. The word Ger literally translated from the Mongolian language simply means "home of Mongolia´s nomadic families". The Ger is a symbol of Mongolia. Great opportunities for learn how to cook Mongolian traditional meals, the dairy products, play traditional games, and milk animals.
