Mongolian Memories – A Roundup of 30 Days Of Travel
During our 30 days of traveling in Mongolia, we learned so much about the country, the culture and the customs. We were lucky to witness the biggest festival of all, the Naadam Festival and to hear traditional throat singing and see tribal dancing.
We helped build a ger from the ground up and were invited into gers of families who have never seen foreigners before, while being showered with gifts, food and hospitality. We navigated our way through massive markets and pondered the past in national museums.
We rode horses through canyons and climbed up massive sand dunes in the diverse Gobi Desert. Our 6 day Mongolian desert tour was a lot of fun and an experience we’ll never forget.
We used a compass and a map to independently navigate our way through an epic 8 day trek along the Chulut River. We fished, camped, hiked and walked through all sorts of terrain…while enduring torrential downpours of rain.
We saw monasteries and mountains, camels and horses, luminous lakes and rushing rivers.
We encountered more goats, cows, yaks and sheep than we could possibly count and witnessed a wild owl being saved from hungry eagles and hawks.
