Mongolia Expeditions' team travelled to the Taiga far north where Tsaatan (reindeers) lives

Mongolia Expeditions’ team travelled to the Northern Mongolia behind a Khoridol Saridag mountain range, there is a mystical land of prairie, boreal forest and a few hundred lakes scattered over a wide plain called the Darkhad lowland. Deer, wild boar, squirrel, beaver, otter, ermine, marten, sable and wolf inhabit this remote part of our country, part of Siberia. Due to isolated and inaccessible location the most pristine and unpopulated lands in whole Mongolia lie here.

As authentic is the culture of the reindeer herders of whom there is just a couple of hundreds living in teepees and grazing their reindeer in taiga forest and on alpine meadows.
